DAF Trucks’ 55th ATF: Norscot Truck & Van Dundee 21 January 2016

Norscot Truck & Van Dundee is the 55th ATF (authorised testing facility) to be accredited by DVSA in the DAF Trucks dealer network – and DAF says more of its 131 dealer sites have already been identified for upgrade to ATF status this year.

Norscot, which also has locations in Aberdeen, Inverness and Perth, invested £300,000 in its new ATF lane and associated equipment.

General manager Ian McGregor says the move comes in response to an increasing number of customers, including local non-DAF operators, requiring more flexibility for their vehicles’ MOT time slots.

“This is about providing a better service to the whole operating community, not just our DAF customers,” states McGregor.

“It’s about maximising uptime, and it’s about driving up standards of safety and efficiency,” he continues.

“Our modern facility here in Dundee offers truck operators significant operational benefits over their existing test facility arrangements, extended testing hours, greater flexibility on booking test slots and reduced travelling time – all the time increasing productivity for operators.”

Norscot’s Dundee site now comprises: five bays, including a 27-metre service pit, individual wheel lifts, individual bay ramps for trucks and vans.

DAF now has more than 1,500 technicians independently certified and certified under the IRTE’s irtec technician accreditation scheme.
