Dana - LogoDana announced it was an exhibitor at the inaugural Automechanika Jeddah 2016, taking place Jan. 26-28 in Saudi Arabia. With its extensive product portfolio on-site, Dana educated attendees on its premium aftermarket Spicer and Victor Reinz technologies, including driveline and sealing solutions for light, commercial and off-highway vehicles.

“We weren’t sure what to expect from Automechanika Jeddah, since it’s in its first year, but we were very pleased with the event attendance and outcome of the tradeshow,” said Jan von Ungern-Sternberg, area sales manager for Dana Aftermarket. “Being able to have in-person interactions with current and prospective customers in that region proved to be invaluable. The significant amount of interest we received in our high-performing brands exceeded expectations, which was encouraging.”

More than 170 exhibitors from 27 countries were on-site for the trade exhibition, which took place from Jan. 26-28 at the Jeddah Center for Forums & Events in Saudi Arabia. With Saudi Arabia positioned as an emerging market that is quickly growing, Automechanika Jeddah was created to highlight key opportunities in the automotive aftermarket space. Manufacturers and distributors on-site presented a range of solutions, including repair and maintenance, parts and components, electronics and systems, tires and batteries and more. Dana will be participating at other upcoming Automechanika events in 2016, including Automechanika Istanbul from April 7-10; Automechanika Dubai from May 8-10; and Automechanika Frankfurt from Sept. 13-17.
