Formula Motors has become something of an institution in Vereeniging. Located at 17 Lewis Avenue in the central business district, this is the workshop to visit for personal attention, good old honest service and the real deal.
Proprietor Hennie Hattingh established Formula Motors in 1984 and has been at his current location since 1997, providing for the needs of Vereeniging’s motorists from a basic lube service through to a complete engine overhaul. Hennie values his independence, and in his quest to provide a more comprehensive hands-on service he decided to expand his business by adding on a center. With this proactive move, Hennie can now boast that Formula Motors Workshop and Wheel Alignment Centre, which opened on 1 November 2010, is a genuine one-stop shop. Hennie’s son Darren, a qualified motor technician, will be managing the fitment center side of the business, and with Hennie’s wife and 10 loyal employees adding to the passion for the customer, Formula Motors has all the advantages of a family run business.
The aforesaid makes formula motors something special, but what really makes this establishment unique is that it is the first facility of its kind in South Africa to be totally reliant on Launch workshop equipment, from its versatile diagnostic machines to the latest wheel aligner. Hennie says that whilst his choice of Launch equipment was based on the fact that their extensive range can provide for all his needs, the decision as made much easier by the good service that he has received in the past, and the excellent back-up and friendly support that he has received from Ricky Diedericks and Hans Coetzee. This partnership has launched Formula Motors to new heights, and Vereeniging’s motorists can now expect stellar service for all their need at one convenient location.
The Launch KWA 300-4D Wheel Aligner is a user-friendly measuring instrument utilizing computerized Visual Management Technology assisted by 4 high-resolution cameras and 4 passive wheel targets for the evaluation of individual as well as total wheel alignment parameters of the modern motor vehicle.
