MS Motorservice Asia Pacific presenting product highlights at Automechanika Shanghai

Fair debut for leading aftermarket player

(PresseBox) (Neckarsulm, ) Automechanika is being staged at the New International Expo Centre in Shanghai, China, from December 9 to 12, 2014. Exhibiting for the first time will be MS Motorservice Asia Pacific Co.Ltd. on a two-storey stand F 06 in hall W1.

"In attending Automechanika Shanghai we are demonstrating our capabilities as foremost engine aftermarket supplier in China. We'll be meeting representatives from the world's workshop equipment sector-an opportunity for us to cultivate existing contacts. Also very important for us is to forge new contacts especially within the Asian market," states Dennis Baumann, President of MS Motorservice Asia Pacific.

The company is showcasing a broad product spectrum including pistons and plain bearings of the KS Kolbenschmidt brand, a variety of electric and vacuum pumps of the Pierburg brand plus a number of new products. Another central and clearly visible motif is KSPG AG's new brand profile encompassing the Motorservice Group, which is responsible for the aftermarket business. Within this rebranded profile, the aftermarket specialist is one of three KSPG divisions and emphasizes with greater intent than until now its expertise as the subsidiary of an original equipment (OE) manufacturer. Under the corporate slogan "Our heart beats for your engine" Motorservice defines itself as a service partner in all matters relating to the engine, a company with a broad lineup of quality products and services.

This year, Automechanika Shanghai is aiming for a record almost 5,000 exhibiters and over 80,000 visitors. It is considered to be Asia's biggest trade fair for automotive parts, accessories, workshop equipment and after-sales services and represents an important platform for tapping China's growing aftermarket and workshop equipment sector.
