GS Yuasa enjoy another successful year at Automechanika in Frankfurt

GS Yuasa put on a fantastic show as at this year’s 25th Automechanika in Frankfurt, Germany. The world’s leading battery manufacturer for automotive, motorcycle and industrial batteries exhibited its market-leading Yuasa and GS brands as well as its latest cutting-edge technology and workshop initiatives.

Jon Pritchard, General Sales & Marketing Manager at GS Yuasa Battery Sales UK Ltd said: “We have had another very successful Automechanika exhibition – it has been our busiest one to date! The event is hugely important to us as it allows us to showcase our high-quality, trusted battery products, and highlight the characteristics of our latest innovative industry tools.

We were pleased to welcome a large number of visitors to our stand again this year, and to be one of the 5,000 exhibitors who demonstrated their services to the European automotive aftermarket at this year’s record-breaking event.

Our Online Battery Lookup system is the most powerful in Europe. It’s a crucial part of the service we offer our customers, and it proved to be a great talking point on our interactive exhibition stand – as did our ever-popular BTCC Scalextric circuit!
