MECHANEX 2023 preview

MECHANEX 2023 preview

For the aftermarket, November means ONE thing: the Mechanex trade show at Sandown Park. This year, visitors will benefit from an even bigger show as we introduce the PMM LIVE brand to the show.

2023 sees PMM once again rounding up the most important suppliers in the aftermarket to provide workshop owners and technicians with an engaging, informative day out of the workshop. The UK’s longest-running trade show dedicated solely to the independent aftermarket will once again be held at Sandown Park on Tuesday 7th and Wednesday 8th November. 2023’s show promises to be a lively one, with even more exhibitors than last year signed up for the two day show.

How do I visit?

Getting to the show couldn’t be easier. The address for the show is:

Sandown Park
Portsmouth Road

If you’re coming by car head to the free car park. If you’re coming by public transport, the nearest train station is Esher, a 13 minute walk from the venue.

MECHANEX is well known within the independent aftermarket for offering visitors a hands-on experience, bringing them the latest updates and expertise from across the industry and providing an exciting day away from the workshop.

Registration to visit the show is free and so is parking, so why not come and take a look at what the biggest names in the aftermarket have to show you. In such a competitive industry, MECHANEX is an opportunity you can’t afford to miss.

Come and say hi!

As always, PMM will have a stand at the show, so come and say hi and let us know what you like (or dislike!) about the magazine. We may even be podcasting at the show, so please do come armed with your strongest opinions!

If you like PMM, you’ll love MECHANEX – it’s simply the magazine in a live format.

Did you know?

Did you know you can claim CPD points for each seminar you attend at Mechanex? Simply scan the QR code at the stand at the end of each seminar, it couldn’t be easier.


2023 sees the introduction of the PMM LIVE brand. The trade’s favourite magazine is celebrating by bringing you the very best seminar content from exhibitors and industry experts. This year the show will feature TWO PMM LIVE branded seminar areas: the Learning Lounge and the Technical Talks area. These areas offer you the perfect opportunity to get involved and answer the questions you’ve been dying to know.

PMM ’s editor Kieran Nee catches up with Mann+Hummel’s Gary Winslow and Damian Milling to find out what makes Mechanex appealing to the brand and what they’ll be bringing to the show this year.

MECHANEX 2023 preview

Morning guys, besides the free bacon roll, what’s bringing you to the show this year?

MECHANEX 2023 preview

Gary Winslow, product and marketing manager (GW): Well, the free bacon roll is always a plus. I think for a brand such as ourselves, we’ve got a big reputation and a big product in the market, so it’s really good to actually touch base and talk to garages, meeting mechanics in person. It makes it a little bit more personable. Marketing is a wonderful thing, but it can be a little bit one dimensional. So to actually meet and greet, welcome people onto the stand is a real plus for us.

Is this your first time at Mechanex?

MECHANEX 2023 preview

Damian Milling, national sales manager (DM): We’ve been before, back in the early days, certainly before COVID, and we felt it was time to get back out there and get to these fantastic regional events. You know, the big events that are central to the UK are great, but it’s also important that we’re in the place where our customers are actually working. We want to be as accessible to as many people as possible. So, you know, to get back and go down to Sandown, interacting with those people in that local vicinity and those that do travel is very exciting.

GW: I think what’s important as well, we don’t just take the sales team to exhibitions. We take product management. We take people from customer services. The whole aftermarket division gets represented. So the people that come to the show, they’re not just having a sales pitch, they are having education, they are having training, they are talking to the people at the coalface every single day and I think that probably sets us apart. You literally get what’s in all the full experience and I think that benefits everybody.

Why do you think trade shows are so important?

DM: I mean, I think for us, we, it’s an opportunity to learn. So, you know, we’re going to teach our customers and their customers about our product, but actually at the same time, they’re teaching us what they need, what they’re struggling with, what the concerns are, what their worries are, what their frustrations are, which then allows us to listen and to think and to learn and react and try and be better at what we do. You know, we are the premium filtration manufacturer globally, but it doesn’t mean to say we haven’t got room to learn.

Why should visitors come over to the Mann+Hummel stand, then?

DM: We’re moving to a world of alternative fuel sales and electrification. Legislation is changing already. Recently, we’ve seen the change in UK government, internal combustion engine moving from 2030 to 2035. Will that change again? Come and talk to us on our stand. We have a product that will be guaranteed to work for you and your customers, whether it be a vehicle straight off the production line into your workshop for its first service.

