our workshop is located at our head office in Mildura and it is just one of the components that make up this state of the art facility truly innovative.
The GTS workshop was custom designed from scratch with much thought and consideration put into achieving optimal productivity. The workshop sets the benchmark in every possible way being OH&S compliant, environmentally efficient, functional and boasts a sizeable capacity.
The design of the workshop, and in particular the elevating work platform, has seen GTS win the " 2007 Work Safe Victoria Award for the Best Designed for Workplace Safety" and the " Blake Dawson Inside OHS Award for 2008", beating finalist entries from Rio Tinto, Sydney Council and Linfox Armaguard.
There are currently five drive through bays dedicated to:
- Tyre replacement and maintenance
- On-floor repairs
- On-floor rebuilds
- Trailer maintenance and repair
- Prime mover servicing/repair (the last two over a fully functional single volume gantry service pit)
On top of all this, GTS has also introduced auto-greasers and synthetic lubricants on all vehicles. As a result service intervals have now been extended to 50,000 kilometers ensuring increased productivity across the entire fleet. All waste lubricants and fluids are now captured on site and recovered by an accredited waste contractor for appropriate disposal, treatment, processing and recycling.
Regular laboratory testing of oil's at service intervals allows GTS to monitor the condition of the oil and provide for and early detection of component failure.
With all of these features in place GTS is able to manage its ongoing fleet requirements and future growth for many years to come.
