We are looking back at a more than successful AAPEX 2019, taking place from November 5-7, 2019, in Las Vegas Nevada. The whole North American TecAlliance Family teamed-up at our booth to present the latest developments of our well-known services for the automotive aftermarket.

“We couldn’t be more excited to show customers all our North-American Aftermarket brands under one roof at this year’s show”, said Jürgen Buchert, TecAlliance CEO. “The depth of our portfolio of well-known brands and industry-leading solutions creates diverse opportunities for our customers’ growth and success.” But we did not stop there. Parts of the German, Mexican as well as the Chinese TecAlliance family joined forces with the local team underlining our strength as a global automotive aftermarket data powerhouse. The message was pretty clear: We are the go-to partner for companies seeking the best solution possible for their home market as well as expanding their portfolio internationally.

Numerous visitors took great interest in our booth and dived deep into our well-known solutions such as the OptiCat WebCatalog or PARTCAT from JNPSoft. One of the major pain points for our international customers is the conversion between the two data formats ACES & TecDoc and we were very proud being able to showcase a very early version of a solution doing just that. Both our North American customers who want to expand globally into the TecDoc world as well as international customers entering the American market are really looking forward to the roll-out of our solution early 2020. “AAPEX 2019 really exceeded our expectations by far. Positioning our North American brands OPTICAT & JNPSoft under one umbrella really paid off for us”, said David Winter, EVP Sales & Marketing TecAlliance. “We are a powerfull group of companies and we’ll continue leveraging synergies the next year to extend our lead regarding global automotive aftermarket data solutions.” Jürgen Mehlis, EVP Solution & Platform Management, added “We really had a great week as team not just talking about but demonstrating TecAlliance as a global family. Everyone put in extra hours and a lot of attention to detail to make this event a success. In general, AAPEX is very important to us. Not only to meet our North-American customers but also to exchange with our global customer base as well as our shareholders about the ongoing internationalisation of our company as well as the industry as a whole.”

As Jürgen mentioned we were not on our own at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada. We were joined by our friends from Bosch, BorgWarner, Continental, Delphi Technologies, ElringKlinger, MANN+HUMMEL, MAHLE, NGK Spark Plugs, Valeo, Schaeffler & ZF. A big thank you goes out to the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association AASA for the great organisation of the whole event – see you next year!
