True Grit from Northern Maintenance - MOT Workshop magazine article

Northern Maintenance are a nationwide business based in the the North East of England and specialise in re-gritting MOT brake rollers.

Formed in 1998 by founder Roli Bell they have evolved to become one of the main leaders in anti-skid application.

MOT Workshop magazine issue 37 coverStarting out as a company that supplied the trade with maintenance repair products, it was quickly noticed that a niche in the market was available as there was no straightforward options in quality anti-skid coatings to brake testers.

Replacing rollers proved to be a costly way to go and buying do-it-yourself kits gave unreliable results.

Morthern Maintenance proudly claim to use the best resins on the market, in fact they say they only use Lloyds of London approved materials. This is how they are able to offer guarantees and a promise thattheircoatings last. A class 4 machine should expect at least 5 years before further attentionis needed.

NorthernMaintenance is nnow run by Roli's son, Colin Bell and are continuously looking to expand. They worked on over 300 machine last year, including all makes and models of class 4 class 7 and commericials, councilsand independant traders.

They are public liabilty licensed and offer over 20 years' experience. Regritting a brake roller is fantastics value for money compared to buying new equipment.

They aslo apply anti-skid coatings to four post ramps, recoveryvehiclesand workshop doorways and floors.
