Huge demand for Schaeffler’s Back on Track workshop essentials packs

Schaeffler’s efforts to get garages ‘Back on track’ and open for business, as the population is encouraged to return to work while staying alert, has been enthusiastically welcomed across the whole of the UK and Ireland.

The company had well over 2,000 requests for its ‘Back on Track’ workshop essentials packs, which include a floor sticker and tape to mark out the reception and workshop area, personal PPE, some prominent A2 posters and mirror hanging air fresheners, within just a few days.

The first deliveries have already been received by grateful garage owners, and all stocks should have left Schaeffler HQ in Hereford over the next week.

Marketing Communications Manager, Jeff Earl, said: “We have had fantastic feedback for this initiative, not just from workshops, but right across the independent sector. Many are saying that it’s not just the contents in the pack that are a great help, but also the advice and direction on the included ‘safe workshop charter’ poster. As a result, they are more confident that their workshops look and ‘feel’ safe and professional to customers, which is exactly why we created the pack.”

Workshops that didn’t manage to secure one of the ‘Back on Track’ packs will be sent an A2 poster set, including the ‘safe workshop charter’ and two more striking health and safety posters. You can still request a poster set on the news page if you are quick, as more than half of the 3,000 sets available have already been claimed.
