Established in 1971, Kwik Fit was the first company to provide a branded alternative to local independent garages and dealerships.
We are now the European market leader in fast fit automotive services – predominantly through our networks in the United Kingdom and The Netherlands.
As experts in automotive parts repair - including tyres, brakes, exhausts, MOT testing, car servicing, air conditioning recharge and windscreen repair – Kwik Fit look after nearly 10 million customers in over 1,000 centres helping to keep them on the road.
Following the strategic decision by the Itochu Corporation - Kwik Fit’s owners – to develop all its expansion activity under the Kwik Fit brand name, we have ambitious plans to expand across Europe over the next few years. Our ultimate Vision is to become the largest tyre and automotive parts repair network in the world through high profile franchised Kwik Fit centres.
