ECP set for future

Euro Car Parts’ believes its new training programme, Euro Academy, covers all areas needed to service vehicles of the future.

Martin Gray, CEO of Euro Car Parts, said the business had invested ‘substantive time and resource’ in developing Euro Academy and is ‘confident that it encompasses everything a workshop will need to service alternatively fuelled vehicles’.

Martin said, ‘We are facing a watershed moment for the industry and workshops need to consider what training and equipment to invest in, not just to survive but, much more importantly, to thrive. There have never been more opportunities for those that are prepared to embrace the future and set the direction and standards for the industry.’

He added, ‘Make no mistake, the vehicle revolution will be here quickly. The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) estimates that, by 2030, electric, connected and autonomous vehicles could create an additional 320,000 jobs in the UK. With that comes opportunities that the best of us will thrive upon.

‘As a business, we want to support independent garages to make sure that they have everything they need to make the most of this new market.’

As a result, Euro Car Parts has unveiled the Workshop Solutions brochure which includes training, financial planning support, health and safety, responsible waste disposal and maintenance of equipment services.
