They also have ample space outside with 20 or more vehicles ready for their turn in the production schedule.

TechOps has a wide range of skill sets that it employs from cabinetry to very intricate electrical and electronic installations.
Each of these builds has a specific purpose and TechOps has engineers whose job it is to design the best system to suit the end user.
