2017 Australian Auto Aftermarket Innovation Award winners

The Australian Auto Aftermarket Expo opened this morning at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre with a grand breakfast to celebrate the winners of the 2017 Australian Auto Aftermarket Innovation Awards.

Organised by the Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association (AAAA), the Innovation Awards recognise creative new products and marketing strategies in the highly competitive auto aftermarket. More than 340 industry colleagues attended the event to cheer the winners.

AAAA Executive Director Stuart Charity said the AAAA Board of Directors congratulate the Innovation Award winners and thank all the businesses for their 173 entries in the competition. “The Australian aftermarket is recognised internationally for its high technology, high quality products and services,” he said.

“Creativity and technology are major drivers of the auto aftermarket. The impressive list of 2017 Innovation Awards winners reflects the strong commitment these companies have to excellence.

“The Australian Auto Aftermarket Innovation Awards are unique in Australia and are another successful product of AAAA industry leadership. They are run in tandem with the Expo every two years, so we invite all Australian aftermarket businesses to begin planning now for an entry in the 2019 Innovation Awards,” said Stuart Charity.
