Husband and wife led team scoop coveted award at Greater Manchester Business Awards


A husband and wife led team, specialising in mobile vehicle bodywork repairs are celebrating their success as they are recognised as Small Business of the Year in Greater Manchester.

Dan and Natalie Normanton and their team at SMART vehicle repair specialists, Revive! Trafford, left the prestigious Greater Manchester Business Awards with the distinguished accolade which celebrates businesses with 5-10 employees.

The awards ceremony, which took place at the Hotel Brooklyn in Manchester on Friday 2 September, celebrated all the achievements of businesses in the Greater Manchester area over the past year.

Revive! Trafford covers most of the Greater Manchester area, offering customers a convenient and affordable alternative to conventional body shops with their mobile cosmetic vehicle repair service.

The firm’s excellent customer service was recognised this year by almost 400 five-star reviews on Trustpilot. However, the team's most impressive achievement was their growth within the car dealership sector, with sales improving by 50 per cent thanks to some fantastic partnerships cultivated by the couple with local dealers.

Dan and Natalie launched their Trafford business, as part of the Revive! franchise network, in 2007. Since then, the couple have grown the business and now employ seven technicians with plans to expand further before the end of 2023.

Revive! Trafford Franchise Owner, Natalie Normanton, commented: “We pride ourselves on putting our customers first and I’m glad the team can now add this accolade to the mantlepiece. Winning this award is a testament to all the hard work our team have put in over the past year, it is fully deserved. I’m looking forward to seeing what we can push onto next.”

Mark Llewellyn, Managing Director of Revive! UK Ltd, had nothing but praise for the husband and wife owners: “Dan and Natalie started this business many years ago with Dan as the only technician. Since then they have built the business into what it is today by establishing a strong and reliable reputation in and around Manchester. I’m glad that their success has been duly recognised and I’m sure their ambitions will help them achieve further success in the future!”
