Bott prepare for the future
2 Minute Read
Since its opening in 1998, Bott’s Midlands based vehicle conversion centre has seen significant year-on-year growth in order to expand capacity, improve productivity and cope with increasing demand.
With more and more companies turning to blended fleets, as the UK aims to bring emissions to net zero by 2050, there has been an increasing need for a designated e-vehicle workspace.
On October 22nd 2019, Bott proudly opened a brand new, £1m extension to their vehicle conversion site in Ashby de la Zouch. The new, state-of-the-art facility provides 3 new PDI bays, set up for work on electric vehicles, as well as 25 additional conversion bays, making a total of 80 conversion bays available at the newly expanded site.
The new extension provides for Bott to manage larger contracts for electric vehicles, through segregating them from other work, to allow access only to appropriately qualified people.
The work was carried out by local building contractors, Regent Developments. After 6 years of working with Bott, they have been pivotal in the growth of the Ashby site – installing multiple workshop and office extensions, roadway improvements, on-site customer vehicle parking for 800 vehicles, and much more.
Speaking of our relationship with Regent Developments, Terry Knot, Bott Site Services Manager explained:
Regent have been working with Bott for over 6 years now. They are a very reliable, family run business, with a great attitude to work. Nothing is too much trouble!
