Since 2001, we have been designing innovative equipment and systems for numerous industries throughout the globe. From small portable spray booths for schools and hospitals, to fully equipped mobile alloy wheel repair workshops.
Joining together the combined experience of over 30 years in the SMART repair industry, Matt Wortley & Richard Wheeler identify the need for a quality, built for purpose solution for the alloy wheel repair industry and form SMARTFIX UK Limited.
We launch our first alloy wheel repair system. Aimed initially at bodyshops looking to make the process of repairing alloy wheels more efficient, the principles of this system are still present in our latest Business Packages.
We launch our innovative SMARTSUKKER portable spray booth. Initially designed for controlling the fumes and overspray when spraying alloy wheels, this is now used by many different industries that require a small but powerful extraction unit for spraying a wide variety of parts and components.
Our first mobile alloy wheel repair installation is built. This is the first of it's kind that allows the complete process to be completed inside the van, with the doors closed.
Wheel repair facility at JLR factory
To create a process that could repair minor imperfections in alloy wheels on brand new vehicles during production required some innovative thinking. The process is carried out in the factory which posed some new challenges concerning Health & Safety compliance. The system we installed included a "walk-in" SMARTbooth and a new UV curing method that allowed the repairs to be completed in under 30 minutes.

We have supplied a number of our freestanding SMARTBOOTH units to the NHS. They are typically used for refurbishment of items such as wheelchairs and prosthetics.The simplicity of our spray units make them particularly suitable for anyone wanting to spray small parts & components in a booth that requires little or no installation.
