Oliver secured a £50k investment from Dragons’ Den star Kelly Hoppen in 2014.

He later bought the shares back from Hoppen, and saw the company grow exponentially after receiving a six-figure investment from the founders of Onecom in 2017.

The company is on target to have 51 vehicles on the road by the end of the year, serving customers UK-wide.

Darren Ridge, CEO of Onecom, said: ‘We’re delighted that WeFix is to partner with Samsung on an innovative service delivering a new level of value to customers.

‘With fully trained, reliable and trustworthy specialists that deliver a high-standard and convenient mobile service, repairing Samsung devices will be both simple to organise and effective in the long run.’
