The second MEI Tech Tour, a project conceived by our Group in collaboration with MEI, the British company world leader in the production of brake calipers, distributed by Roberto Nuti Spa exclusively for Italy, took place in recent days. After the experience of the first tour, which took place in northern Italy in October, we decided to repeat the positive experience by visiting some important customers in the south.
Leonardo Borghi (Roberto Nuti Group Sales Manager Italy) accompanied mr. Lex Randall, Technical Manager, and Mr. Steven Shaw, UK Sales Manager at MEI, at the following locations:
- Euroveicoli – Naples
- Casertano spare parts – Caserta
- Air, Auto Industrial Parts – Catania
“We decided to undertake this second series of meetings after the positive feedback followed at the first Mei Tech Tour – explains Leonardo Borghi -, with the same purpose, to present, in addition to a new product, also an innovative idea for the positioning of the brake calipers in the spare parts market “.
Today there are new and original brake calipers and regenerated brake calipers. MEI brake calipers, distributed by the Roberto Nuti Group exclusively for Italy, are new and with qualitative performances identical to those supplied to the first plants.
“However – continues Borghi – their price is much closer to the regenerated than the original ones. A new product accompanied by a two-year warranty, presented at a more than attractive price and without any security for the return of the carcasses, are the strong points on which the MEI project develops. ”
“It was an absolutely positive initiative – says Nunzio Selmi, Commercial Air Manager (Auto Industrial Parts) of Catania -, for the day with the MEI technicians we have called 18 workshops for a total of about thirty people. The product was present and the explanation of the MEI technicians and Leonardo Borghi was exhaustive and effective, so as to have the first sales results already in the following days. For the occasion we also presented the best Roberto Nuti Group and SABO brand products, this too was an interesting and interesting moment “.
