We are delighted to have recently completed the latest garage project for our long-standing customer Martin Frankland. Martin, who has previously purchased equipment from us for his Westerhope Brake & Clutch business in Westerhope, Newcastle, decided to select us as his supplier of choice for his exciting new business venture West Automotive Ltd, also in Westerhope.
Martin prides himself on providing a reliable, quality service to his customers so choosing the right equipment and service provider was extremely important to him. As soon as Martin told us the new property was available and the groundworks had been prepared we sent a team in to fit out his workshop. A highlight of the new facility is a Class VII Automated Test Lane (ATL) complete with market-leading 6.5 tonne capacity 4 post Rotary lift and Technique combined brake tester, exhaust gas analyser and diesel smoke meter.
As well as having a whopping 6.5 tonne lifting capacity, Martin's MOT lift also has 6 metre long platforms so he is well equipped to handle larger vehicles if he needs to. The lift, combined with heavy duty radius plates, hydraulic wheel play detector, and a Technique headlamp tester mounted in front of it provides easy testing of front end components.
Inclusion of the Technique T8000 range of combined brake tester and headlamp tester has ensured West Automotive is equipped with one of the most advanced test lanes available. As well as a vivid 23" touch-screen display that presents brake and emissions test results, there is a remote control and wireless printing functionality. All in all, Martin's new test bay is one of the smartest around!
Also supplied into the workshop was a combination of Rotary two post lifts and Technique scissor lift, along with Hofmann Megaplan tyre equipment. We know this equipment will provide many years' reliable service and we wish Martin and his team every success in their new venture.
