OESAA has selected Andrew Collins of Parkside Garage, winner of two tickets to the Goodwood Festival of Speed after participating in its recent Automechanika competition.
Donated by NGK , Andrew won his exclusive prize after better acquainting himself with a wide range of OE and non-OE manufacturers exhibiting at the Automechanika show held in June.
Andrew quizzed staff members present on the stands, asking a series of questions set by OESAA, such as, “How many vehicle manufactures does your brand supply as first fit?” and “What quality certification and procedures are in place to ensure the reliability and quality of your products?”.
“I decided to participate in the competition after visiting the stand and listening to Andy Savva’s presentation”, said Andrew. “I thought it would be really interesting to fully understand the difference between genuine OE parts and the poorer quality alternatives.”
“Our Automechanika competition certainly helped to drive home the message that ‘matching quality’ alternatives simply aren’t worth the reputational risk”, said OESAA Chairman Nigel Morgan.
