Automechanika Frankfurt enters into an agreement with the Association of Diesel Specialists

23 Aug 2022

Automechanika Frankfurt has further expanded its international network of associations by entering into a cooperation with the US-American Association of Diesel Specialists (ADS).

“We are delighted to have gained a new international partner from the traditional automotive aftermarket for this September’s event. This further underscores Automechanika Frankfurt’s significance as an international industry meeting place, and it is especially important for us as it helps us achieve our goal of expanding our network in the growing US market,” said Olaf Mußhoff, Director of Automechanika Frankfurt.

Based in the USA, the Association of Diesel Specialists represents companies worldwide that specialize in providing service for injection systems in the diesel industry. Many of the association’s members are exhibitors at Automechanika Frankfurt, the leading international trade fair for the automotive aftermarket. The association is taking advantage of this to get all of its members together in the same place following an extended break caused by the pandemic, and to establish new contacts in the European market.

“ADS is thrilled to partner with Automechanika,” stated Scott D. Parker, CEO of Association of Diesel Specialists. “By working together with Automechanika, ADS will be able to provide our many international members a unique networking opportunity in Frankfurt. This is a win-win-win situation for ADS, our members and Automechanika.” On 15 September 2022 from 5 PM to 7 PM, the association will be holding a reception for all of its members under the motto ‘ADS Get Re-Acquainted’. With prior registration, interested parties will be able to learn more about the association and its mission.

The Association of Diesel Specialists (ADS) is the world's leading trade association in the diesel industry and has a particular focus on service for fuel injection systems. The association’s members are independent workshops specializing in diesel fuel injection, drive-in, governor and turbocharger service, as well as schools offering training programs for diesel mechanics. The members also include original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), as well as the manufacturers and retailers of replacement parts and other related equipment.
