PDI support for Proton dealers

Proton Cars (UK) has launched a new in-house pre-delivery inspection (PDI) facility at its head office and parts distribution centre in Avonmouth, Bristol.

The new facility, which includes a full technical workshop and paint shop, will enable Proton to prepare and store vehicles ready for next-day despatch. It will also be used to produce limited edition vehicles.

The 4.5 acre site comprises 100,000 sq. feet of storage which can accommodate up to 250 vehicles under cover plus 14 acres of additional parking nearby.

There is also an on-site training centre, which provides new and existing Proton dealers with technical, product and sales training.

In addition, Proton Cars (UK) has awarded a new contract to CPR transporters, which so far has reduced the time from order to delivery by an average of two to three days.

Brian Collier, managing director of Proton Cars (UK), said: “This is a huge investment designed to bring benefits to our network.

“The new facility will improve our dealer support operation by reducing delivery times and costs for dealers as well as supporting our sales plans for the coming year.”
