Leicester to benefit from two new ATF lanes17 January 2012

Alltruck has invested £300,000 in building two ATF (Authorised Testing Facility) MOT lanes, in its existing Leicester workshop.

The first lane opened at the beginning of January, and the second is due to commence operation in the coming months. Alltruck's finance director Debbie Halliday says it comes on the back of an anticipated closure of the Leicester VOSA testing facility.

Alltruck's own fleet will occupy about one third of the capacity of one ATF lane, with the remaining capacity for third-party work. The company says it hopes to add further value and service to customers coming to the ATF lane by using its workshop facility to support vehicle preparation.

"The benefits for Alltruck are two-fold," explains Halliday. "Firstly, we will protect our own fleet and costs, given the proposed closure of the Leicester test station. We can now guarantee the slots for our own fleet and save time and money by not having to travel to an external testing facility.

"Secondly, we see an opportunity to further enhance the service that we can offer to external customers," she adds.

"The development of our workshop facilities are key to our growth plans for the next three years and we believe that the addition of the ATF lanes at Leicester will contribute to the this growth."
