London, Monday 8 February. H.R. Owen has expanded its support for its customers even further with the acquisition of leading accident repair company Bodytechnics.

This most recent acquisition brings another element to the end-to-end concierge-style approach to client care offered by the UK’s number one luxury car dealer group. Bodytechnics is renowned as the UK’s leading bodyshop for prestige and luxury cars, fitting in perfectly with the H.R. Owen ethos of only offering the very best levels of service and care to their clients and further strengthening their offering way beyond sales and service.

Bodytechnics was established more than 20 years ago and enjoys long-standing relationships with many major luxury car manufacturers, including the likes of Bentley, Ferrari and Maserati, meaning it is able to carry out work that is officially approved by brands offered across the H.R. Owen group.

Bodytechnics sets itself apart from other accident repairers thanks to its expertise with the sort of rare and prestigious materials found on the most exclusive supercars and hypercars. The team is the best in the prestige accident repair business and is renowned for its ability to work with carbon fibre bodywork, and for its composite repairs.

Every aspect of the repair process, from the panel work to the paint shop, adheres to official standards set by the manufacturers, meaning that every fix is done to the highest possible level. The manufacturers regularly audit the work that Bodytechnics do, to ensure that it is at a consistent standard.

Staff are fully trained on all the latest repair methods on every manufacturer that Bodytechnics works with, although they specialise in specific models due to the technical nature of the work required.

As well as this new service, H.R. Owen is also able to offer insurance, prestige car hire and, for those special occasions, a chauffeur service that goes into London and beyond. This means that the dealer is able to bring the full circle of services, bringing whatever the client wants, when they want it.

H.R. Owen Ferrari has been named the best Ferrari dealership in the world, while Jack Barclay in Berkeley Square will be the only place in the UK where customers will be able to buy the new Chiron when it goes on sale later this year.

David Fellowes, Group Aftersales Director for H.R. Owen said: “H.R. Owen customers have been able to enjoy an unparalleled level of service when it comes to buying their car and when things are going well, but now we are able to help them out when the worst happens. Accidents happen, but they need not be a cause for concern for our customers, as we are now able to take care of everything, getting their car repaired and back on the road as good as new thanks to the expert team at Bodytechnics.”

Bodytechnics is based at state-of-the-art premises in Slough, meaning it is ideally located for H.R. Owen’s customers in London and in the South East.
