Gates® will be attending the Australian Auto Aftermarket Expo

Mar 02, 2022

MELBOURNE, Mar. 2, 2022 – Gates® Australia, a leading manufacturer of application-specific fluid power and power transmission solutions, announced they will be attending the Australian Automotive Aftermarket Expo held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) from the 7th to 9th April 2022.

Gates® Australia will be exhibiting at stand K42 during this year’s expo. The stand will showcase a number of new and popular automotive products which cover a wide range of systems including cooling, accessory belt drive, synchronous belt drive and tools including modular hoses and Gates® latest complete system replacement campaign ‘Protect the Ride’.

Modular hoses are commonly found across most European cars going back to 2006, modular hoses are now found in almost all current vehicles and present great sales opportunities for distributors, resellers and workshops alike.

The Protect the Ride campaign has three parts covering the serpentine, timing and cooling systems and advocates for complete system replacement, this ensures more profitable jobs for workshops and less customer comebacks. All parts of these systems wear at the same time, if one part of the system needs replacing, all the components are likely to need replacing, if not done this way its more than likely that the customer will return with additional system repairs sooner rather than later due to a failed component.

The Gates® stand features interactive displays, free donuts and product experts with networking opportunities. Attendees can also go into the running to win 1 of 2 Gates® Retro Arcade Drums (RRP: $1850).

Gates® will also be hosting ‘Happy Hour’ on the Friday night of the expo from 6pm to 7pm, everyone attending the expo is welcome to enjoy free drinks on the Gates® stand and network with other professionals and they might even be lucky enough to meet a Supercars driver.

The Gates® stand at Australian Auto Aftermarket Expo will be a must see for all distributors, resellers and workshops to learn about new products they can offer their customers and help increase sales.

The Expo is free for all automotive trade visitors, follow the link to register.
