New fitting and calibration centre opens in Bangor as part of expansion
A new National Windscreens fitting and calibration centre
has opened its doors in Bangor as the UK’s largest independently owned
windscreen repair and replacement company continues expansion of its business
in North Wales.
Bangor is part of a £2 million investment that has helped,
it is claimed, establish National Windscreens as a global leader in meeting the
rising demand for calibration of windscreen mounted cameras that form part of
the advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) increasingly fitted in vehicles.
The opening of Bangor on the Llandygai Industrial Estate has
created four new jobs to date.
Pete Marsden, managing director at National Windscreens, said:
“With predictions that 40% of all vehicles will have ADAS fitted as standard by
2020 and with the majority of manufacturers stating calibration work is best
carried out in workshop conditions, this opening further confirms our
commitment to retaining a UK-wide network of 108 fitting and calibration
centres supported by 800 mobile technicians.
“This means that windscreen replacement and calibration can
be undertaken during the same visit and means that, on average, a UK motorist
will be only 11 miles or 20 minutes away from a technician.”
