MS Amlin renews contract with National Windscreens

MS Amlin, the specialist global insurer, has extended its four-year contract with National Windscreens in support of its wide range of motor insurance policies for businesses and fleet operators across the UK.

Matthew Wilson, Claims Manager of Motor at MS Amlin, commented: “National Windscreens has provided excellent customer service to our customers over the past four years. It has a strong track record in servicing fleet customers supported by a specialist glazing division for less mainstream vehicles, which was vital when deciding to renew the contract.

“In addition, it was important to choose a partner who can service one of the fastest growing segments of the automotive industry, namely calibration of windscreen-mounted cameras that form part of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).”

National Windscreens boasts a world-leading position in ADAS camera calibration through a UK network of 108 fitting and calibration centres that provide a one stop service for windscreen replacement and calibration on a truly local basis.

As vehicle manufacturers are constantly looking at ways to reduce the number of collisions and traffic incidents, ADAS have been introduced at an ever increasing pace, with over 40% of UK vehicles predicted to have at least two ADAS features by 2020. ADAS include a wide range of safety systems for vehicles such as autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, night vision cameras and adaptive lighting.

Martyn Bennett, regional director at National Windscreens, said: “Our ability to provide a truly national service of the highest quality, in the quickest possible time is extremely valued by all of our clients. We have already invested over £2 million in equipment, training, and facilities and will maintain this commitment to being the leading ADAS camera calibration provider in the UK.

“National Windscreens is already established as the UK market leader for ADAS camera calibration with almost 6,000 calibrations undertaken to date. We aim to maintain this with a service that means on average, a UK motorist will be only 11 miles or 20 minutes away from a technician, ensuring motorists can drive away after a single visit with both their windscreen replaced and calibration work completed to required safety standards.”
