New appointment for National Windscreens
National Windscreens has strengthened its senior management team with the appointment of new technical manager Tim Camm.
With 33 years’ experience within the autoglazing sector, including 20 years involvement in technical training and support, Tim will hope to ensure National Windscreens maintains technology leadership as this sector moves through a period of rapid technological change.
In recent years, Tim has worked extensively to identify equipment that can be used for the calibration of electronic systems now implemented into vehicle design and build – and from here has developed best practice procedures and training to support glazing technicians working with these new technologies.
As a member of the Thatcham Automated Driving Assistance Systems (ADAS) steering group, Tim has most recently been focusing on the impact of ADAS within autoglazing, including the development of a code of practice to ensure vehicles are calibrated and working correctly.
National Windscreens managing director Pete Marsden said, ‘His knowledge and ideas will be invaluable as we implement a number of initiatives designed to ensure we continue to deliver the level of service our customers expect.
‘Tim will initially be tasked with implementing our company-wide ADAS strategy which has been designed to ensure our customers can access quality camera and sensor calibration (CSC) on new windscreens, irrespective of where they are in the UK. He will also lead on our national training policy which will include CSC tool operation.’
Tim added, ‘The technological advances expected over the next five years within the autoglazing sector represent the biggest period of change the industry has faced in the last 20 years. I look forward to supporting the team at National Windscreens through training and best practice as more technical developments, like ADAS, come into play.’
