THE owners of a paint repair business have picked up a top national award.

Owners of Revive! Basingstoke, Michal Lepiarz and Irmina Kowalski, are celebrating after winning a national award for their business growth at a conference held by the UK’s largest network of accredited smart repairers at the England football teams training centre, St George’s Park.

Irmina and Michal were presented with the Developer Gold Award by Revive! UK managing director Mark Llewellyn in recognition of their business growth during 2018.

The pair set up the paint repair business five years ago and now employ two technicians at its Knights Park Road base.

Revive! franchisees meet up once a year to review the network’s performance over the previous twelve months and hear Revive!’s future plans.

They received a trophy, bottle of champagne and a UV drying lamp.

Irmina said: “We’re delighted to win this award. We have a great team here and all pull together to make sure our customers get the best possible service.”

Revive! managing director Mr Llewellyn added: “This year was our 15th conference and we had a lot to celebrate.

“The network has had a bumper year and we congratulate Irmina, Michal and their team for outstanding business growth.”

The company specialises in minor car bodywork repairs.
