DENSO Aftermarket, the aftermarket division of original equipment (OE) component manufacturer DENSO, originally developed its e-Learning programme in response to the reduction in face-to-face training, due to the coronavirus lockdown restrictions, and such has been its success that not only has the number of courses grown, but it has paved the way for a European competition – the ‘League of True Mechanics’ or LOTM.
The continuing popularity of Denso Aftermarket’s webinar programme has once again been proved, as the original equipment (OE) component and system supplier has added yet more modules and dates to its free technical training platform.
Introduced in response to the coronavirus crisis to provide technicians with ongoing training during the restrictions imposed by the country’s lockdown measures, Denso Aftermarket’s webinar programme has proved immensely popular. As a result, alongside the original air conditioning and thermal management modules, which will remain, new product categories will join them as the company shares its wealth of technical knowledge derived from decades of original equipment design and production experience.
Denso Aftermarket has released a comprehensive new-to-range update, covering thermal system, spark plug, wiper blade and fuel pump component categories. More than 70 new references are spread among the product groups, which increases the choice available to distributors and technicians, and expands Denso’s UK and Ireland vehicle parc coverage.
Denso will be joining fellow Original Equipment Suppliers Aftermarket Association (OESAA) members at Autoinform Live, held at the GTG Training Academy in Wolverhampton, where hands-on air conditioning and thermal management training will be the key focus for the company.
Denso has added 121 original equipment (OE) quality part numbers to its thermal management range. The latest references consist of 39 radiators, 76 condensers and six cabin blowers, which are linked to 342 OE numbers and cover an additional 2,300 vehicles.
Denso is rewarding its hard-working distributors by creating the Denso Club, an initiative that offers customers the opportunity to win trips to either Denso’s global headquarters in Japan or diesel factory in Budapest
Denso’s innovative vehicle inspection tool, e-Videns, has been further enhanced with the addition of vehicle reset functionality. The unique solution now features options for service interval resets and diagnostic trouble code resets. The update enables technicians to access the same reset functions available with OE equipment, eliminating the need to switch to other reset equipment.
Denso is offering workshops Love2Shop vouchers when they purchase a Denso air conditioning (A/C) compressor. The promotion will run throughout May, June and July. To redeem the £10 Love2Shop voucher, which can be used to purchase a host of products from outlets across the country, technicians need fill in an online form and upload the invoice at the company’s website.
In addition to its comprehensive range of original equipment (OE) parts across multiple product categories, Denso will present its unique e-Videns vehicle inspection tool, designed to assist workshops with customer relations and business efficiencies at Automechanika Birmingham.
Solid Auto (UK) Ltd has become an official UK distributor for Denso aftermarket products. The West Midlands business is rapidly expanding its supply portfolio and states that the addition of the Denso brand will further complement the company’s specialism in the supply of Japanese and Korean car parts. The manufacturer’s spark plugs will initially be available from Solid Auto UK with more product groups likely to be added in the future.
