VLS, the Verification of Lubricant Specifications, is celebrating a successful Automechanika 2018 after the industry trade body exhibited at the event in Birmingham for a second year running.
Automechanika attracted 10,200 visitors from the UK and abroad as well as 500 suppliers from over 26 countries. The VLS stand was situated in the Garage Quarter in Hall 18 alongside other associated lubricant companies including Morris Lubricants, Total UK and The Race Group.
David Wright, Secretary of VLS and Chairman of UKLA, said, “We decided to invest in attending Automechanika again this year to continue our programme of raising awareness of our work to uphold standards in the industry and protect and educate end users. We were delighted to meet with existing members as well as connect with potential new members including companies looking to expand their operations in the UK. It was also interesting to discuss changes in the industry with OEMs, motor factors and aftermarket suppliers alike and how we can all work together to create a transparent and open market for the benefit of everyone.”
