Access Plastics

Access Plastics are Ireland’s largest independent stockist distributor of semi-finished thermoplastics.
They supply a range of Digital & Sign Vinyl, MultiWall polycarbonate sheet, glazing bars and fixing accessories. Access Plastics offer a wide range of both bespoke fabricated and “off the shelf” plastic products and delivered by their in house delivery drivers, with an ever expanding team on the road.

Access Plastics knew it was time to put a fleet management system in place to streamline their now very busy delivery service. With the company’s remarkable focus on Health & Safety in their factory, they also wanted this same focus of safety to be applied to their drivers while out and about nationwide. They searched for an auto electrical company to provide an all in one package of services that would meet their requirements.

The clients requested needs where,

  • To source and install a suitable fleet management system for an expanding fleet.
  • Provide a vehicle accessory fitting service on a multi type vehicle fleet inc HGV’s.
  • Upgrade HGV’s Bluetooth audio & installation of a rear camera monitors.
  • Provide a high quality wifi & app based vehicle dashcams for their fleet.
  • Provide an on-site installation service while compliant in the relevant P.P.E.

Autotronix has provided its services to Access Plastics for a number of years now, having first crossed paths while installing their new vehicle telematics system. The installation of the tracking devices allowed the company to better utilise their delivery & collection process. It also allowed their transport team to have GPS locations, be able to count driver work hours and email warnings of vehicle service intervals as required. Further works include Parrot Bluetooth phone kits to a variety of cars, vans and trucks. From the replacement of audio units to rear reversing cameras Autotronix has quite literally covered this client from bumper to bumper. I dramatically decreased lost time in vehicle works by agreeing with the client to cover their installations outside their own working hours, both PM and weekend visits ensured the work would be completed when the vehicles where not in use.

In a recent project with Access Plastics, Autotronix was required to provide a dashcam solution for their complete fleet, the request was simple, “an easy to use, discreet front facing camera”. It needed to be able to send footage back to their transport team in the event of a situation happening out on the road. They chose our Ddpai system for their fleet and given the feedback I have received about this camera, the quality of the imagery for this device is just top of its league, while its ease of use makes it a sound choice to film everything the road has to offer. This was peace of mind for the drivers, as they now had a witness to view everything for them in their vehicle as they carried out their daily duty’s around Ireland. I have also supplied and fitted the same camera system for some of the staff for their own private cars. Peace of mind covered at the hands of Autotronix where service and quality installations isn’t just a request, it in fact is the definition of the work itself.
