Bio
In 1985 Tom Gallagher founded Fibrenew to offer leather and vinyl repair to customers in Alberta, Canada. Gallagher's brother-in-law Michael Wilson purchased the first franchise in 1987 and then bought the company in 1994. The company continued to expand in Canada, and began opening franchises in New Zealand in 1996 and the U.S. in 1999. Fibrenew franchisees work from home, offering mobile repairs, restoration and re-dyeing of leather, vinyl, plastic, carpet and fabric in automobiles, boats, planes, medical facilities, homes and businesses.
