Halfords Autocentre has invested £1 million in new fault-finding diagnostic equipment to further aid its 300-garage network’s ability to service and repair any vehicle.
The firm has entered into a five-year license agreement with Bosch for its KTS570 model of diagnostic equipment, which will roll-out across the majority of the Autocentre network from November 3 alongside new tablet computers running ESI-tronic software, to deliver more accurate fault diagnosis.
A proportion of the busiest garages - those handling a high volume of fleet business - will instead benefit from new ‘Launch’ branded engine diagnostic equipment.
Technical training manager Satnam Singh said: “Like all technology, engine diagnostic equipment has a shelf life and it is essential to keep abreast of vehicle and software changes in order to effectively identify and resolve faults first time.
“These high specification units have their respective strengths and will be deployed strategically to provide our expert technicians with the most appropriate tool for the job - minimising the time that vehicles spend off the road for our customers whilst also increasing our capacity.”
