In April 2021 we deployed a Wheel Pod and 6 technicians at Wyton de-fleet centre in Cambridgeshire. In May we complemented this with two other Wheel Pod locations in Cheshire and Trafford Park.
In October 2020, we expanded further into even bigger premises at our Adlington HQ, ensuring service, support and access to body repair are still under one roof.
Having heavily invested funding and research into the business, we created and deployed the UK's first custom made on-site Wheel Pod, designed and developed to offer large volume wheel refurbishment and repair to trade customers across the UK.
A second MADE SMARTER grant helped further develop software solutions to enable the digitisation of Wheel Pods and vans to allow operational efficiency and productivity to be monitored via the cloud irrespective of geographical obstacles.
Due to our innovative approach to business development and growth, we were awarded a MADE SMARTER grant, this was closely followed by a research and development project with Sheffield-based AMRC. We invested in technologies to digitise workflow processes specifically for the wheel repair market.
By October 2017 we moved into premises in Adlington focussing on powder coasting and static lathe technology. We quickly outgrew the unit due to unprecedented customer demand and developed the first customer-made van entirely to DA Techs' workshop specification.
From the initial concept in April 2016, to the creation of the UK's first mobile diamond-cut van and a team of two technicians.
