Totalkare extends Geesinknorba relationship with mobile brake tester install

One of the UK’s leading waste management specialists is extending its relationship with Totalkare by investing in the latest mobile brake testing technology.

Geesinknorba Group, which operates workshops across the UK, has been working with the lifting specialist for more than a decade, primarily sourcing all of its mobile column lifts from the Halesowen-based firm.

Impressed by the quality of product and service provision, the company decided that it would turn to Totalkare again, this time for help in reducing the costs it was experiencing when testing the brakes on all of the council vehicles it manages.

“We build a lot of our business on long-standing customer relationships, whereby we listen to the client, understand the issues it is facing and then look at our product mix and where we can add real value,” commented Brian Young, National Account Manager for Totalkare.

“This is exactly what we’ve done with Geesinknorba, installing our mobile brake tester at its workshop on Buntingford Business Park in Hertfordshire. Immediately, this has stopped the firm having to drive vehicles to an external contractor to complete all of the tests.”

He continued: “Being mobile, it gives the client complete flexibility in its facility and no infrastructure work was required. Importantly, completing the tests on site also means the fitters have more time to focus on their core roles.

“It’s a win-win for Geesinknorba…it can offer a more efficient service, has cut lead times and saved costs, all with one investment.”

Totalkare introduced its first non-lifting product to its portfolio at the CV Show last year, launching its technically advanced mobile and in-ground brake testers, viewed by many experts as being amongst the strongest and most reliable systems currently available.

These were supported with the appointments of two sector specialists in Graham Simmons and Luke Simmons.

Brian concluded: “It certainly proved a wise decision. Our sales targets for the first twelve months were surpassed in just 100 days and our systems are installed and currently being used in the bus and coach, commercial vehicle and waste and recycling sectors, along with several local authorities – ably supported by our nationwide team of field service engineers.

“We have had lots of positive comments from current users, including Endurance Vehicle Solutions, B&M Waste Services, Dennis Eagle and Endeavour Coaches.”
