Better quality all round
Tokheim prides itself on the quality of the products and systems we have produced for our customers for more than a century. Today, we have research and manufacturing centres across the world. Our main plants for dispensers and systems are in Scotland, France, The Netherlands, India, China and Brazil. Below we have focused on our Dundee Manufacturing Centre, which is where the majority of our fuel dispensers are built and distributed from.
Dundee Manufacturing Centre
Dundee is known as a rugged heartland for UK manufacturing – so it’s well matched with a set of products that are built to last for years in the toughest conditions. A state-of-art 11,000 square metre manufacturing facility is the home of Tokheim’s experienced engineers and manufacturing teams. Once your order is placed our skilled engineers get to work on your dispenser. Meticulous attention to detail is paid towards the creation of each and every bespoke fuel dispenser. Only after days of careful assembly and detailed testing do we dispatch a dispenser marked with the renowned Tokheim ‘Quality’ brand.
The meter is effectively the heart of the dispenser. Accuracy is clearly paramount, and Tokheim use proven, reliable technology. Tokheim meters have passed a rigorous life and field test programme, including a 12 Million-litre duration test.
Dispenser Production Lines
What we build on the dispenser production line
each day entirely depends on customer orders.
We use our version of ‘mass customisation’ to guarantee quality, tailored dispensers at the most effective levels.
Printing and Powder Plant
The plant has its own environmentally accredited painting and printing facilities to customise dispenser designs and livery. We have invested in the latest large format digital printing presses to ensure quality, pixel perfect designs for all our customers.
The test bays provide an automatic list of parameters for the operative to check against. Each dispenser is 100% tested for all electronic, hydraulic and mechanical functions, taking into account customised choices as well as country specific, safety, weights and measures regulations.
The dispenser is produced through the successive cells, each one performing a quality control against a checklist before accepting the dispenser. These successive quality walls ensure the high standards you’ve come to expect from Tokheim.
Audit & Packing
Each dispenser is then submitted to a final audit, where all data is electronically recorded against the serial number of the dispenser for traceability. All dispensers are then carefully packaged and dispatched all over the world. It’s now time for them to start delivering for years to come.
