Automotive family business accelerates ahead to win ‘Best New Bodyshop’ in national automotive awards

A family-owned and run automotive bodyshop business, Colourcube based in Huddersfield has proved its credentials in this year’s national ‘bodyshop Live!’ 2019 Awards to claim the prestigious title of “Best New Bodyshop”.

The annual industry awards were held last month and saw several well-known automotive brands such as Volkswagen and BMW shortlisted for different award categories. Colourcube held their own as the smallest business in attendance to be nominated for an award.

The owners of Colourcube Automotive, husband and wife Mike and Liz Mayes opened their Lepton Bodyshop in 2016 and have continued to lead the business to success ever since. Mike is the Director and Liz the Business Manager, who work alongside two apprentices. Colourcube offers a range of accident repair services such as end of lease refurbishment, alloy wheel refurbishment, dent removal and full resprays. Mike and Liz both deal directly with customers and pride themselves in offering a personal and accessible service.

Colourcube Automotive was shortlisted alongside larger Southern Bodyshop’s, including Alpha Rapid Repair and Artis Accident Care in the Best New Bodyshop category and were thrilled to be announced as their category winners.

Mike explained: “Winning this award has been the icing on the cake for us. Previous Bodyshop’s I’ve worked for have won national awards like this in the past and it’s an honour to now win one ourselves. We’ve earned a great reputation in our local area, so to receive national accreditation and industry recognition is a great achievement.”

Liz and Mike’s future plans are to continue the success they’ve achieved so far by making key investments into their facility, equipment and team members.
