From under-the-hood to under-the-vehicle, you can experience the world of service and repair here. This area features six service bays that simulate a real shop and two training theaters for hands-on learning and demonstrations.

Plus, you’ll find a dedicated Tool & Equipment section and as well as a Tire section for this growing line of business. Completing the area and making it even more robust are an Alternative Fuel section, a Diagnostics/Telematics section and the Mobile Heat Transfer/Heating/Air Conditioning section.



Automotive Aftermarket Central features all of the inventory that retailers, service and repair professionals, and warehouse distributors need to meet customer demands and to keep cars on the road. Our robotics and Warehouse Equipment/Logistics section offers solutions for warehouses and warehouse distribution centers looking to streamline their operations.