The Mann-Filter, you can fit it, you can forget about it. It will not invalidate any block exemption regulations or manufacturer’s warranty whatsoever. We have a product in our range with Wix, a fantastic aftermarket quality product that’s really designed to give you that security, that quality, that confidence in fitting a product from a global manufacturer of filtration at a slightly lower price point for those more price conscious customers that you have.

But come and talk to us, speak to our product team, speak to our technical team, speak to our sales guys, we don’t bite, we are here to help you. And any concerns you’ve got that filtration is going to disappear, because filtration is bread and butter of your everyday business. I can tell you now, you’ve got nothing to fear. There are filtration products on alternative fuel cell vehicles, electric vehicles, full battery, plug-in hybrid.

GW: We will have an area for Q&A sessions where we will go through the technical aspects of the products. We will be taking products on the stand so you can actually hold it in your hand, you can talk about it.

PMM chats to some of the seminar speakers at this year’s event.

IGA’s head of member services, Frank Harvey

MECHANEX 2023 preview

Is there anything new coming down the MOT pipeline this year?

The DVSA are continually looking at ways to reduce errors and save time, even though this may require further investment from the testing stations. We are aware that the DVSA are currently trialling ways of testing nitrous-oxide emissions, this was also part of the recent consultation, and they are undertaking a second round of trials using Automatic Number Plate recognition, (ANPR), via a smart phone or tablet, to aid vehicle identification and reduce errors.

In addition to this the DVSA are also trialling connected headlamp aim lamp equipment. If these trials are successful, it is likely we will see these introduced over the next couple of years. The last thing, that has been well publicised, is that training hours have been reduced from 16 hours over a five year period, to 15 hours over a five year period, in other words it is now simply three training hour per annum.

Is there anything new coming down the MOT pipeline this year?

Any source of relevant information is important, open forum seminars present those present with an opportunity to ask questions and gain better understanding of the some of the day-to-day challenges garages face. The benefits go far beyond what a speaker has to say, these are also networking opportunities, where shared experiences and solution can also provide huge benefit for those that attend.

Ben’s health and wellbeing director, Rachel Clift

MECHANEX 2023 preview

What has Ben been up to this year?

We have been very busy supporting those who work, or have worked, in the automotive industry with their health and wellbeing. It’s a tough time for people right now with the cost-of-living crisis so we’re supporting people in many ways. We have a record number of people coming to us for support, not just about money worries, but also because of the knock-on effect that the cost-of-living crisis has had on their health and wellbeing, particularly mental health.

Why are events like Mechanex important to mechanics and to Ben?

It’s really important for us to attend events like Mechanex to raise awareness about the services and support that Ben provides. We want everyone in the automotive industry to know that Ben is there for them, providing support with their health and wellbeing through our free and confidential online selfhelp, helpline, support and specialist services. So, if you’re worried about your physical or mental health or concerned about your general wellbeing, we’re here to help.

Are you looking forward to the show?

I’m very much looking forward to the show, it will provide a great platform to share more about the support and services that Ben provides to those who may not already know about us.

Neil Pattemore, UK AFCAR

MECHANEX 2023 preview

What’s going on with competition legislation at the moment?

Following a welcome revision of the Motor Vehicle Block Exemption in the UK, the Competition and Markets Authority has recognised some of the important changes in the way that vehicles are diagnosed, serviced and repaired. However, there are still important aspects that require changes in other related UK legislation to ensure that independent operators can continue to have the ability to offer competitive services and consumer choice.

Why is access to data important?

The very basis of competition is enshrined in both EU and UK legislation, but as vehicle technologies have evolved, the devil is in the detail and it has also become more difficult for legislators to keep abreast of these technological changes. The ‘access to data’ is fundamental to being able to diagnose and repair a vehicle, but the ‘good old days’ of simply plugging into the OBD socket are fast disappearing.

Isn’t security of the utmost importance?

Of course, the security of the vehicle is very important, but this should not mean that competition should not, or cannot, exist. The process should not be ‘security by obscurity’, but should be a robust process with access and content set by legislation. However, by definition, who is working on the vehicle and for what purpose will need to be transparent.

Darren Darling, DPF Doctor Network

MECHANEX 2023 preview

Darren, we’ve spoken in the past about DPFs presenting problems for garages. Is there a lack of understanding in the industry?

Yeah, and I don’t think it’s just a DPF problem to be honest. I went to college for three or four years and I was a qualified mechanic, but the world’s moved on, you know, and we have to keep up with technology. Imagine an EV turns up at your workshop: do you have the knowledge base and are you equipped? Are you relying on a scan tool telling you what’s wrong?

