Autoparts UK launches new Padtech Fitting Centre Programme


Date: 03-Feb-2020

Autoparts UK has launched a new Padtech brake pad Fitting Centre Programme for independent garages. 

The Padtech brake pad brand, exclusively available to independent garages from Autoparts UK, Midwest Motor Factors and Monmore Auto Parts, has grown considerably since 2013, with continued investment in the brand to ensure its prominence in the automotive aftermarket. 

As part of the fitting programme initiative, garages receive eye-catching point of sales material, access to the latest in brake pad technology and enjoy generous discounts on the Padtech range. 

To be part of the fitting centre programme, garages need to buy the top 20 pads for just £275+vat. Fitting centres receive a banner and wall sign promoting their Padtech fitting centre status, air fresheners and checklists to assist motorists on braking inspections. A new YouTube video highlighting Padtech brand quality has also been produced.

The Padtech brand is manufactured by the world’s largest Original Equipment (OE) supplier of braking products. As a result, all pads are manufactured to OE specification and comply fully with European Regulation 90.

Rigorous testing procedures are performed on all products, including density, strength, friction, OE dynamometer and compression tests, guaranteeing quality and providing ease of fitment. 

Padtech brake pads come complete with Autoparts’ 20month / 20,000 mile warranty and complete traceability is assured as all pads are marked with the manufacturing batch and date information.

Currently, the range comprises more than 1500 references covering all makes of vehicle, details of which are available via MAM Software’s cataloguing system AutoCat.

Craig McCracken, Group Factor Manager, said: “We have seen Padtech become increasingly specified by garages as their first choice for brake pads and so the new fitting programme further supports this brand loyalty, promoting the quality of this safety critical component to motorists.”
