Uni-Select’s annual motorsport themed trade show featured 64,000 square feet of products, equipment and bodyshop supplies.
Held at the Hotel Gouverneur in St-Hyacinthe, the annual event featured more than $25,000 worth of prizes, plus more than a few motorsport amusements. Among the favorites were two race car simulators which provided exhibitors with uninterrupted groups of customers, though Patrick Carpentier’s ChampCar attracted its fair share of attention.
In addition to the trade show event, Uni-Select also took the opportunity to present its manufacturers rep awards as selected by Uni-Select members. Sales representatives of the year were Marcel Longpre, NGK and Jean-Rene Galarneau, Tenneco, for the Boucherville DC and Quebec DC respectively. Category winners were Marcel Longpre, NGK, and Yvon Demers, Agence S. Carre (small volume); Emile Bergeron, Mevotech, and Jacques Bujold, Unitool, (medium volume); and Bob Benard, Dana, and Jean-Rene Galarneau, Tenneco (large volume).
