In fact, we have upgraded not only our motor oils according to the highest quality standards of the German automotive industry but also our motor-oil containers. Our booth has been created by an external design agency. We are thus introducing design combined with performance in the motor-oil industry as a new differentiating element.”

Another company, Australian manufacturer Fortron, which now exports to 14 countries and already exhibits at Automechanika Johannesburg, wants to make its products better known in Europe and has entered its ‘Forton Ozone Generator’ for the Automechanika Innovation Award in the Service Station & Carwash category. Michael Csordas, General Manager International Business of Fortron Automotive Treatment says, “The Fortron Ozone Generator has been specifically designed for use within automotive service centres as a value added service to remove odours caused by bacteria from the vehicles air conditioning system and from spillages within the vehicle. The Ozone machine has been designed to be robust, user friendly and specifically designed to direct ozone to the source of the problem. The result is a cost effective, safe way of eliminating smells and bacteria from vehicle interiors, providing safe and healthy motoring.”

We intend to continue to build on our successful sales relationships with our current international stockist, whilst also looking to attract new distributors and stockists from across the world. Flowcontrol – the innovation for 5 litre oil delivery allows you to control the flow into your engine filler point without the use of a funnel, resulting in less spillage and

considerably reducing the risk of contamination. By placing the bottle over the oil filler and opening the twist-grip tap, oil flows smoothly into the engine, while air is allowed into the bottle via a special air supply tube. Opening the tap further increases the flow – when fully open 5 litres can be dispersed in 30 seconds,” says David McCann, Export Manager (Europe), Millers Oils.
