Solus, a wholly-owned subsidiary of insurer, Aviva, is opening a new vehicle damage repair centre in Exeter.

The new centre is the first in the South West, complementing the existing network of repair centres across the UK. The opening of Exeter Solus is a continuation of Aviva’s strategy to support its motor insurance customers by increasing the number of motor claims managed from start to finish.

Located at Sowton Industrial Estate, the 20,000 ft2 site will create 24 jobs, ranging from vehicle technicians and consultants to customer care roles.

Solus - the nationwide network of vehicle damage repair centres - repairs and manages the loss of vehicles after a driving accident or incident, managing over a third of Aviva’s overall motor damage claims.

Solus is also opening new repair centres in Sunderland and Sheffield to complement the existing 22 Solus sites across the UK.

The Solus Exeter site will incorporate the latest vehicle technology and be fitted with solar panels.   

 The repair centre is expected to be open and operational later in the year.

Simon Smith, Managing Director at Solus, comments: “It’s an exciting time for our business and we are extremely proud to open our new branch in Exeter.  By opening this centre, we can continue delivering great outcomes for our customers, helping them to get back behind the wheel as quickly and as safely as possible.”
