Event hailed a success for the ADAS, diagnostic and garage equipment specialist

Two weeks on from the UK Garage and Bodyshop Event, A1 ADAS Solutions Group has reported a surge in enquiries following the successful trade show.

The event, attended by over 5,000 people, was hailed a success for the ADAS, diagnostic and garage equipment specialist with its experts constantly in demand for advice and information across the two days.

Managing director, Iain Molloy, said: “Since the show, we’ve had meetings with national companies, bodyshops, workshops, and colleges, some of whom have travelled from across the UK to see us at our HQ in Norfolk.

“The enquiries have been for our full range of services and products with a particular increase in demand for our A1 Remote Diagnostics offering. This is in line with us constantly hearing about the problems workshops are having with secure gateways. Sometimes they’re even struggling to reset a service light.

“At that point, they’re looking for our A1 Remote Diagnostic service to step in and take the problem away. They just call us, plug in the interface and we remotely carry out the coding. Some jobs literally take us ten minutes. Prior to working with us, that problem might have involved hours of unbilled technician time, a trip to a main dealer, or both.”

For the A1 ADAS Solutions Group, the UKGBE show followed hot on the heels of Mechanex-PMM Live last month, an event that Iain says was equally successful.

“A lot of attendees wanted advice and to buy products there and then. We saw a lot of the Autel 909 go out which offers good all-round value for money and has the option to add ADAS software, multipack secure gateway unlocking, and EVs.

“As a company we’re experiencing incredible growth. We’ll be expanding again over the summer and look forward to seeing everyone at more trade events later in the year.”
