The first contract will operate from Toyota’s vehicle import centre at Portbury and the second from its vehicle distribution centre in Burnaston.
The two-year contracts will see Walon carry out the handling and enhancement of approximately 149,000 new Toyota and Lexus vehicles each year.
“We are delighted to have signed these two major contracts,” said Tim Harms, technical services director at Walon. “Toyota will be introducing a number of new models during the contract period and they have set a number of challenging targets and we are committed to ensuring we exceed their expectation.”
Walon, which is part of the AutoLogic Group, has a team of over 130 dedicated technical service technicians based at the two operations.
The teams carry out a complete range of vehicle enhancements and dealer fit requests, from the basic addition of model badges and the fitting of leather seats, through to the complex installation of Sat Nav and in car entertainment systems, such as DVD’s.
Walon has also introduced a number of new IT initiatives onto the contracts, such as new workshop control systems, which will help increase efficiency further.
