The Queen's Diamond Jubilee and 2012 Summer Olympics promise to be a boon to all sorts of British businesses — including ATM parts suppliers.
According to a news release from Testlink, a U.K. supplier of new and refurbished ATMs and ATM components, the company's ATM parts sales have jumped 15 percent during the last two months. With a significant bump in both local and tourist traffic expected at ATMs, service providers are anxious to ensure high levels of ATM availability.
As the buildup to the London Olympics gathers momentum, Testlink is also reporting an increase of more than 50 percent increase in customer requests for new and refurbished configured currency cassettes, as measured against the same period last year.
"Such high levels of cash transactions will inevitably drive more maintenance calls and parts requirements," said TestLink Managing Director, Greg Hughes. "TestLink has worked closely with its field maintenance customers to ensure there will be sufficient inventory in place at the key Olympic sites to ensure levels of ATM availability are maintained."
