The opportunity to buy Volkswagen Group Genuine Tools & equipment is now available through your local TPS Centre.
For garages looking for the reassurance and quality control of using tools and equipment that comply with Volkswagen Group manufacturer specifications across all vehicle models, they now need only to call their local TPS centre and place their order.
Launched this summer, the new initiative provides garages with the opportunity to order tools and equipment from Volkswagen Group’s workshop equipment sales catalogue. Developed by the competence centre for workshop equipment within Volkswagen Group (K-AVO-RW), the sales catalogue stretches out across 890 pages – with tooling available for all Volkswagen, Audi, SEAT, Škoda, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles and Porsche Group brands.
This year’s updated catalogue offers around 490 new products to the year’s range, all designed to ensure that even the most complex technology can be serviced effectively and repaired efficiently.
The new additions to the range include various tooling and equipment for electric vehicles (EVS), a timely product expansion for those garages looking to cash in on the surge of ever increasing EVs entering into the UK car parc.
This includes six products for rapid charging of vehicles with direct and alternating current, as well as several tools for the first vehicles to be based on the modular electric drive matrix (MEB) – the ID.3 and ID.4. The development of this type of tooling falls in line with Volkswagen Group strategy to design tools compatible across different models to ensure the greatest possible protection for investment in future vehicles.
In addition to the new products showcased, the sales catalogue has also been boosted with some new user functionality designed to make the search for the required workshop equipment easier and more streamlined.
For instance, all main products are now linked with the associated accessories and replacement parts. By clicking on the corresponding button, it will take the user directly to the right page in the catalogue. In addition, all the products which have to be checked and calibrated on a regular basis are labelled, with the corresponding symbol taking the user to the current list of test equipment.
For more information on placing Genuine Tooling and equipment orders, please contact your local TPS Centre, which you can find using the Centre Finder.
