Another of our major strengths is that we possess the people who have the skills to install in-vehicle equipment in-house. We install over 3000 units per year, focusing mainly on commercial vehicles, and to achieve this it is important to be familiarized with the many different vehicle structure specifications, and, for vehicles with a prolonged service life such as buses and trucks, accurately store information on any work performed in the past.
