National Windscreens is celebrating its growth after the number of repairs and replacements completed grew to 444% over the past decade.
The windscreen replacement specialist is now creating even more jobs throughout the UK. The recruitment drive will call for technicians and engineers to help fuel future growth.
National Windscreens’ managing director Pete Marsden (pictured) said: “These figures pay testament to the fact we are now the autoglazing repair or replacement provider of choice for many of the UK’s largest insurers and fleet operators.
“The fact we enjoy sole supplier status with so many insurers and fleet operators has led to this massive growth.”
The company recently invested over £2 million in its UK-wide network of fitting calibration centres to offer a service for calibration of advanced drive assistance systems (ADAS), and has opened eight in the past 12 months.
“These new centres show the company’s commitment to maintaining a truly national network of fitting and calibration centres," said Marsden.
"This means that windscreen replacement and calibration can be undertaken during the same visit and means that, on average, a UK motorist will be only 11 miles or 20 minutes away from a technician.
“By 2020, it is predicted that 40% of vehicles on UK roads will have ADAS fitted as standard and this informed our decision to invest in centres that provide repair, replacement and calibration all under one roof, supported by 800 mobile units, with technicians appropriately trained and certified.
“Our on-going educational campaign to raise awareness of what ADAS is and the implications that calibration has for insurers, fleet operators and motorists – from costs to safety – is paying dividends as more and more companies turn to us for a service they can trust to deliver on these critical issues.
“But the trust on which this growth is built also comes from a total commitment to quality from ISO27001 accreditation for our information security management system (ISMS) to ISO9001 certified quality systems.”
