Workbenches - more than just storing tools
Today, modern vehicle workshops consider a workstation as a fundamental part of a workshop. While the primary purpose is functional; providing a sufficient surface to work on, storing necessary tools and equipment easily on hand for a technician to get the job done, within the work bay. We have a range of stand alone workbenches available here. However, the workstation offers so much more. This ‘fitted kitchen’ approach offers a co-ordinated look to a workshop and supplies the technician with the efficiency of everything to hand, job satisfaction and output can increase.
