Leading industrial and automotive supplier, Schaeffler India Limited (BSE: 505790, NSE: SCHAEFFLER) today announced the flag-off of the second leg of REPXPERT Mobile Aftermarket Technical Training Van. The REPXPERT training van will cover 36 key cities over a period of 90 days. The van is a center of advanced knowledge in areas across transmission, engine, and chassis systems. The training van returns after its first successful run in 2019.
This time, the van will feature a free eye check-up campaign in all 36 cities for mechanics and garage workers, facilitated by pioneering social organization – Vision Spring. This enables Schaeffler to create access to cost-free eyewear to mechanics living in low socio-economic areas.
Debasish Satpathy, President, Automotive Aftermarket, Schaeffler India said, “Our REPXPERT Training Van is a pioneer approach to our initiative of up-skilling workshops and promote technical competencies among our mechanic partners. It will keep them ready for fast-paced future technology developments. This time we have added the eye check-up camp along with this van since we fully understand that Mechanics are exposed to continuous eye strain while fitting components. Through this initiative, we are humbled to create cost-free access to quality eye care.”
In October 2019, Schaeffler India took the first stride by launching the first mobile training center.
Our REPXPERT Training van has special focus on providing technical training on core Schaeffler products including Twin-Clutch Technology (2CT), Dual Mass Flywheel, Self-adjusting Clutch, Hydraulic Clutch release system, and Front End Accessories Drive System (FEAD System) as well as providing training on other product categories like Bearings, Shock Absorbers and Lubricants.
With this initiative, Schaeffler strives to make mechanics ready for future technology developments. Schaeffler plans to shortly release the REPXPERT application to help mechanics and garage workers with more information on various applications, product types and fitment methods.
