Garage Equipment Suppliers
Garage Equipment Suppliers import measuring, maintenance, and repair equipment as well as machinery for car repair shops, tyre dealers, and garages. The share of services in the business has been in a clear incline in the 2010s. Its demand is directed at the repair shop milieu, risk management, undisturbed operations, safety, and environmental expertise. Training and the strongly grown automotive data management have become new sections of operations in the last few years. The market development of the industry imitates the changes in the car trade and saw clear growth in the 2000s; however, the recession turned the figures into a decline.
Leading garage equipment suppliers in Finland are members of the Garage Equipment Suppliers section. The section works in cooperation with different authorities in projects such as the calibration of occupational safety, MOT, and repair shop equipment. The section has actively developed the marketing of the industry through, for instance, exhibition functions.
The industry is international, and the companies also operate in Russia and the Baltic Countries as well as participate in the development of the rules of EU market surveillance in cooperation with the authorities.
Managing Director Ilkka Eriksson from Tecalemit Oy is the Chairman of the section and Heikki Ojanperä is its representative.
