United Kingdom : TIP branches get sanction to be WABCO service partners [TendersInfo (India)]Al Bawaba Ltd.
Five TIP Trailer Services branches have become completely sanctioned WABCO Service Partners in the UK after a big training programme. In future this agreement among the two companies is possibly to be widened through other TIP regional operations within Europe.
The extensive WABCO Service Partner network of over 2000 approved Service Partners worldwide includes TIP s branches in Manchester, Newcastle, Nuneaton, Felixstowe and Grays. These branches assist WABCO s enduring participation in the commercial vehicle industry.
As per Karl Davies, Services and Marketing Director, TIP Trailer Services, This development is part of an emerging relationship with WABCO that goes back five years and marks a long term partnership between the two companies that upskills the technical services available from TIP to its customers and forms part of our planned ongoing staff training programme. Trailer braking systems have developed substantially in recent years and the need to keep up to speed on new technology is essential, especially in relation to the current changes and effects of whole vehicle type approval.
All technicians at the five TIP branches have completed their official formal training programs undertaken by WABCO and organised by TIP s UK Maintenance Leader Dave Parr.
Simon Cage, UK Aftermarket and Trailer Manager at WABCO Automotive UK Ltd said, We welcome the inclusion of five professional TIP workshops to our network of high-class WABCO Service Partners. We are constantly seeking to improve the service standard of our network and this tie-up with TIP s efforts to establish a professional trailer service on complex braking technology to UK fleets is a large step forward.
The planned rollout of the WABCO Service Partner agreement across TIP s European operations will be a main project for both organizations as TIP Trailer Services has enduring maintenance contracts with several large fleets with pan-European operations.
Davies concluded that In recent years, TIP has developed into a fully integrated maintenance services company and, to maintain our market leading position, we need to widen the range of skills available to customers. By working closely with companies such as WABCO, this differentiates TIP from all other trailer service companies. It enables us to enhance our customer service proposition by offering the most comprehensive range of maintenance support programmes currently available from any provider .
