Lifting the Benchmark in the Automotive Industry

In an Australian first Bartons Group, in conjunction with Levanta, have engineered the future in workshop space for the servicing division of their Bayside Dealership. The two companies worked closely on an intensive four week construction and installation project, to deliver a state of the art automotive servicing facility that will launch at Bartons Wynnum location later in May.

With the automotive industry progressing at a rapid rate, Bartons chose to pre-empt the evolution and future proof their business in anticipation of the after-sale servicing growth trend. Strong local business advocate and Dealer Principal of the Bartons Group, Mark Beitz said, “So often businesses outgrow their facilities inside 5-7 years, and the cost is unsustainable. We have a strong vision for the next 10 years and beyond, so we chose the strategy of high investment in cutting edge technology now, knowing it will pay off in the long run.”

Bartons’ new state of the art servicing facility is the first dealership in Australia to install in-ground Envirolifts. The in-ground style of lift has helped increase the amount of bays in their servicing workshop, while simultaneously increasing their production and saving them time during servicing. Coupled with the added safety features for their staff and increased benefits for their clients, Bartons see their investment as a safe bet. 

Lester Sharples, Chief Operations Officer at Levanta said, “Mark is ahead of his time. We engineered his vision and shaped the Wynnum workshop into a benchmark facility that has seriously impressed industry leaders Australia wide.” 

Working closely with Bartons, Levanta have developed one of the most advanced servicing facilities in Australia, with key features including: 

  • 20 In-ground Envirolift hoists
  • An in-ground knuckle lift with wheel alignment capabilities 
  • A 3-D camera imaging wheel alignment machine
  • An in-ground roller brake and suspension tester for vehicle inspection 
  • 3 Wash bays, including underside wash
  • A full detailing, pre-delivery and window tinting facility
  • Waste oil and waste coolant collection systems
  • Bulk oil storage tanks
  • Direct fluid delivery system servicing individual work bays
  • Plus 6 spare bays for provision of anticipated future expansion
