The Independent Automotive Aftermarket Federation has revealed that Jonas Zambakides, boss of independent Porsche specialist JZ Machtech, will chair its new Garage Section (IAAF-G).

And on joining a team boasting a wealth of experience from the likes of Mike Owen, Peter Coombes and Hugh Roberts, Zambakides has wasted no time in asserting his extensive knowledge of the industry.

Zambakides said: “I believe that the IAAF has independent garages’ best interests at its core and will provide the tools and assistance that will secure their future.

“It has always been my intention to play an active role in helping achieve this vital goal and I am delighted to be part of such an organisation.”

In his first move as chairman, he has asked the Department of Transport to consider making Motor Codes subscriptions standard as part of VOSA’s assessment criteria for its MOT centres.

“Chris Mason, Motor Codes director, said: “We’re determined to improve the reputation of the industry for the benefit of every reputable service and repair centre in the UK.

“We will work with Mr. Zambakides to demonstrate how every independent garage in the UK can benefit from subscription to the service and repair code.”
