Yuasa Battery Sales are exhibiting at Automechanika 2012. The company is promoting the latest in automotive battery technology with an emphasis on the importance of education and training in the aftermarket as vehicle electrics become ever more complex and the market becomes increasingly challenging and competitive.
There is new battery technology on display from the Yuasa automotive and motorcycle ranges alongside two new automotive battery conductance analysers designed to support important tests as part of the overall battery management process for aftermarket operators. There is also information on Yuasa’s unique training offering for customers that is dedicated to the education of both Yuasa internal staff and the company’s customers in all areas relating to the products they produce.
The Yuasa training schemes aim to support all areas of Yuasa’s business – both internally and externally – as well as working in tandem with the company’s existing customer base in order to provide a way for new customers to become familiar with the brand, products, future opportunities and, most importantly, technology. Training is available in all areas of and for all aspects of Yuasa’s customers’ businesses. It is possible to design training courses that not only focus on a particular department within a business but can also be tailored to address specific issues and problems associated with battery storage, sales/marketing, testing, warranties and new technologies that affect the current performance, future development and growth of the business. When delivered as a package throughout the business, the benefit of training existing and new staff not only adds value to the business but also empowers each individual staff member to deliver a quality battery product with the back up and support of manufacturer knowledge to the end customer.
Education and training in the aftermarket has become an essential need as today’s power hungry vehicles require new technology, high performance batteries. The introduction of Microhybrid fuel saving/exhaust emission reduction technology such as Idle Stop/Start, charging system control and the increasing addition of yet more electrical equipment as standard has led to a requirement for completely different and more robust forms of automotive batteries such as AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) and EFB (Enhanced Flooded Battery). These advances have raised more questions and raised new problems when trying to accurately test a battery for both SOC (state-of-charge) and SOH (state-of-health) and the manufacturer education provided by Yuasa is intended to address these.
The company is exhibiting on stand B24 in hall 3.1.
