One of the leading motor equipment suppliers, Gott Technical Services, are accelerating its growth targets after securing a major contract in London.
It has secured a substantial order from national motor retailer Vertu Motors to supply and install two Trademaster MoT automated test lanes and 13 Rotary two-postvehicle lifts for Vauxhall’s very first new look brand centre based in the capital.
Alongside its national expansion, Gott has also recently received regional orders for garage equipment in the North East from Northumbria Police and Carillion in recent weeks.
The announcement has come at the same time as a recent report from the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) found that 48% of its members had experienced a drop in orders in the last six months.
Gott Technical Services Sales and Marketing Director Ian Gott said: “It’s encouraging to see growth for the company in 2012 already and great start to our financial year, due to our clients starting to spend again. We seem to be bucking the trend compared to a lot of other small businesses in the region.
“The order from Vertu Motors is a great triumph for us; demonstrating our ability to successfully compete against other equipment suppliers nationwide for major contracts.”
The state of the art equipment will be installed in a modern, purpose-built service facility of more than 2000 square metres of floorspace, set across two floors in Chingford, North London.
Purchasing Director at Vertu Motors Elaine Cole said: “We sell and service the full Vauxhall range out of our new Vauxhall Brand Centre, including the performance range and electric models, so it was imperative that we partnered with a supplier who could provide high quality equipment on budget and in a timely manner, as such Gott Technical Services installed the majority of our workshop equipment.
“We use Gott across our Automotive Retail Group for a range of services including workshop equipment maintenance, supply and inspection. Gott are a trusted partner and we look forward to continuing our long term relationship with them.”
The company currently has more than 500 active clients from small garages to large multi-site motor retail groups. It also operates as a consultancy in the public transport, haulage, local government and emergency service sectors, and employs 20 staff in Morpeth and across its territories.
