Manufacturer VL Test Systems (VLT) is heading to Tip-Ex and Tank-Ex in May with its exciting range of commercial vehicle testing equipment.

From headlight and brake checking systems, through to complete design and installation of a DVSA-approved Authorised Testing Facility (ATF) lane, VLT's stand is the place to head if fleet maintenance is on your priority list.

In addition to a complete design and installation project for your workshop, VLT can also provide full aftersales support for the life of your equipment.

VLT was originally launched in the Netherlands in 1958, with its Buckingham-based UK arm created in 1989 originally to complete the installation of commercial roller brake testers into DVSA testing sites.

It has now expanded to offer a full range of testing equipment and services, including ATF kit, roller brake testers, headlamp beam testers, smoke analysis equipment, MOT equipment, garage brake testers, pit jacks and more.

As well as its long-standing relationship with the DVSA, VLT also has key customers in the likes of Arriva, Scania, Volvo & Stagecoach.

It also works with the Ministry of Defence, servicing brake testers it has installed throughout UK bases, as well as in overseas locations such as Afghan, Canada, Gibraltar and the Falklands.

VLT’s UK manager Brian Beacon is keen to meet with visitors to Harrogate to discuss any aspect of their maintenance needs: “As this is the first time we have exhibited at Tip-Ex and Tank-Ex, we welcome all customers to our stand whether they have questions or just want friendly accurate advice regarding test equipment for their workshop.”

You’ll find VLT on stand C25.

Tip-Ex and Tank-Ex 2020 is the only event dedicated to the bulk haulage sector, taking place from 28-30 May at the Harrogate Convention Centre. It is completely free to attend, so why not register today!
