£500,000 investment in workshop facilities to maintain our specialist fleet
We have recently invested £500,000 in our workshop facilities at Bamber Bridge to maintain our specialist fleet for United Utilities. Five technicians will work on a 24/7/365 basis servicing our fleet to ensure it is well maintained to deliver our critical maintenance activities.
The investment includes the latest equipment and technology that will enable us to maintain and repair any make, type or model of truck or van. Our experienced technicians are now able to diagnose faults quickly ensuring that vehicles are returned to service at the earliest opportunity. Newly installed tv screens within the workshop display live schedules enabling the team to manage work efficiently with jobs being issued to the technicians electronically through their tablets.
With our investment already exceeding £3m this year for new fleet and plant, and the upcoming investment of £20m in the next 3 years, the workshops will play a vital role in ensuring our fleet is maintained to the highest standard.
