Repairify Inc., owner of the patented asTech device, has completed its acquisition of PNR Inc. doing business as TRS Theft Replacement Services LLC, Replace My Stuff (RMS) LLC and The Airbag Guy LLC.
These companies, which provide mobile electrical automotive diagnostic services in Texas, New Mexico, Maryland and Virginia, will continue operating under the asTech brand. Repairify says the addition of mobile services will complement the company’s current staff of field technicians already operating in Illinois, New Mexico, North Carolina, Florida and Georgia.
Paul Grant, owner of TRS, said, “We are excited to be part of the asTech team. Gaining access to the resources of Repairify was a major reason I decided to join the organization,” Grant added. “I look forward to developing new markets for Repairify in the near future.”
Grant will be assuming the role of vice president of business development.
RMS LLC’s owner, Steve Fairall, stated, “The market for what we do is evolving quickly and the folks at Repairify have the resources and expertise to execute. Vehicles are changing quickly and without the support of the manufactures combined with a larger organization, such as Repairify and the technologies they provide; smaller operators will have a difficult time keeping up.”
In his new role, Fairall will be responsible for business development and help lead the company’s expansion into new markets around the country.
The owner of The Airbag Guy, Chris Gutierrez, will assume responsibility for employee development and training at the company’s new headquarters in Plano, Texas. Gutierrez is an accredited I-CAR instructor and also has had the MECP certification since 2002. He also is a licensed Crash Data Retrieval analyst.
Gutierrez said, “My employees will now have access to tools, training and education that many smaller operators simply cannot afford to offer. Just as the industry is evolving there will be lots of opportunity for employees to grow into new roles as part of the larger organization.”
CEO Doug Kelly said, “We are focused on providing our collision repair customers a complete diagnostic and service solution. The addition of mobile technicians provides our customers’ the option to request help to service today’s complex vehicles,” added Kelly. “Combining on-site technicians with quality mobile diagnostic services in key markets, will help ensure our customers can stay ahead of the ever-changing automobile.”
