PCL gears up for the busiest event of the year

Following a successful first outing to Auto Trade Expo in Dublin last year, PCL is gearing up for what is now its busiest show of the year at the Citywest Exhibition Centre in Dublin on the 17th-18th October

This is the second Auto Trade Expo and, judging by the rave reviews following the 2014 show, it promises to be even bigger and better this year. PCL itself received excellent feedback from the trade only event, as well as an award nomination, so preparations are already underway to build on the momentum.

First priority will be selecting the best portfolio of products suitable for mechanics, technicians, apprentices and managers representing workshops, transport companies, bodyshops, tyre centres and motor factors from all over Ireland.

A great strength for PCL at Auto Trade Expo is the exhibition’s focus on interactive stands with real demos, as PCL always ensures its expert team are on hand to guide customers through products on display, enabling them to handle equipment and find out which tyre inflation products and tools will provide the optimum features and benefits for their individual applications.

Sales Manager, Gareth McGuigan, said: “PCL enjoys a strong brand name and reputation in Ireland, and we hope to see the stand buzzing with visits from new and existing customers. Last year there was huge interest in the high end Nitrogen generator and built-in inflator range, the new forecourt air tower design with coin-op facility, and the ever-popular air tool range, including the most popular tool over the 2 days – the new half inch cordless 18v lithium Ion, dual battery impact wrench. We are currently looking carefully at feedback and the marketplace in Ireland to ensure that end users get to see the right products again this time, and will be reassuring them that they continue to be manufactured in Sheffield to the same high spec for which PCL is respected world-wide.

“This is also a great opportunity to meet with our local distributers who can take direct orders of our products and talk through the product portfolio at leisure. We look forward to greeting our Irish partners and showing our support for the increasingly popular Auto Trade Expo, which has quickly established itself as a vital trade show for exhibitors and visitors alike.”

PCL is recognised as the global market leader in the design and manufacture of tyre inflation and compressed air products for industrial, petrol forecourt and automotive markets. PCL also has over 75 years of experience in developing sophisticated products to meet customer needs and the trusted “Made in Sheffield” brand is a familiar name in petrol forecourts, tyre shops and engineering workshops throughout the world.
