Andrew Page reward garages with “Give me a brake” campaign

Leading distributor of autoparts and workshop equipment, Andrew Page, has launched its “Give me a brake” campaign which will see garages across the UK win more than £100,000 worth of prizes if they choose Mintex brakes.

Open to all Andrew Page trade account holders, the campaign will run from April and feature a number of promotions throughout the year, with prizes varying from chocolate bars and race experience days to VIP Goodwood Revival tickets and even a BMW MINI.

By purchasing Mintex brake pads, discs and calipers through an Andrew Page distributor, any garage can qualify for the prizes, which will be available across the year through a number of competitions. With a mixture of instant, low-value wins and larger rewards for continued good performance, there are opportunities for all garages to win, regardless of their size.

The “Give me a brake” campaign will include instant rewards and ‘scratch to win’ opportunities upon order completion, as well as larger rewards for the top-performing garages. ‘Scratch to win’ prizes include VIP Goodwood Revival tickets and money off vouchers, while the larger rewards include a Palmer Race day track experience and a BMW MINI.

“We have a long-standing partnership with Mintex, and are proud to stock the product range based on the high-quality standards adhered to,” said Simon Mullin, sales and marketing director of Andrew Page. “This campaign is a great way to reward customers for buying Mintex products, and we are actively trying to get everyone involved.”

Nick Hayes, national account manager at Mintex added: “As a global leader in brake friction technology, we’re confident in the quality of our products which have been developed over more than 100 years. Over this time we have continued to evolve our products, but our commitment to safe braking has stood firm.”
