LKQ Euro Car Parts, MPM Oil, Pagid, Schaeffler, Shell, Valeo, Varta, and ZF Aftermarket have launched a new garage concept to help navigate the ever-changing automotive landscape and provides independent workshops with the tools, training, and business support they need to grow.
1TEC Auto Hub delivers the latest technical and diagnostic data to facilitate a first-time fix, marketing support and materials, business support to help unlock further revenue streams, training including access to LKQ Euro Car Parts’ LKQ Academy, and a rewards platform.
Kevan Wooden, chief commercial officer, LKQ Euro Car Parts, said: “Collaboration is key in these times of rapid technological and regulatory change in our sector, while access to the latest tools, training and technical data is vital to garages working on modern vehicles.
“This is why, through 1TEC Auto Hub, we’re seeking to create a network that supports a professional community of independent workshops and empowers them to future proof their businesses.”
Members are required to meet a set of criteria to ensure consistently high standards of service.
Kevan Wooden continued: “In a market where poor service can have such tangible implications, we recognise the importance of developing trust with customers. Our ambition is to develop 1TEC Auto Hub into a brand that consumers actively seek out for best-in-class customer service and efficient, effective service maintenance and repair work.”
