Teamwork was the order of the day when a group of golfers from the Original Equipment Suppliers Aftermarket Association (OESAA) took part in the IAAF-BEN Company Team Golf Challenge.
Four players from members of OESAA – which promotes the benefits of fitting quality parts from original equipment (OE) suppliers – helped raise £555 for motor industry charity BEN by taking part in the second round of the competition which was held at The Forest of Arden Resort near Birmingham.
The Aylesford course provided some tough challenges and the eventual winners were the Round Towers Spares team, who were also the overall 2014 winners, finishing ahead of runners-up Shaftec Automotive Components.
OESAA team member Jeff Earl, Marketing Manager, Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket (UK) Ltd, said: “Although we did not manage to trouble the prize board, it was a great day out and more importantly we managed to raise funds for such a worthwhile charity as BEN.”
Members of OESAA are powering a new, innovative technical and hands-on training event for independent garages.
AutoInform Live – an event organised in conjunction with the UK’s leading technical trainer Frank Massey – aims to provide visitors with a ‘Hear it, See it and Touch it’ experience.
The interactive weekend event is being held on November 29 & 30 at the state-of-the-art GTG Training Academy in Wolverhampton where exhibitors will be able to carry out detailed, hands-on training on live-running vehicles up on ramps.
Any forward-thinking independent workshop or company wishing to attend the event should telephone 01772 201597 or visit www.autoinform.co.uk
