To make sure CAT stays at the very heart of the aftermarket, weâ€™re creating a new panel made up of a wide cross section of the industry.
We want retailers, garages, factors, suppliers, parts manufacturers, buying groups and trade associations to form a 50-strong panel of opinion formers.
By sharing their insight, expertise and opinion, we aim to ensure CAT is even more packed with lively debate and advice from those who know the industry the best.
Half of the panel have already been invited and include suppliers like Malcom Rosher at Comline and Peter Cox at Motaquip, manufacturers like Nigel Morgan at Schaeffler, factor managers like Richard Swann at GSF or Wyn Jones at GMF, workshop owners like Andy Savva at Brunswick Garage, retailers like Richard Shortis of the Shortis Group and buying groups like the Parts Alliance.
The remaining places are up for grabs. We know that a lot of companies and individuals have very forthright opinions, so this is the chance to get your point across and get your name in CAT.
Weâ€™ll contact you every other week Â – half of the panel one week, half of the panel the next – and collect your opinions on topics of the day. Every comment will be posted on our website at catmag.co.uk to get the aftermarket online,
The best comments will also find their way into the magazine each month, so there really is no better way to put your company on the map and in front of current and prospective clients.
Besides the opportunity to raise your profile, all of the panel members will also be invited to what we hope will become a regular event in the aftermarket calender â€“ an informal summer hog roast.
If youâ€™re interested in joining the panel, get in touch with the Editor, Peter Lawton, at email@example.com or by calling 020 8267 5906.
