Denso is looking for garage partners to join its new air conditioning service repair network.

The company, which has been operating a similar network in Spain since 2006, is now rolling out the concept in the UK and other countries in Europe.

Five A/C specialists have already been appointed in the UK.

According to Denso, there is a large and growing demand for A/C compressor repair in the independent aftermarket.

Around 85% of Europe’s 200m vehicles currently have air conditioning installed.

“We wanted to help solve the specialist A/C skills shortage, as well as moving repairers away from imitation and low quality remanufactured components,” said John Reid, the company’s field service engineer.

Garages that join the network will have access to Denso tools and the OE parts that are inside Denso’s A/C Compressors.

They will also be provided with normally restricted OE technical documentation, including repair and test manuals.

Prospective members must complete a technical training programme before being accredited.
