SGS at Automechanika. Moscow trade fair
SGS participated in the International Exhibition for Automotive Parts, Equipment and Service Suppliers “Automechanika. Moscow”, which took place on March 4-6. At the trade fair, SGS presented inspection, verification and certification services for automotive industry.
Matthias Popp, Director Automotive Services SGS Germany GmbH: “The automotive market in Russia is booming, key global producers have already established or are building own assembling sites here. In this connection, our supply chain services for import automotive equipment as well as quality control for production of original spare parts in the domestic market get particular relevance.
Besides, we see high interest of the Russian market players towards such a quality management tool as 2nd party audit under “mystery customer” format, when service level of motor retail outlet or repair workshop is to be evaluated by independent auditors. This is obviously due to the fact that with the rise in revenues Russian consumer grows more exigent vis-à-vis service quality, thus motivating the business to take preventive and corrective measures.”
Automechanika trade fair takes place in 11 countries. In Moscow, over 120 companies from 15 countries participated in the exhibition. Automechanika Moscow is officially supported by: Committee for Transport of the Russian State Duma, Moscow Government, Russian Union of Industrials and Entrepreneurs, Moscow Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Moscow Association of Entrepreneurs.
