The 2018 ADS (Association of Diesel Specialists) Latin American Meeting kicked off in Panama City on 29 April.

Over the five days of the event, 24 countries from all over the world participated and more than 200 professionals attended, which represents a 30% increase compared to last year’s edition. Furthermore this edition broke the attendance record, growing by 75% compared to 2017.

Among the participants was Lucas Diesel Systems, which made the most of the event to present its two new concepts to the sector: LUCAS DIESEL SERVICE, a network of multibrand diesel specialist workshops, and its new range of MULTIBRAND TESTING EQUIPMENT for diesel components.

As the main exhibitor, Lucas Diesel Systems had a large central stand, where visitors were able to see different samples of its reman products (pumps and injectors) and components, as well as all of its multibrand testing equipment for diesel specialists.

Lucas Diesel Systems also had the opportunity to develop an interesting programme aimed specifically at its distributors, in which it presented the Lucas Diesel Service project for the first time. As part of this, Óscar Villafranca, CEO of Lucas Diesel Systems, explained the history and uptake of the LUCAS brand across the world. Christian Gómez, Customer Service LAM, detailed the LUCAS DIESEL SERVICE concept and Francesco Covello, Product Manager, explained the characteristics of each of the items of multibrand testing equipment launched in the market under the Lucas brand.

In addition, certificates acknowledging the attendance of Lucas Diesel Systems distributors at the event were handed out and, at the stand itself, Christian Gómez and Francesco Covello gave a demonstration of how the different items of equipment work.

Now that it has concluded, looking back on the event, we are happy with the impressive reception the Lucas brand got from all the participants. We were additionally able to fulfil objectives and expectations, and this has motivated the whole Lucas Diesel Systems team to keep working on all of our exciting projects.
