Local students set for Oxford University entry

According to Superlux Automotive director, Luckson Gwara, a full car service should be carried out at least once a year to keep your car maintained correctly. It is important to have a full service carried out. A trained mechanic can spot damage early and prevent further costs by detecting problems on time.

“Quality is our trade mark, you can’t have it better. We restore your damaged vehicle to originality and offer total solutions to your motor body repair needs beyond expectation,” said Gwara. “In the short-to-middle-term run, we want to be the household name in the panel beating industry and our long term plan is to become a one-stop shop for the automotive business as a dealership,” he added.

Superlux Automotive, which is situated in Msasa industrial area, boasts of an array of state-of- the art equipment that includes ‘Aero- Cure combination spray booth and a baking oven’. This piece of equipment allows for an almost dust free environment during painting and provides baking facility, which cures the paint fully and improves on the lead-time. The computerised colour matching service provided by Superlux allows for accurate factory colours such that it is not noticeable when a damaged area has been repaired.

“We also have a Car-O-Liner Chassis straightening jig with dual dozer pneumatic and hydraulic operation to allow for maximum productivity. We strive  to meet manufacturer’s specifications. No work is impossible on this solid piece of equipment. We have artisans trained to operate these top of the range equipment. We also do collision repairs for all types of vehicles up to the size of 3.5 tonne trucks,” he said.

According to Gwara, Superflux Automotive is seriously considering adopting the use of water-based paints. They are much better and more effective than the traditional types of colours.

“Quality workman ship is our trade mark as well as our marketing tool. Our final product is our strength and that has helped us grow in a very short period. We do work for the majority of Insurance companies and we continue to be included on several companies as a preferred service provider. We provide our best to those expecting the best,” he said. “Within our well-trained staff compliment, we also boast of a female employee who holds a Class 1 Artisanship. She is in the spray-painting department. We believe in equal job opportunities based on merit.  We take the responsibility of training for the industry; hence, we attach students from different colleges as well as government institutions.”

Superflux Automotive is a member of the Motor Industry Association Of Zimbabwe and the panel- beating section is currently chaired by Gwara.

Gwara has more than 20 years experience in the motor industry, specialising in panel-beating. He was trained by the local Mercedes Benz dealership as a panel-beater and later rose through the corporate ladder to junior management level. He started a panel-beating workshop for one of the Nissan dealerships, before he went into consultancy for panel-beaters in  Zimbabwe and Zambia, where he realised the long-awaited dream of starting his own business.
