Last month marked a milestone for JJ Performance Smash Repairs in Bargo, as they won the inaugural Champion Automotive Smash Repairs award at the 2023 Australian Trades Small Business Champion Awards. Jason Legg, the company's director, proudly accepted the customised trophy and certificate at the Western Sydney Conference Centre event. With 34 years in business, the award is more than just a trophy; it's a recognition of persistent quality and community service. Remaining a family-run business, JJ Performance focuses on safety and quality over mass production, setting it apart from larger competitors. Jason Legg’s vision is not just business-centric; it's community-centric. The company supports local charities and sports teams, showcasing that being smaller can sometimes mean being closer to the community's heart. The awards had 1,000 entries, yet JJ Performance stood out. The honour echoes the resilience of small businesses in tough times and serves as an encouragement for future apprentices in the field of auto mechanics. This win solidifies the company's position as not just a local service provider but a nationally-recognised industry leader, committed to both their craft and their community.
