Arrow Auto Torque are expanding – New Workshop Build

As some of our regular customers will have noticed, there have been some developments on site here at UBF Industrial Park over the last few weeks. The large hole that has been dug in the ground adjacent to the existing workshop, will be the location for our new purpose built facility.


Firstly a little background on why a new workshop and what’s in store.

Auto Torque has gone from strength to strength over the past 10 years, experiencing substantial growth year on year. The original, one-man operation, is now home to eight team members in it’s third location.

For more than twelve months now, waiting times for bookings have consistently remained an average of 3-4 weeks, something that has presented issues for many of our customers who require urgent repairs or maintenance. The response to this was to increase capacity and reduce waiting times and reaction times to urgent appointments.


The new purpose built facility, will stand next to the existing workshop and has the potential to handle up to 150% more appointments in the future. Growth of this size is not an overnight plan, nor the main focus of the expansion.

Working with our customer’s requirements in mind, the plan for progressive growth is in place to uphold our reputation for great customer service and allow Auto Torque to expand in a controlled manor.


A brief summary of “Building 2” and what it will feature.

3 work bays
2x Snap-On 2-post lifts – Maintenance, Servicing and Upgrades
1x Snap-On 4-post Lift - Dedicated Wheel Alignment facility
1x Snap-On V2200 Wheel Alignment System

New reception & customer waiting area with Comfortable Seating, Wi-Fi, Television, X-Box, Tassimo Coffee Machine, Cold Drinks and Workshop Viewing Area.

New Parts Shop stocking a huge variety of the finest upgraded parts and OEM replacement parts.

Dedicated Undercover Valet/Detailing Bay



The existing workshop will undergo a revised layout, enlarging the clean build room, whilst retaining the two work bays already present.


The build is due to be finished by December 31st so keep following for updates!

Gerald takes the cars down to the Dyno Dynamics rollers in Aylesbury, 6 miles away from base. It provides a live logging opportunity on the return journey to HQ after a mapping session too
