“We experienced a high quantity of quality visitors, paying particular interest in our extensive range of OE quality brake discs, pads, drums plus our remanufactured brake shoes & calipers for the CV market. Visitors possessed a wealth of industry knowledge and therefore their interest reflects the quality and intricate level of detail that is needed to bring ranges of this high standard to the market.”
