Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket – LCV and double clutch programmes
Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket will have a major presence at October’s Equip’ Auto exhibition.
With two stands that total over 400m2 in space, the company will be showcasing its latest innovations and concepts to visiting garage technicians. Particular emphasis will be placed on Schaeffler’s LCV and double clutch programmes, with six technical demonstrations on offer per day.
Additionally, visitors will be able to hear about a new online service which will enable garage operators to register in advance for various hands-on events scheduled within the framework of the trade fair. During the event everyone who has registered will receive a text message reminding them of the time and place of the demonstration.
If you’re heading to Paris then you can find Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket on stands 5F060 and 5F071.
BM Catalysts – SCR Technology
BM Catalysts has also announced that its highly anticipated range of Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) products will be on show at this year’s exhibition.
Customers who visit BM’s impressive stand will be able to view, touch and learn more about these exciting new developments.
SCR technology reduces harmful NOX emissions by up to 90%, without compromising overall vehicle performance. The technology is becoming increasingly popular with many of the world’s leading VMs, mainly due to the forthcoming stringent Euro 6 emissions standards. This has prompted BM Catalysts to move quickly to ensure distributors are able to offer a high-quality and cost-effective alternative to OE replacements.
Commercial Director, Mark Blinston explains: “We don’t expect the launch of our new SCR range to have an immediate impact on our sales figure, but that is only due to the fact that vehicles fitted with SCRs only makes up a very small percentage of the existing car parc. This will show that we are fully committed to providing distributors with aftermarket solutions before their customers are demanding them. This will put us even further ahead of our competitors, and hopefully have customers very excited at Equip Auto.”
The new range of BM Catalysts SCR components will benefit from the same advanced engineering, attractive pricing and unparalleled availability as the rest of the manufacturer’s offering, and be available to view on Stand 027, Aisle C, Hall 3, at Equip Auto 2013.
