AEROKLAS FITMENT CENTRES LAUNCHING ACROSS AUSTRALIA

Three Centres are already in operation with more to come soon

New Aeroklas Fitment Centres are being established across the country right now as the place where customers of Aeroklas, Flexiglass and Bocar customers can bring their vehicles and connect with bespoke services and upgrades on-site.
Centres are already up and running in Kewdale and O’Connor in West Australia and in Brendale in Queensland, with more on the way.
Aeroklas also has two satellite Flexiglass Branches located in Silverwater (New South Wales) and Tullamarine (Victoria) as part of its national support network.
The new Fitment Centres are designed to provide support and increased capability for customers across many different categories.
“These Centres and Branches are designed to make life as easy as possible for our customers. With this in mind, we plan to roll out Aeroklas Fitment Centres in all major cities across the country in the future,” Aeroklas Australia General Manager, Greg Kelly, said.
“All three brands have long histories in the Australian automotive market and are keen to provide their customers with a more convenient and immediate service that supports 21st-Century road users.
“Whether you are a tradie in search of reliable services and add-ons for your LCV (light commercial vehicle), or the manager of an LCV fleet and you need enterprise-level support, our fitment centres are for you.
“The centres are designed to provide a one-stop-shop for customers in search of LCV, SUV and pickup services they can rely upon. They will find everything they need in one location, reducing downtime and increasing process efficiency.
“We also offer services and support to car dealers, other business and industrial customers, or simply to individuals.”

The Fitment Centres will offer a range of services, including:
• End-to-end full vehicle fit-outs.
• Bespoke and tailored product and service packages.
• Vehicle modifications.
• Compliance services and upgrades.
• GVM upgrades.
• Purchase and installation across the expanded product range.
• Vehicle protection and security solutions.
• Storage solutions.

Three big brands under the one roof
By bringing together the recognisable automotive brands of Aeroklas, Flexiglass and Bocar, the new Aeroklas Fitment Centres bring together more than 150 years of aftermarket auto accessories innovation experience under one roof.
Flexiglass was established in Western Australia and created the first fibreglass vehicle canopy way back in 1956 and since has grown to become a true powerhouse of the industry.
Bocar was established on the Gold Coast in 1970 and boasts a long and proud history of working with OEMs, specialising in aluminium tray solutions and recently launching a brand-new Stockade series of Bull Bars, ready-made for getting your vehicle ready for tough working conditions.
The Aeroklas team has been producing premium plastic automotive accessories for over 35 years and boasts a great history in developing innovative products to service a growing retail network in Australia and a global brand presence.
“The Flexiglass brand is one of the oldest in the automotive industry and this transition is the next chapter in a long and storied history,” Aeroklas Australia Head of Customer Experience, Matt Logan, said.
“The Aeroklas Fitment Centres will see products from Flexiglass, Aeroklas and Bocar come together for viewing, purchase and fitment all in the one location.
“By combining the products and years of experience of all three brands, our customers will benefit from an enhanced service experience moving forward.”

Local support with a global presence
Aeroklas Australia says it has invested significantly in local, market-leading Australian brands to create a premium destination and service-based experience which can deliver a wide range of aftermarket auto accessories solutions to customers.
With a core brand portfolio consisting of TJM, Flexiglass and Bocar, Aeroklas Australia aims to be the leading aftermarket accessories and fitting destination, for light commercial and fleet vehicles.
Aeroklas and its portfolio of brands bring innovation, R&D expertise and a global OEM pedigree to the light commercial vehicle market. Aeroklas Australia has invested significantly in the Australian automotive market with new premises and the creation of jobs.  
“Our brands are strong and the investment in R&D, product innovation, IT and an efficient distribution centre demonstrates our long-term commitment to our industry,” Greg said.
“Our premises have been specially designed to provide staff with the best working conditions and include a modern R&D laboratory, new manufacturing equipment, paint booths and modern staff amenities.”
Globally Aeroklas began operations in 1996 and is now a leading manufacturer and exporter of high-end automotive accessories.
Aeroklas distributes products in over 100 countries with international customers including some of the largest OEM manufacturers in the world including Ford, Honda, Isuzu, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Toyota, GM, and Volkswagen.

A new digital presence
To support these exciting new Centres, Aeroklas has also launched a new website which you can view online now.
The www.aeroklasfitment.com.au website has been designed to support the all-new Aeroklas Fitment Centres with all the digital support customers could need to get the very best out of these new service hubs.
“After the Fitment Centre concept was born, we also realised quickly that a forward-thinking service point like this one requires the right approach to digital support,” Matt said.
“Therefore, we opted to create a whole new website for the Fitment Centre, so that customers have an online resource via which to book appointments, learn about our services, compare products, or simply learn more about what we offer.”
The new website is the digital arm of the Aeroklas Fitment Centre rollout, allowing visitors to complete a number of different tasks, including:
• Find up-to-the-minute pricing on products, excluding installation. 
• Submit a quote request to access complete and reliable pricing for their project.
• Request to book an appointment with a Aeroklas Fitment Centre expert.
• Connect directly with qualified Aeroklas personnel via the site’s contact channels.
• Learn all about the latest products and services in the Aeroklas range.
• Discover more about the Fitment Centres in their area.
“From the beginning, we knew that we did not just want to offer a pretty set of pictures and some snappy advertising; we wanted to offer genuine support and functionality to our customers across Australia,” Matt said.
“This is what we mean when we say that the website is the digital arm of the new fitment centres – customers can begin the service process remotely, via their computer or mobile device.”
