Nationwide fast-fit chain ATS Euromaster says it is on target to increase the number of â€¨centres performing MOTs by 20% to 100 centres before the end of 2010,â€¨ with a similar increase planned for 2011.
The drive to install new MOT test bays is part of a strategic move to offer additional service, maintenance and repair facilities for the fleetâ€¨ sector and private motorists.
Huw Williams, marketing director at ATS Euromaster, said: “Expanding â€¨our MOT coverage is a natural step forward for the business.Â The increase inâ€¨ the number of company vehicles being kept beyond three years means many moreâ€¨ businesses are now requiring MOTs for their fleet.â€¨â€¨”
The growth of the MOT side of the business comes after a significant investment this yearâ€¨ and the introduction of Bosch diagnostic equipment across theÂ network.
ATS has also introduced air-conditioning servicing at 11 of itsâ€¨centres on a trial basis in 2010.Â If it proves popular, it will beâ€¨ rolled out across the network during 2011.
