Prominent automotive aftermarket parts trade supplier Repco, has teamed up with mechanic.com.au in a partnership that is set to bring the platform to Repco trade account customers, allowing them to interact with over 15,000 other users.

Repco’s focus on support and development to professional workshops is further shown with this exciting partnership.

“The platform offers such a powerful tool for mechanics, helping them diagnose and problem solve problems with their customers’ cars faster, as well as helping to share knowledge and develop their careers. It is the ideal service to complement our market-leading digital workshop solutions portfolio, available to Repco trade account customers.”
