MIDAS Mackay the latest addition to growing national network
MIDAS Mackay was officially opened on January 19 by Federal Member for Dawson, George Christensen and has become the latest addition to the company's expanding network.
Flanked by Midas Mackay franchisees and well-known Mackay automotive repair specialists, Brendon and Faith Lett, the Mackay born Mr Christensen had the honour of cutting the ceremonial opening ribbon to this modern, conveniently located and well equipped Midas store.
Mr Christensen, who also resides in Mackay, took the time to discuss
issues relating to the automotive repair and servicing industry during
These included the Mandatory Data Sharing Code draft legislation, gaining Brendon and Faith’s insights on how important this legislation is to independent repairers such as them along with the entire Midas Auto Care store network.
Once this legislation is passed by Federal Parliament, vehicle manufacturers will be legally bound to share vehicle repair and servicing data with independent repairers on fair and equal terms, ensuring a major win-win scenario for repairers, but more importantly for consumers.
The Letts’ also used this opportunity to raise their concerns about the number of unroadworthy cars on Queensland’s roads.
To this end, they discussed the implementation of regular roadworthy inspections for the state directly with Mr Christensen.
They, along with all at Midas, believe that regular roadworthy inspections will not only make our roads safer for everyone to drive on, but this can also create more automotive industry jobs in the sunshine state and across the country.
