Akebono has launched a new program for installers, the “Akebono Brake Experts Alliance,” to drive Akebono brake business to shops and ensure quality repairs in the process.

By aligning with Akebono brakes, member shops benefit from advanced brake technology and high-quality brake parts that fit right the first time. With this combination, they deliver expert repairs, reduce comebacks, boost profits, and keep customers happy and coming back for more service.

There are two levels of membership, each of which extend the value of the program, and help designate shops as brake experts:

• The basic membership includes an exclusive Akebono Brake Experts Alliance member certificate, two Akebono Brake Experts hats, mirror hang tags, paper floor mats, and a choice of two promotional items (poster, countermat, bay banner, or brochures and brochure display).

• The premium membership includes all of the above package, plus two additional hats, an exclusive Akebono clock and a $25 rebate when four Akebono Ultra-Premium pad sets are purchased from their distributor.

Plus, both packages entitle members to a complimentary set of Akebono Pro-ACT brake pads, so they can witness the quality product, first-hand.

To sign up, interested brake installers can visit www.AkebonoBrakes.com for more details.
