The Original Equipment Suppliers Automotive Association (OESAA) is offering attendees at the UK’s first ever Automechanika show the opportunity to win a selection of exclusive prizes.
With many of the prizes donated by OESAA members present at the exhibition, participation in the competition will also enable entrants to get to know each of the companies involved a little better.
A competition entry card will be available at the OESAA stand, which also contains 5 questions that participants can ask non-OESAA members to help distinguish between true OE parts and ‘matching quality equivalents’.
The card asks questions such as: “How many vehicle manufactures does your brand supply as first fit?” and “What quality certification and procedures are in place to ensure the reliability and quality of your products?”.
Only OE suppliers will be able to positively answer all of the questions.
Entrants will be in with a chance of winning an ‘OESAA Garage Make Over’ worth £2000, a pair of tickets for Goodwood Festival of Speed (plus 2 NGK VIP hospitality passes), a ‘5-supercar thrill’ Virgin experience at a top race track fromZF and 2 tickets to an England football match at Wembley Stadium courtesy of Hella.
Bosch is also kindly contributing a KTS 970 diagnostics computer and trolley PLUS an FSA 500 module as a complete prize package worth £7,215 RRP. The kit will be on display at the OESAA stand during the show.
“We want to encourage interaction between mechanics and the OESAA members present at the show so that they get a well-rounded perspective on the strides we are taking to drive industry standards upwards,” said OESAA Chairman, Nigel Morgan.
OESAA’s presence at Automechanika is central to the group’s drive to raise awareness of the benefits of OE components and the pitfalls of ‘matching quality’ alternatives; these can include hidden costs from breakages, lost labour time and increased reputational risk.

The Original Equipment Suppliers Aftermarket Association (OESAA) is promising that its stand at this year’s Automechanika, which takes place at the NEC from 7-9 June, will really drive home the benefits of OE components to a garage’s reputation and profit-margin.
Industry expert, Andy Savva, will be on hand throughout the day to educate attendees during a course of live presentations which will explain that the use of OE parts demonstrates dedication to customer satisfaction and safety.
Having been involved in the automotive industry for 30 years, Andy has owned and managed successful garages since 1994. He founded Brunswick Garage back in 2010, successfully demonstrating that an independent garage could rival national chains and main dealers on customer service and technical expertise. In just 18 months, Brunswick Garage reached the final 5 in The National Independent Garage of the Year Award, organised by Motor Trader Magazine.
Now an industry consultant, Andy will be running up to four presentations which he hopes will re-energise garage owners, explaining that the use of OE components wherever possible means that the quality of the repair will not be compromised by a sub-standard part.
“In most instances, negative practices are the result of over-stretched technicians-turned-owners who lack the time to finesse their customer service practices,” said Andy. “As a result, the quality of the work undertaken and the reputation of their business can be compromised.”
The interactive presentation will last 20 minutes, followed by a Q&A session, and will help to raise awareness of the benefits of OE components and the pitfalls of ‘matching quality’ alternatives, including hidden costs from breakages, lost labour time and increased reputational risk.
Commenting on OESAA’s presence, Chairman Nigel Morgan said: “Having Andy Savva on the OESAA stand this year should prove to be a real talking point. His passion and enthusiasm for improving industry standards are infectious, and his real-world experience of using OE products wherever possible to help ensure that his business is successful gives even greater weight to the OESAA message.”
OESAA to bring to life benefits of quality OE products at Automechanika 7-9 June 2016, Stand J39 Hall 10
The Original Equipment Suppliers Aftermarket Association (OESAA) promise an innovative programme of events at this year’s Automechanika, which takes place at the NEC in Birmingham from 7-9 June.
The 6m x 19m stand – one of the largest at the show – will feature a ‘Good Garage’ and a ‘Bad Garage’. Situated at either end of the stand, the contrasting examples aim to show the best and worst practices of the aftermarket.
In between, there will be a seating area in a motor factor setting, featuring interactive presentations to develop the theme of how purchasing OE quality parts, and working with OESAA suppliers, can positively influence garage profitability.
OESAA’s presence at Automechanika is central to the group’s drive to raise awareness of the benefits of OE components and the pitfalls of fitting ‘matching quality’ alternatives; which can include hidden costs from breakages, lost labour time and damage to reputation.
Commenting on OESAA’s presence, Chairman Nigel Morgan said: “The Automechanika exhibition is the perfect opportunity to demonstrate to a large audience the difference that quality OE products can make, by bringing them to life in a simulated garage environment. Vehicle and OE parts manufacturers invest a great deal in research, development and rigorous testing to ensure the highest levels of performance, safety and compatibility.
“It’s a message that needs to be communicated as widely as possible as we find that the most reputable garages – those who consistently deliver the highest levels of customer satisfaction – understand that technicians need to be fully trained, facilities need to be clean and presentable, and that reliable, OE components should be used wherever possible.”
