ZF [pro] Tech to feature at ‘The Big UK Garage Event’ in Birmingham


ZF Aftermarket’s technical support and training arm – ZF [pro] Tech – is to have its own dedicated stand at the ‘The Big UK Garage Event’ at Automechanika Birmingham from June 4-6.

The business is hosting two free technical seminars in the Aftermarket Theatre on the topic of autonomous driving and ZF experts will be on the stand throughout the show giving impromptu live technical demonstrations and providing information about ZF [pro] Tech.

Furthermore, visitors who happen to be on the stand at the right time will have the chance of meeting TV presenter, mechanic and motor enthusiast, Edd China.

The Big UK Garage Event

Automechanika Birmingham 2019 is giving independent garages a boost by launching the new ‘The Big UK Garage Event’ at this summer’s show, providing more benefits to thousands of garages planning to visit. This builds on the success of last year’s first dedicated Hall for garages which was one of the highlights of the 2018 show.

Dedicated ZF [pro]Tech stand

As part of this event, ZF Aftermarket will illustrate how it delivers cutting edge technical support, information & training to the independent aftermarket (IAM) through its ZF [pro] Tech garage workshop concept at a dedicated stand (Hall 18, Stand Y171). Visitors to the stand will have the opportunity to talk to ZF experts about membership benefits of its two industry programmes Plus & Start, get the low down on training courses available – including the brand new ‘Introduction to Electrical Engineering’ which debuts in July – and witness live demonstrations on a High Voltage test rig.

Wayne McCluskey

In addition, well-known ZF technical expert, Wayne McCluskey will be delivering two seminars on Autonomous Driving System Developments. These free seminars will be held in the Aftermarket Theatre on June 4 from 14:30-15:00 and June 6 from 12:15-12:45.

Technical training manager, ZF Aftermarket, Wayne McCluskey explained: “For the industry, it’s truly great news that Automechanika is hosting ‘The Big UK Garage Event’ which will really help communicate the training message. Put bluntly, if today’s technicians don’t invest now in the training necessary for the vehicles of the future, they won’t be able to service and repair them – leaving the door open for those who can and compromising the integrity of the IAM.”
