PAGID, in partnership with Euro Car Parts, has doubled the size of its technical services team for the UK aftermarket, with plans to expand further later in the year.
Following the arrival of three new team members, there are now six field-based braking specialists, all of whom are fully-qualified mechanics and experts on the Pagid brand.
Each team member looks after a particular region of the UK or Ireland, providing expert braking support for Euro Car Parts’ aftermarket customers by visiting workshops, helping with technical issues and advising on the best fitment practice with fitting demonstrations.
The team is also able to explain new product developments and Pagid market releases. In addition, IMI-accredited Pagid Professional Academy Brake Fitment courses are available through Euro Car Parts’ Euro Academy Training Programme, which more than 270 technicians have completed.
Phil Woodcock, UK key account manager at Pagid, commented: ‘As the first choice braking brand for UK workshops, Pagid is committed to delivering first class product quality and a first rate service to the UK aftermarket.
‘The expansion of our team of technical specialists further illustrates this commitment and underlines our intention to ensure Pagid is always first choice for workshops.’
Bill Stimson, technical sales director at Euro Car Parts, added: ‘Braking is an important part of every repairer’s business and we are committed to providing an industry resource that helps speed up the fitment process.
‘We are working with Pagid to ensure that knowledge about its extensive range is shared with our branches, employees and customers so that the end customer gets the right part every time.’
