MACS Recognizes Best New Products of 2020 Trade Show

A panel of independent members of the aftermarket trade press chose three new products to be recognized at the event.

Bergstrom

Recognized for Best Use of Technology in a new product was the eCoolPark no-idle A/C system from Bergstrom. The eCoolPark no-idle system is an electric A/C system that functions without the engine running. This functionality will allow users to work in comfort in their vehicles with the engine off. 

Aisin

Aisin was honored for creating the Most Service Friendly product with its new OEM water pump timing belt kits. AISIN takes pride in being the largest water pump supplier to vehicle manufacturers and combines OE matched components into one convenient kit for the aftermarket. The water pump timing belt kit contains the water pump with gaskets and timing belt along with the housing, hydraulic tensioner, idler and tensioner bearings where applicable. 

Cintas

The Most Innovative new product was the Cintas First Aid Cabinet. The judges chose this product because they believe every service and repair shop should have one for practical workplace safety. MACS members can save on Cintas products at www.cintas.com.
