1Following on from a successful appearance at Automechanika Birmingham, earlier this year, BM Catalysts branched out to the European aftermarket to showcase their market leading range of Catalytic Converters, Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs) and Front Pipes – this time at Automechanika Frankfurt.

The event took place from September 13-17 and allowed the UK-based manufacturer to display its first range of Euro 5 parts, its Premium range of Blue Angel accredited Catalytic Converters, and it’s newly launched range of DPF Pressure Pipes to the global automotive industry.

Mark Blinston, BM Catalysts’ Commercial Director, said: “The level of interest we received over the five days was very exciting. After a great few days at Automechanika Birmingham, we were keen to obtain an even greater response from the global aftermarket.

“Hundreds of thousands of visitors attended over the course of the exhibition, which gave us the opportunity to speak to a wide range of individuals about our fantastic products. We have attended shows like Automechanika for a number of years now, and we always pride ourselves on giving visitors something new to talk about.

“As the largest independent manufacturer of high-quality aftermarket products, keeping BM Catalysts at the forefront of the aftermarket is a big drive for us, so it is always important for us to attend events and exhibitions in order to discuss our products and gain insight into visitor’s thoughts.”

The event also allowed BM Catalysts’ representatives to discuss new and existing business requirements with visitors, giving them a better understanding about technological changes to products, and methods to increase sales.

Owing to the level of interest received during the Frankfurt show, BM Catalysts is now in the process of planning for next year’s events; including Automechanika Birmingham in June and Paris’ International Automotive exhibition, Equip Auto, in October.

Automechanika will be returning to Frankfurt in September 2018.
