The History of Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists
Mr. Thomas Morris founded Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists, Inc in 2001. He became aware of this rapidly developing new market as his company at that time marketed paint, dent, and interior repair Franchises. Dealerships began to ask if our company could repair damaged alloy wheels incurred by curb damage. There was not a quick solution at that time as the only alternative was to ship the wheels to a shop. This required the dealer to dismount and ship the damaged wheel. The turnaround time could take three to five days at a considerable cost, not to mention the inconvenience and down time. Recognizing a huge opportunity, AWRS developed a system which gives the operator the ability to repair a wheel on-site at any location and in any climate condition, and in some cases, even without removing the wheel from the car.
AWRS quickly grew and instantly was recognized as the leader in this new industry. Initially, AWRS sold licenses and converted to franchising in 2004. This ensured uniformity, which allowed the company to partner with such national organizations as Car Max, Auto Nation, State Farm, Progressive Insurance, Discount Tire, Hertz, and Avis.
On a regular basis, AWRS and its franchisees sought to upgrade their equipment and processes. As manufacturers change their styles and colors. AWRS corporate personnel quickly capture these new paint codes to keep its network up to date. In 2005, a mobile wheel straightening system, known as "The New Bee," was developed to enable the operator to straighten severely "out of round" wheels while the tire remains only partially separated from the bead. This invention was later patented and allowed our network to offer safe and precise on-site wheel straightening. This has become a significant portion of its revenue. In 2006, several franchisees opened remanufacturing plants. These plants provide enhanced solutions to address damaged wheels cracked or leaking air. AWRS became – and remains – the only complete mobile and remanufacturing solution.
