Fixation was created in 1988 as a Nikon Service Centre, dedicated to the needs of the professional photographer, offering high quality, reliable repairs with very fast turnaround.
News of this valuable professional resource quickly spread throughout journalistic, sports and other areas of professional imaging, and Fixation was soon appointed an Official Nikon Service Centre. As the company's reputation grew, Canon approached Fixation to ask if we could offer the same level of service to Canon users, but it was not until 1996 that we felt our team had reached a stage where we could take on another brand without compromising our quality and service. At that stage, Fixation was appointed the only UK "Canon Professional Service Centre" other than Canon's own workshop at Neasden.
In the meantime, we had gradually become an important dealer for Nikon product, offering knowledgeable pre-sales advice with our unique technical slant and understanding of the pressures under which professionals have to work. When Nikon appointed a select group of dealers as "Professional System Specialists", Fixation was the first dealer to be invited to sign up. In 1998, Fixation was also appointed a Professional Canon Eos Dealer.
Fixation was the brain-child of Mike Allen, previously Service Manager for Nikon UK and then for Keith Johnson Photographic (KJP), whose 30+ years of working on Nikon product make him the most experienced UK technician on Nikon F, F2 and Nikkormat series cameras. Mike was responsible for setting up Nikon's professional service facilities at major sporting events in the early 1970's such as Wimbledon, The British Open Golf and Formula 1 Grand Prix. His existing reputation with professionals for understanding and innovation, and his perception of the need for a dedicated service for them, persuaded him to start his own business in June 1988. The name "Fixation" was chosen to give customers an idea of our obsession with getting the job right!
Fixation delivers expertise with efficiency, and it is this unrivalled service that Nikon has come to rely upon over the years. We are pleased to recommend Fixation to our most important customers.
