HBA Distribution used the recent Auto Trade EXPO in Dublin to to showcase its new state-of-the-art Sealey Tool Van, which is piloted by HBA’s latest recruit, Frank O’Brien from Tullamore.
A 25-year motor technician, Frank got an absolute baptism of fire at Citywest, as a never-ending line of mechanics made their way in through the back doors and out through the front, getting a hands-on experience of all the latest vehicle service tools as they made their way through this Aladdin’s cave!
Frank was ably assisted by George Sealey, youngest son of John – the founder of Jack Sealey Ltd. and he made sure that all of Ireland’s Sealey dealers that stopped at the stand and placed order with him, received a generous extra discount!
Also of key interest to visitors were the two latest product launches of Brembo & Tunap. On Brembo, HBA were assisted by UK and Ireland Development Manager, Stuart Tagg who was there to answer the many technical questions asked on this world-leading brand of braking components.
HBA was extremely pleased with the level of interest expressed in the Brembo Expert Programme, which it will roll out across Ireland over the coming months,and any Motor Factors who are thinking about taking on a Tier 1 range of pads and discs to sit alongside their current Tier 2 range should call HBA right away and register their interest! It would also be useful to check-out the Expert Programme and watch the videos at: www.bremboparts.com
On the second new product launch, HBA had the assistance of John Ely from Tunap. This high-end range of German-manufactured chemicals and additives is approved by all of the world’s leading vehicle-makers and offers a professional solution to the many problems that are encountered on DPFs and vehicle Fuel Systems.
All of the visitors who stopped by, were well impressed with this product range and again, the website is well worth a visit: www.tunap.com/en
In summing up, Dermot Haughey pointed out the benefits of having a presence at Citywest: “Exhibiting at this type of event is always a costly exercise but the rewards on this particular occasion made it well worth our while. The amount of orders,which were placed by our Factors at our stand over the two days was truly staggering and gave us an immediate high return on our investment. HBA being there, was definitely the right decision.”
