Eastern Western Accident Repair Centre
The Eastern Western Motor Group, established since 1927, are proud to be Scotland’s leading privately owned dealer group and are delighted to announce the opening of their brand new, award winning, state of the art, 47,000 square foot, accident repair and PDI (Pre Delivery Inspection) centre at Broxburn, West Lothian. We are pleased to announce that we are the manufacturer approved repair centre for all of the Groups top marques. Equipment levels within the new facility are of the highest standard and have been installed to help reduce the time our customers’ vehicles are off the road ensuring the whole accident repair experience causes as minimal inconvenience as possible.
Our Smart Repair Booth is used to repair vehicles that have endured small-scale localised damage to areas such as bumpers, trims, windscreens and alloy wheels. This service ensures a quick, one-day turnaround, avoiding the full body shop process and provides localised repair work to between 6 – 8 vehicles a day with the help of 4 highly trained technicians.
The workshop accounts for 35,000 square feet of the total building space within the Groups' Accident Repair Centre at Broxburn. It provides equipment and facilities of the highest standard, all installed to help reduce the length of time your car is off the road, and to make the whole Accident Repair Centre experience a better one for you.
The workshop is manned by 30 highly trained technicians who deal with repairs on up to 150 vehicles per week, utilising some of the highly impressive new equipment including a 3 bay Korek global jig, 2 separated aluminium welding bays, the latest Invertor welding equipment and computerised measuring systems. These help ensure the accident repair process is carried out to the highest standards, set by the strict manufacturer guidelines, and in the most time-efficient manner.
A prominent inclusion within the new Accident Repair Centre is that of 3 state of the art drive through spray ovens, provided by USI Italia, one of the world’s leading spray booth manufacturers.
Using direct drive motors and blower systems these ovens ensure drying time is improved by up to 50% whilst still providing optimum drying to manufacturers specifications. The system directs high volume, filtered and heated air vertically through the booths. This, combined with either programmed exhausted or recirculated air cycles, provides the most efficient way to cure paint, holding down energy costs and improving throughput. The USI spray booths can be used to colour anything from entire vehicles to small individual vehicle parts.
In addition to the 3 spray ovens we also have a mixing room, with dedicated colourist, where colour can be matched by computer formulation set by the manufacturers.
