“We were really happy with Automechanika Birmingham 2017 where we were very busy, with a great deal of interest on the stand, which was fantastic for us. We have plans for an even bigger stand in 2018 because we need to increase our profile in the UK and Automechanika Birmingham is the best platform in the market. Liqui Moly is a quality brand and whatever we can do to promote, we will do.

Ibrahim Memis, Export Area Manager, Liqui Moly

‘The MANN-FILTER stand at Automechanika Birmingham 2017, created an environment conducive to the generation of benefits mutual to MANN-FILTER and the many UK and Ireland Automotive Aftermarket businesses visitors that we welcomed.

For this reason, MANN-FILTER will be present in 2018, when once again the advantages of distributing and or installing premium OE quality MANN-FILTER products, will be further entrenched amongst existing and potential, direct and indirect customers.’

Ken Read, Marketing Manager, MANN+HUMMEL (UK) LTD

“We were so pleased with the show in 2017 that we immediately booked for 2018, when we will be exhibiting at both Automechanika Birmingham and Automechanika Frankfurt.  We are looking forward to another busy show, meeting more high quality distributors and end users, who last year were queueing up to ask questions about our products. We look forward to more success in 2018.”

Guy Foster, Automotive Product Manager, Draper Tools
