about Test-Trak  
 

Test-Trak is a field testing organisation that has worked with most of Australia’s car manufacturers as well as several high profile European car manufacturers. Test-Trak’s head office is in Melbourne which is the base for most durability testing, We have a facility in Woomera which is a common base for hot testing and Queenstown for cold testing.

Field-testing has long been regarded as an important part of confirming real world performance of a vehicle and its systems. Field durability testing is becoming more popular as manufacturers reduce the numbers of prototypes built. Accelerated durability testing allows manufacturers to identify quality and safety issues and develop countermeasures before consumers experience them in the field.

Mission Statement

Test-Trak conducts field-testing for car manufacturers and key suppliers. Test-Trak specialises in qualitative testing. Test-Trak is unique in offering this type of testing service in Australia, although there are similar companies of significant size in Europe and America.

Test-Trak is a project-based business. We assemble the required skills for a project from our network. Test-Trak has a talented network of staff that provides a base of engineering experience unique to the testing industry. This approach reduces the company’s overall overhead base and enables us to apply the best people to a project, rather than the conventional approach of finding work that existing staff are able to fulfill.

Test-Trak primarily operates in the areas of qualitative testing where we apply engineering principals to areas where dead reckoning has previously been accepted as normal practice.

Test-Trak seeks to be the most professional automotive testing company through:

  1. OE levels of process control, procedures and quality
  2. Outstanding staff with high levels of training
  3. The highest level of vehicle care, client focus, and confidentiality
  4. Thought leadership of qualitative vehicle testing
  5. Safe and cautious practices to ensure staff safety and the prevention of vehicle damage
