ATS Euromaster Opens Galashiels Centre
ATS Euromaster opened a new “flagship fast-fit centre” in Huddersfield Street, Galashiels, following investment of more than £800,000. The new centre, which opened in May, is located 200 yards from the previous site, which is being demolished to make way for the A7 trunk road extension.
Situated directly opposite the Gala Water Retail Park, the new facility boasts five vehicle work bays, including one dedicated to commercial vehicles, and is equipped to provide a complete range of fast-fit services for motorists including tyres, brakes, batteries, shock absorbers, exhausts and oil. Open six days a week, it is manned by a team of six highly skilled technicians.
Tony Culbertson, manager of ATS Euromaster in Galashiels – one of 460 ATS Euromaster centres around the UK – said: “We haven’t moved very far, but in terms of facilities for our technicians and customers, the new centre is a world apart. It’s fully kitted out with the latest garage equipment and makes Galashiels the most modern ATS Euromaster centre in the network.”
ATS Euromaster has been represented in the town since 1970, with the project to develop the new centre beginning in 2007 and being partly funded by Scottish Borders Council. Construction began in October 2008.
