SimplyFixIt reports best ever figures

A Scottish tech repair business is celebrating 20 years in business with its best ever figures.

SimplyFixIt is marking its anniversary with a £4.2m turnover from its eight business outlets across Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Having grown from just a single shop the business is now looking to further expansion and puts its success down to the boom in consumer technology including smart phones, tablets and laptops.  

Jason Eccles, general manager of the firm, which employs 34 staff, said: “It is fantastic achievement to have reached 20 years in business. I’d like to personally thank every single customer who has come through our doors in that time.

“We have changed a great deal over those 20 years, which is to be expected because the nature of technology is changing all the time.”

The firm also put down a great deal of their success to the repair of Apple products, having carried out over 25,000 repairs last year alone, with 30% being focussed on Apple computers, including the MacBook and iMac.

Jason added: “The Apple stores are excellent and the products are of undoubted quality, but not everyone wants to be completely locked into the Apple system. By offering a real alternative we have enjoyed a very strong stream of business.

 “The sector is buoyant and as a result we are likely to grow further. We are constantly looking for new sites and look at two or three possibilities per month. All I can say at the moment is watch this space.”
