Experts at a Morpeth-based garage equipment supplier have given a car dealership firm a helping hand with a trio of projects.
Gott Technical Services was commissioned to carry out works on Vertu’s Bristol Street Motors dealerships in County Durham, Newcastle and North Tyneside.
As part of the re-development of its Durham Ford dealership, Bristol Street Motors required a temporary workshop to be set up on-site while essential roof repairs and refurbishments could take place at the existing location.
The Morpeth firm’s engineers were able to move and re-install the equipment between facilities in order to keep the dealership’s service department trading throughout the works period.
Within this project, Gott also supplied and installed a new Automated Test Lane and some additional two-post lifts.
A couple of months earlier, the former Audi site on Scotswood Road was transformed into a Bristol Street Motors Fiat, Alfa Romeo and Jeep dealership following Vertu’s acquisition and the Infiniti Centre Newcastle opened its doors at the Silverlink Business Park – it previously operated as a Honda site.
Gott’s role included inspecting and certifying existing equipment and supplying the equipment and tooling required to re-open the MOT bay and meet the requirements of the vehicle manufacturers.
Director Ian Gott said: “It has been a privilege to work with Vertu Motors on a number of its exciting projects recently, including its prestigious Infiniti Centre development and providing a pop-up workshop while works were being carried out at its Durham Ford dealership.”
