My general impressions about MIMS Automechanika Moscow 2015 are very good. The show has developed and improved a lot comparing to the previous edition. We are very glad about the number and about the quality of visitors comparing to last year. Apart from prescheduled meetings with our partners, we had a lot of new visitors at our stand, who were really interested in our products – they have been asking very professional questions and were interested in cooperation.
We have presented our new products at the show, the highlight was our new drilled brake discs of the highest BREMBO quality, designed especially for Aftermarket. We produce these discs for the modern cars of leading world brands and also for LADA. It is symbolic that the premiere took place in the year of the 40th anniversary of cooperation Brembo with racing world. We have chosen MIMS Automechanika Moscow as a platform to present our new products for the Russian market, as it’s a key event for the industry specialists who are coming here from all over Russia.
