He added that the aftermarket as a whole had managed to exit the pandemic in rude health. “It is the people that make this sector, the personalities that brings to this trade tonight we’ll have customers surprise competitors all together under one roof”, he said.

“The one thing that unites us is that we are all in the same sector. One aftermarket facing the same challenges, but striving for the same opportunities and trying to bring them access we are a brilliant sector with brilliant people filled with passion and enthusiasm ” he added.
