BOOKINGS TAKEN FOR AUTOMECHANIKA B’HAM 2019


A number of suppliers have been confirmed as exhibitors for the Automechanika Birmingham show to be held in 2019.

Big names already booked include Schaeffler, ZF, Denso, Delphi Technologies, Valeo, Bosch, Hella, Bilstein Group, NGK and Yuasa.

The 2019 edition will be the last annual show before it switches to a biennial format. This was in response to a number of larger visitors expressing concerns that exhibiting at both Frankfurt and Birmingham in the same year was too much of a stretch.

Show bosses are predicting more than 600 exhibitors and as many as 12,000 delegates for show, now in its fourth year.

Jack Halliday,  Head of Sales for the show, said: “The event will go biennial from 2019 – we’re already experiencing a high demand from companies wanting to exhibit to ensure they see the market before 2021.”

MARATHON TO DISTRIBUTE WAI COMPONENTS


Independent distributor Marathon Warehouse Distribution has signed a deal with component manufacturer WAI Global to stock and deliver its range which includes starters, alternators and window regulators among other items.  

Marathon offers a  same-day service, which can reach around 85 percent of the UK’s population.

WAI customer stock orders will continue to be supplied through the company’s Bognor Regis warehouse on a next day delivery service, but with the implementation of the same day service, the plan is to bring WAI closer to the motor factor and ensure immediate access to ‘grey tail’ products.

Colin Fisher and Richard Welland

Richard Welland, WAI Global UK Managing Director, said: “There’s no denying the UK automotive aftermarket is changing at an alarming rate. In the past few years, we have worked to bring the WAI brand closer to motor factors and garages, meeting their demand for an almost instant parts supply.

Colin Fisher, Marathon Warehouse Distribution Sales and Marketing Director, said: “The ambition of WAI matches our own and we’re delighted to be stocking the widest range of WAI products and supplying the brand to motor factors on a frequent same day basis. We’re an independent national warehouse distributor and our logistics platform has to be able to offer motor factor customers a full range of high quality products both quickly and efficiently.”
