For over 20 years, SMARTFIX have been designing innovative equipment and systems, supplying companies in a variety of industries, all over the world.

It all started with a SMART repair business. While running his own franchise, founder Matt Wortley began to develop new alloy wheel repair techniques to make the job easier and more efficient. After travelling the world and discovering that nobody else was offering the same services, Matt saw a gap in the market and set up SMARTFIX with business partner Richard Wheeler in 2001.



Since then, SMARTFIX has supplied workshops and mobile businesses with equipment for alloy wheel repair, bodywork paint repair, paintless dent removal and more. Our signature SMARTvan comes with everything you need to run a mobile SMART repair service.

But the story doesn’t end there. Our unique ‘plug and go’ spraybooths are used by manufacturers, schools and universities, government bodies and more, in Europe, Australia, North America and the Middle East. SMARTFIX technology has been adopted by the world’s leading museum of art and modern design, a global razor manufacturer and Formula One teams, to name but a few.
