Readers of Munich-based trade magazine “PROFI Werkstatt” have voted Continental the best workshop brand for the third such poll in succession.

      Continental on course as a solutions provider

Continental’s broad product portfolio, digital solutions and reliable service offering support fleet managers and drivers in their day-to-day operations. Added to which, Continental makes information and training on the correct use of the products a priority. “Our customer service people are on hand for our partner workshops when they’re looking for advice and training. We maintain close dialogue with our dealers and their workshops, and carry over credible requests and ideas directly into the development of new products,” explains Schmitt.

      Award recognizes the most popular brands

      Since 2014 PROFI Werkstatt magazine has regularly asked its readers to name their preferred brands in the commercial vehicle workshop sector. The “Beste PROFI Werkstatt-Marke” [Best PROFI Werkstatt Brand] poll has developed into one of the most significant workshop-related brand awards. For the latest survey, organizers HUSS-VERLAG GmbH in Munich recorded 7,400 participants in 24 categories. The categories cover the most important products and services for workshop professionals and range from A for Achsmessanlagen [wheel alignment equipment] to Z for Zubehör [accessories]. Workshop managers in the commercial vehicle sector were asked to give their opinions on the brands they use in their day-to-day work. Led by gut feeling and experience alike, PROFI Werkstatt readers assessed the image, quality and service of the brands involved. All the details on the “Beste PROFI Werkstatt-Marke 2021” reader’s poll can be found in issue 3 of PROFI Werkstatt. A picture gallery and video messages from the award winners have been posted at
