United Kingdom-based National has named Tim Camm as technical manager.
With 33 years of experience within the auto glazing sector, including 20 years in technical training and support, Camm will play a critical role in ensuring National Windscreens maintains technology leadership as this sector moves through a period of rapid technological change, according to a company statement.
In recent years, Camm has worked to identify equipment that can be used for the calibration of electronic systems now implemented into vehicle design. He has helped to develop 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, he has most recently been focusing on the impact of ADAS within auto glazing, including the development of a code of practices to ensure vehicles are calibrated and working correctly.
“We are delighted to welcome Tim to the National Windscreens’ management team,” says Pete Marsden, National Windscreens managing director. “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 U.K. He will also lead on our national training policy which will include CSC tool operation.”
Camm adds, “The technological advances expected over the next five years within the auto glazing sector represent the biggest period of change the industry has faced in the last 20 years. I am delighted to be joining the U.K.’s largest independently-owned windscreen repair and replacement specialist and look forward to supporting the team at National Windscreens through training and best practice as more technical developments, like ADAS, come into play.”
