Mark Zachos at ETI Winter Tech Week

ETI Winter Tech Week

With DG Technologies’ trusted line of secure diagnostic and engineering tools, like VSI NxGen for cars and Beacon for Developers, company president Mark Zachos made it a priority to be at ETI’s annual Winter Tech Week.

Zachos was in Torrance, Calif., last week for the event, organized by the Equipment and Tool Institute (ETI) and the Japanese Automobile Manufacturers Association to communicate new information, technologies and tool requirements for servicing current models and future vehicles.

He said being at Winter Tech Week is beneficial to “stay current with vehicle maintenance technology including potential regulations both in the U.S. and abroad.”

The event each year gives attendees an opportunity to meet and collaborate with OEMs, engineers, service tool providers, regulators and designers.

The main focus for us at DG Technologies is to actively participate to ensure that our tools, equipment and information are available to repair shops by the time the new models hit the streets. Through OEM presentations, panel discussions and hands-on demonstrations, industry professionals discuss the upcoming service needs of new makes and models, and the changes necessary in the tool and equipment industry to meet those needs.

Current DG Technologies customers that participate include AVL, Burke Porter, Continental, Denso, Hino, Honda, Isuzu, Matco, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Mitsubishi Fuso, Nissan, Subaru (Fuji Heavy Industries), Suzuki Toyota and Kia.

DG Technologies supplies products to both vehicle manufacturers and aftermarket companies and the event is a great way to confirm that our products are out in front of any changes coming and to help confirm they work with all vehicles.

While he was in town for the event, Zachos was able to visit the American Honda Collection Hall at Honda’s U.S. headquarters in Torrance. “The new Honda Museum was outstanding,” Zachos said.

According to Motor Trend Magazine, the collection, which opened this fall after being stored for the last 20 years in an undisclosed warehouse and continually added to by American Honda staffers, “might be the best-worst kept secret in the California car scene.”
