Why have you chosen to participate in EQUIP AUTO 2019?
Back in 1985, at the first edition of EQUIP AUTO, we were there. Since then, we are constantly increasing our presence. In 2001, our stand was 300 m2, for this new 2019 edition, it is three times larger. We had 30 permanent employees here in 2011, today there are 90 to 125 employees who welcome visitors daily for the duration of the show.
It is important for us to participate in this to affirm our positioning as a multi-brand and multi-dealer distributor of excellence, which ensures the highest level of satisfaction to its customers. We also want to demonstrate our ability to develop the repair professional's business through innovative solutions and designs, the fruit of a collaborative work. Finally, it is always a fresh opportunity to gather the family of repair professionals in a spirit of conviviality and sharing!
What are you expecting from your participation at the show?
We want to "create the connection", which continues to be our course of action this year. We expect to be able to showcase our expertise and innovations, but also to interact with repair professionals, get their vision of the evolution of our sector and their feedback on what we offer them.
What will be your topic at EQUIP AUTO? And your best pick?
In line with the Autodistribution network strategy "Preference 2022" announced in Malta, we present the progress on the "Technician", "Entrepreneur" and "Merchant" initiatives. We will also highlight new solutions to meet the inevitable technical evolutions of our sector, especially for Eco-Maintenance and ADAS.
Our favorite: the expansion of our garage equipment range thanks to the establishment of our new national platform, which allows us to store more than 1400 references, including lifting, ground connection, cleaning equipment, compressed air, starting and charging, small equipment, lubricant and lubrication. We offer the best of equipment: some 40 brands of recognised equipment manufacturers and Isotech, our distributor brand.
