Schaeffler on hand at LKQ ECP conference

The Schaeffler team was on hand at the two-day ECP managers’ conference at the Birmingham Hilton recently to provide information on the latest changes in vehicle technology.

Team members on hand included Simon Cooper presenting LuK transmission systems, Mike Hansford on FAG steering & suspension, Brad Adams on INA FEAD, Tim Adams on INA thermal management, Liam Iredale demonstrating Schaeffler’s electronic cataloguing systems and James Mainwaring discussing REPXPERT.

Schaeffler’s Technical Manager Alistair Mason observed: “Although delivering hands-on training to technicians in workshops is what we do most often, speaking with those responsible for supplying the replacement parts installers need provides a different dynamic. When supplying garages with high-tech components, staff from our distribution partners need to understand about the related parts that, in our experience, could also be at risk of failure.”

He added: “Although responsibilities vary at the different levels of the aftermarket, this event emphasises the fact that the REPXPERT programme can help support all job functions within the independent sector, not just workshop technicians.”