So yeah, there’s a lack of understanding, in my opinion. The information from manufacturers is not great either. So for us, we just developed our own process of working, understanding each individual vehicle, you know: how are the software strategies on a Toyota compared with a VW and so on and so on. It’s quite a painstaking process learning all these things, but without that, we would be stabbing in the dark a little bit and we would have a low success rate. On a local level we have a well-established workshop. I think that without a good process then you’re just doing forced regenerations and having limited success.

A big risk comes with forced regenerations, right?

Yes, it’s something that’s not on the menu list at our workshop. It’s not something that we do. There’s no diagnostic value to it. Forcing it to do something is not telling you that it’s able to do it itself. They’re two very, very different things. So doing its own routine regeneration during driving is completely different to you hitting the magic button and it forcing itself. You’re risking it getting too hot. Is it safe to do so?

What are your plans for Mechanex, then?

I want to share that the message that the pretty solid reputation for DPF repairs we’ve built up over the years is not the result of doing anything complicated. We’ve done it by spending a lot of time owning our mistakes. In the early days, if we made a mistake, that was my problem. How can I stop that happening again? It’s about building up a good process.

I want to drive some points home regarding how important that process is because it reduces stress in the workshop: you’re more efficient; you’re more profitable.

PMM ’s news and products editor Freya Coleman caught up with the two sponsors of the PMM LIVE Technical Talks seminar stand to find out what brought them to the show.

What are you bringing to the show this year, anything new?

We have a diverse range of products at Liqui Moly from our motor oils, additives, care range and service items. At the show, we intend to showcase a small selection of these so you can get a real feel for what we have to offer the trade. We’re not just motor oils and additives, we have a selection of top, high-quality products that can suit your workshop and garage needs.

Why should mechanics take time out to come to the show?

Mechanex is a great show to engage with the aftermarket. It’s a fantastic opportunity for us in the industry to get to know what problems you are facing day-today in the workshop and see if we can provide the solutions you need. Not only this, you may see technologies and products you weren’t aware of to diversify the services you can offer as well.

Why have you decided to sponsor the NEW PMM Live Technical Talks?

The automotive industry is always changing and is different to what it was a couple of decades ago. Smaller capacity engines that require very specific oil grades is one example of changes in the automotive sector. So, with PMM Live, we at Liqui Moly feel that education is an important aspect to ensure the right information is out there for the industry. Visitors can gain great insights by attending these educational seminars, so they are able to give the best recommendations and prepare themselves for the future.

What are you most excited about for the show?

For us at Liqui Moly, we are excited to have a chance to discuss what we can offer as a partner for your garage or workshop. From our approvals on our oils, to seeing how our additives could save money. Trade shows, as a whole, provide a great avenue for discussions that sometimes aren’t possible in the work setting.

Could you just start by introducing yourself and Alldata?

I’m Simon Frost, I’m the sales director for the UK for Alldata. Alldata is a company where we license the original repair data created by the vehicle manufacturers and we make it available to the independent garage sector.

This enables the independent garage to repair vehicles at the same level as the franchise dealer and we’re currently covering about 95 per cent of the vehicles on the road in the UK today.

So, you guys are sponsoring a seminar stand at Mechanex this year, why should mechanics come visit?

Well, the seminars are a great part of the show. There’s a lot of great content and it’s all massively relevant. There are all the top people in the industry presenting the latest knowledge and the latest findings and how to do business better and I think it’s really good for business owners to try and get away from their business for a short period of time, come and see what’s new, listen to what’s going on in the market and actually get to meet some of the people there and ask their own questions.

You’ll also have your own stand at the show, do you have any exciting things going on at your stand or any show deals for visitors?

We’ll be showing our repair product with all the data and looking at a recently launched product called Labor Times. So, customers can have a full demonstration with one of the sales team, they can spend some time on their own looking at the type of data we have just to make sure and see for themselves at their own leisure. They can also sign up for a two-week free trial. So, the best way to really test all data is in the workshop and see if it’s helping you day to day to save some time or maybe take on a new repair you couldn’t do previously.

Why do you think trade shows are important? Why should technicians take a day out of the workshop to come down?

Over the past few years, we’ve lost a bit of those face-to-face meetings and those interactions. That’s really coming back now. So, just meeting people face-to-face is valuable. There’s an atmosphere there of openness, people showing what they have, a chance to see new stuff. It’s great to go and see how you can maybe implement something new to improve your business.
