On UK-based company is preparing for the ‘uncertainties ahead’ brought about by the pandemic and by Brexit. Absolute Alignment is preparing for the end of the transition period end by increasing stock in order to ensure customers have an uninterrupted service.
The Farnborough based outfit has doubled its amount of storage space for stock, employed further members of staff, and is preparing for possible delays in the supply chain by increasing the number of wheel aligners that will be readily available to customers in early 2021. The firm says that despite the pandemic, the demand for its wheel alignment equipment is higher than ever, making 2020 a ‘record year’ for the company.
Chris Dear, Absolute Alignment’s Technical Director, said, “We have been extremely busy all year. With demand still on the rise, we are increasing our stock levels to ensure we can deliver for all of our customers throughout the winter – including during the second wave of the pandemic and amid the uncertainty that Brexit is likely to bring with it in January.”
This is not the first time that the company has stockpiled. In early 2019, ahead of the original EU exit deadline it tripled stockholding.
