Dayco heads for the UK Garage & Bodyshop Event

Date: Friday 13 May 2022

Dayco will be exhibiting at the UK Garage & Bodyshop Event to be held at NEC, Birmingham on the 8th and 9th June. Alongside a full training schedule, the company, which is occupying stand C30 in Hall 20, shall naturally be showcasing its ever-growing range of aftermarket repair solutions that in addition to power transmission components, also includes wheel bearings, steering & suspension and thermal management products.

“As a leading original equipment (OE) component manufacturer, Dayco has been proactively undertaking technical training within the independent aftermarket for many years. Traditionally through ‘workouts’ at our motor factor customers and at trade events, such as exhibitions and roadshows, but that’s obviously not been possible for the last couple of years,” said Dayco’s National Sales Manager, Steve Carolan. “However, now things are a bit different and after the positives of Autoinform Live, we’re off to Birmingham and the UK Garage & Bodyshop Event at the NEC in June.

“While still targeted at technicians, as this is a bigger event that should draw in a large number of visitors, we’ve redesigned our stand to be less product, and more people focused, so there’s more room for attendees to listen and take part in the training we’ll be delivering. Although this will be undertaken mainly by our Technical Manager, Glen Goldstone, I’m also addressing one of the sessions in the official seminar areas during the event, so we hope to reach as many technicians as we can.

“One of the messages we are keen to get across is the need to remain focused on current technology and that of the immediate future associated with combustion engines because, although electric and hybrid vehicles are all the rage, realistically, workshops will still be dealing with petrol and diesel engine technology for at least the next decade!

“In common with many of the components fitted to the modern vehicle, timing and auxiliary drive system replacement is a highly skilled process that requires attention to detail and the necessity to strictly follow a series of procedures in order to be completed successfully, which is why we are so committed to providing relevant training.

“Technical education at all levels of the industry is paramount to its ongoing success and fortunately there are keen and committed technicians out there who really want to develop their skills and do the best possible job they can. To that end, it’s our goal to help the entire trade to reach that standard, which is why Dayco is not only committed to supplying OE quality products and the best possible technical advice, but first-class training as well.”
