GS Yuasa takes charge with Automechanika product launches
GS Yuasa will launch its brand new YCX Smart Battery Charger and Maintainer range at next month’s Automechanika Frankfurt.
The world’s leading battery manufacturer will also showcase its industry leading Yuasa and GS automotive battery ranges and offer a preview of its new European online learning platform GS Yuasa Academy at the exhibition.
Global Japanese manufacturer GS Yuasa is over 100 years old and produces Yuasa, GS and GS Yuasa branded batteries. It will attend the exhibition, which is the biggest of its type for the automotive aftermarket in Europe, with a new look stand featuring the GS Yuasa livery.
In a world first, GS Yuasa will launch its new Yuasa YCX Smart Battery Charger and Maintainer range at the event. Exclusively developed by its experienced engineers, the four trade rated chargers, which can be used for charging motorcycle, car, commercial vehicle and leisure batteries on or off the vehicle, have been designed to extend battery life, maintain performance and provide ultimate reliability for vehicle technicians and consumers.
In another first, a preview of GS Yuasa Academy in German, Italian, Spanish and Swedish languages will be demonstrated. GS Yuasa Academy is the first comprehensive online battery training platform available. Featuring over 20 detailed training courses, it covers every step of a battery’s ‘journey’ – from leaving the shelf, through ongoing maintenance, to end of service life.
It is designed to help businesses revolutionise their battery offering by improving customer service, reducing warranty returns and maximising battery business revenue potential.
Visitors to the stand will be able to claim a free USB Smart Button which offers ultra-fast access to the Yuasa or GS online battery lookup systems fit.yuasa.com and fit.gs-battery.com. These are far more than just battery finders, they are the most powerful battery lookup resources available and are designed to save their 80,000-plus users time and money by allowing them to find the right battery and detailed fitting information quickly.
Andrew Taylor, managing director and CEO of GS Yuasa Battery Europe Ltd, said: “We are excited to be attending Automechanika Frankfurt and we can’t wait to welcome hundreds of visitors to our brand new stand.
“With the pause in large exhibitions we have really missed being able to meet customers, talk to the industry and demonstrate what makes us the world’s leading battery manufacturer, so this year’s event is going to be one of the most important exhibitions we attend.
“We have a lot of important launches, including our fabulous new YCX Smart Charger and Maintainer range – which we are confident will quickly become Europe’s number one choice for battery charging. We are also proud to preview the European versions of our award-winning online training platform GS Yuasa Academy.”
In addition to all of this the Yuasa YBX, GS and GS Yuasa automotive product ranges will be showcased. These are the widest product ranges of any manufacturer and offer unrivalled coverage of over 99.9 per cent of the European vehicle parc.
These OE quality ranges are trusted by technicians and customers for their unrivalled quality, reliability, and performance. Examples of Yuasa’s YBX Automotive, Super Heavy Duty, Leisure, Marine, Specialist and Garden batteries will be displayed alongside accessories such as battery analysers and the GS Yuasa Yu-Fit tool.
Automechanika Frankfurt takes place from 13th to 17th September. GS Yuasa’s stand can be found in hall 4.1 stand F31.
