Fully approved IMI Centre
Leather lovers… If our reputation didn’t fill you with enough confidence,
And, if the pictures and end results of our work didn’t sell our services,
Then the fact we are the only IMI approved centre for Leather repairs in the whole country should!
IMI is the INSTITUTE of the MOTOR INDUSTRY and is the governing body for training within the motor trade. Formed back in 1920 a handful of members of the fledgling motor industry got together over dinner to talk about business and the best way to serve their customers. From this informal setting the foundations of today’s Institute of the Motor Industry were laid. The intention, to have all technicians in the industry to an acceptable standard across the board.
IMI Quality Assured programmes are designed for organisations who offer, or are looking to offer, training within the automotive sector. These include further education colleges, training providers, vehicle manufacturers and employers including retail dealership groups.
Leather Repair Company are extremely proud of their skills and history surrounding them, we also love parting our wisdom on other enthusiastic individuals. The work we do with leather is an art form, a true, old school skill that is unfortunately fading away so to find people who want to carry on these skills gets us very excited!! But to ensure those skills are to the very highest of standards we wanted to become part of the standardised, recognised body that is designed to instill confidence in customers and we can therefore wear our accreditation “badge” with pride!!
Criteria for approval
To offer IMI Quality Assured Programmes a company must be an IMI Awards approved centre. Before approving a centre or programme IMI Awards will carry out a rigorous approval process.
In addition to being an approved centre:
This criteria is not just bragging rights, it also confirms to us our belief in what we do is justified, When you are looking for a company to work on your leather, do you want somebody who is unregulated, that has no approval from an ethical body such as IMI & somebody who doesn’t go the extra mile to reassure its valued customers of their competence.
Or do you want the company that is qualified to duplicate, replicate and pass on our exacting skills and standards to anybody else wishing to learn?
Sold yet? of course you are!
