Dalkeith councillor Margot Russell (Lab) has officiall re-opened the Kwik Fit Centre in Croft Street, Dalkeith.
The centre has been fully refurbished from the garage floor up and was chosen for this investment from Kwik Fit’s UK network of more than 600 centres because of the commitment the staff have made in serving the local community.
The reception area has been completely redesigned and the centre now has specialist laser wheel alignment equipment. The revamped centre will also continue to offer the full range of Kwik Fit services including tyres, exhausts, brakes, MoT testing, car servicing, air-con and windscreen repair.
Councillor Russell said: “The investment that Kwik Fit has poured into the local centre is very good news for Dalkeith and its motorists. The town is very fortunate that the company selected the branch for refurbishment with all the latest technology and equipment over hundreds of others.
“It’s commendable that there’s an apprenticeship scheme in place to give young people a helping hand by creating jobs and giving them some valuable career skills. I hope young people in Dalkeith will see the benefit and apply for the programme.”
Dalkeith centre manager Mikey McClay said: “It’s given the staff a real boost that our hard work has been recognised, and that our centre has been given major investment. All the team at Dalkeith branch take great pride in our work and now we have a working environment that matches our ambition to deliver the best possible service.”
