The first-ever REPXPERT Awards take place at Schaeffler’s conference on Wednesday 22nd May, held at the Manufacturing Training Centre in Coventry.

Garages have until Friday 10th May to nominate candidates for the ‘Apprentice of the Year’ and the ‘Extra Mile’ awards. A third award, ‘Workshop of the Year’ will be presented to the garage that has been judged to have used their REPXPERT membership most efficiently.

Guest presenters include Tim Benson, Andy Savva, Dean Lomas and Matt Wiseman with many other special guests from the aftermarket.

“Our new REPXPERT Conference will showcase both the challenges our industry faces and how the people within it are using this as motivation to achieve at the highest possible level,” said Matt Selby, Sales and Marketing Director at Schaeffler Aftermarket. “Through the nominations we receive for the REPXPERT Awards, we can acknowledge the contribution of the best workshops and technicians operating in the sector.”

The closing date for nominations is Friday 10th May. To nominate somebody for a REPXPERT Award, go to:

Final 2023 REPXPERT Millionaire announced

The Village Garage, based in Bishops Waltham, Hampshire, has been announced as the third and final winner of Schaeffler’s REPXPERT Millionaire promotion for 2023, which was for FAG products scanned between October and December.

The Village Garage has been running for 35 years and was established by Matt Booth and his wife Kirsty. On their reaction upon learning they had won, Matt said: “We were a little shocked, especially my wife, bless her. When she first got the call, she thought we had won £1million, but they said, ‘No, it’s a million points,’ which is still brilliant!” On how he will be spending the million points, Matt said: “We’ve ordered some of the branded work clothing. We are also going to give some points to our lads who work here, so they can top up their toolboxes with things they need.”

The promotion is back for 2024, the next being July/August and November/December. The draw is open to all REPXPERT members.
