IRS further expands in West Germany

IRS Schliessas

Since 01.08.2020, F. Schließas GmbH & Co. KG located in Viersen has been part of the IRS Group. 

The 20-strong team around the new branch manager Frank Schließas will offer its body and paintservices under the new name “IRS Schließas”.  

In the course of more than 30 years, the family business has developed from a classic craftsman’s business into a service company that offers more than just accident repair. In addition to high-quality bodywork and painting services, Schließas also provides frame straightening, wheel alignment, car glass replacement or repair, smart repair services and much more. Modern workshop equipment and communication processes guarantee short repair times. 

As a member of several councils within the industry Schließas also contributes to the definition of quality standards and the training of qualified specialists. 

A secure future for his highly qualified team was the main reason for Frank Schließas to integrate his company into IRS. “The demands on technology and processes in accident repair are increasing rapidly. We look forward to being part of a strong group in the future. 

“The team around Frank Schließas enjoys an excellent reputation in the industry and is a real enrichment for our group. We are thus further expanding IRS’ strong presence in West Germany,” Frank Gerardy welcomes the new company. 

The IRS Group now has over 140 locations and more than 2200 employees in Germany and Europe. This makes it the European leader in the fields of Smart Repair, body and paint repairs as well as hail damage repair of vehicles 

The IRS network offers all services related to the preparation and repair of vehicle bodies and interiors for used, rental, accident and leasing vehicles.
