Wolverhampton | | Published:

Former Wolves and England striker Steve Bull has opened a new £250,000 accident repair centre in Kingswinford.

The Mayor of Dudley, Councillor Steve Waltho, was also among the guests when an open day was held at BodyKraft's new Fastrack centre.

BodyKraft has invested £250,000 in the new state-of-the-art accident facility which has created 12 new jobs.

The new 6,202 sq ft centre at Second Avenue on the Pensnett Trading Estate opened for business on February 8.

BodyKraft also has sites at Canal Street, Merry Hill, Brierley Hill and Drayton Street, Wolverhampton.

The accident repair business, which was launched in 1998 with eight workers, has grown to employ 90 across its sites and has just become a member of the Black Country Chamber of Commerce's patron group.

BodyKraft, which was founded in 1998, has West Midlands Police and Wolverhampton-based Carillion among its customers and also carries out fleet work and light commercial vehicle repairs.

The new service will focus on minor body repairs and through latest technology, will accelerate the spraying and drying of customers' vehicles to just five minutes – helped by a £78,000 moveable spray booth and UV infrared drying system – the only technology of its type in the region. It will handle up to 12 vehicles per day.
