NORCROSS, Ga. – Automotive repair professionals from across the Atlanta area attended the July 14 grand opening of a state-of-the-art “Garage Gurus” regional training center in Norcross. Garage Gurus is an innovative nationwide technical education network established by global vehicle components supplier Federal-Mogul Motorparts to help automotive technicians, shop owners, service writers and other front-line industry professionals keep pace with the latest vehicle technologies, the company said. The new training center, which will provide onsite, online and on-demand training and related support to the nearly 5,400 Greater Atlanta repair businesses, is the fourth of up to 15 locations scheduled to open this year across the U.S.

A division of Federal-Mogul Holdings Corp., Federal-Mogul Motorparts manufactures a broad portfolio of popular automotive replacement products – including ANCO wiper blades, Champion spark plugs, Fel-Pro gaskets, MOOG steering and suspension components, Sealed Power engine parts and Wagner and Ferodo brake products – that are specified and installed in thousands of North American repair businesses each day.

“Garage Gurus brings much-needed focus to the talented, hardworking professionals who help keep millions of consumers safe and secure behind the wheel,” said Dan Ninivaggi, CEO, Federal-Mogul Motorparts. “The demand for vehicle service has never been greater, with more than 200 passenger cars per U.S. repair bay. I believe it is our responsibility as a leading manufacturer to provide the technical support and other assistance these businesses need to keep pace with each new wave of vehicle technology.”

Accessing critical diagnostic and repair information and related skills-based training has long been a challenge for the nation’s nearly 220,000 automotive repair businesses. Garage Gurus answers this need through more than 100 onsite, online and on-demand courses taught by Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ 100-plus ASE-certified “Gurus.” Each course is offered in English and Spanish languages.

Automotive repair professionals toured the region’s Garage Gurus training center, located at 6690 Jones Mill Court in Norcross, for a first-hand look at the state-of-the-art diagnostic and repair equipment and other resources that will be used in each training course. They also inspected two of Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ Web-connected “Gurus-On-The-Go” product technology vans, which travel among regional repair shops providing technicians with problem-solving solutions, technical assistance and local training. In addition to the new training center in Norcross, Federal-Mogul Motorparts operates Garage Gurus facilities in Greater Chicago (Skokie, Ill.), Van Nuys, Calif., and the Bronx, N.Y. Three additional Garage Gurus locations – in Baltimore, Dallas/Fort Worth and Rancho Dominguez, Calif. – will open this week.
