National Windscreens continues expansion in Scotland
National Windscreens has opened a new fitting and calibration centre in Kilmarnock as it continues its expansion in Scotland.
Located centrally in Glencairn Industrial Estate, the purpose-designed facility will enable windscreen replacement and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) calibration services to be carried out, simultaneously.
Andy Rae, regional operations director at National Windscreens, said: “We’re thrilled to be opening our ninth fitting centre in Scotland and we have more planned for the future. The expansion is due to the significant growth of ADAS technology, leading to an increase in the number of cars that require calibrating. All the technicians working at the new Kilmarnock fitting centre are IMI Qualified in ADAS and Automotive Glazing.”
The firm now offers 108 fitting and calibration centres in the UK and has recently invested more than £3m in equipment and training in ADAS calibration to ensure drivers need just one visit for windscreen replacement and calibration. It’s also planning for further ADAS investment in line with predictions that by 2020, more than 40% of new vehicles will have at least two types of driver-assisted system fitted.
