The Tankstation Vakbeurs kicks off. Here’s a few tips
Today is the first of two days of the Dutch trade show Tankstation Vakbeurs in Utrecht. Here’s a few essential stops on your route, as a visitor. From roasted apple-scented foam to intelligent vacuuming.
Stipt Polish Point
Stipt Polish Point is a car renovation company that brings new life to oldtimers, classics and sports cars again. The knowledge gained over the past fifteen years has compiled into an extensive range of Stipt products. “A series of high-quality cleaning and maintenance products for correct processing and an optimal end result. Products that we not only use ourselves but also offer through our webshop and through a large network of Stipt resellers.”
Stipt Polish Point would like to tell visitors to the Tankstation Vakbeurs more about this. “After all, the line of Stipt products is excellent as a complementary assortment within any shop.”
You will find Stipt Polish Point in the Innovation Square, on booth number 3.02.203.

“Vacuum efficiently and make money? The introduction of the latest ERGOX software version Generation 3 makes vacuuming more efficient,” says ERGOX. With their latest version, operators have access to energy management, pipe and hose direction, turbine balance system, data communication module and POS indication per vacuum station.
For the car wash customer, the ERGOX Kiosk offers additional features for a fee. Including: correct tire pressure, refill windshield wiper fluid, use window cleaner and interior cleaner with a glove and apply tire cleaner and gloss. The kiosk also features a glove dispenser, a payter for payment and debit card top-up and an interactive display with explanations for use. Everything is controlled from a central master unit.
ERGOX can be found at exhibition booth 3.02.206.
Theme days are increasingly successful within the car wash industry. For example, recently the well-attended Halloween events took place in various car washes. “The holiday season offers car wash operators yet another opportunity to surprise customers,” says Koch-Chemie. “That is why we are offering Active Foam X-Mas again this year. This active foam has a winter perfume of roasted apple with cinnamon and can be used as foam and shampoo in all types of car washes and wash boxes.”
Also featured at the show is the new Shield & Gloss Wax. “This wax fills in micro-scratches and offers a long-lasting high gloss with extreme water-repellent effect. Its lightning-fast water breaking and microbead-free drying make the product extremely suitable for high-tempo applications in busy car washes. Shield & Gloss Wax has also been specially developed to greatly reduce deposits in pipes so that significantly fewer cleaning times are required,” says Koch-Chemie.
Koch-Chemie will be present at booth 3.06.303.
“The development of charging stations has advanced tremendously in recent years, but the payment system around charging stations has not changed,” said TSG Solutions. “This brings great challenges to meet the European requirements around charging stations.” For this reason, TSG is introducing a new and progressive product called ChargePay. In which the starting point is that all payment options must be possible.
“From a European perspective, there is an obligation to accept all payment cards, including debit and credit cards. In addition, the customer should see a transparent price before starting the charging session, this to avoid surprises afterwards. The ChargePay can be easily linked to practically all charging stations from different suppliers. The connection is made in the cloud so no data cable needs to be provided between the charger and ChargePay.”
TSG can be found at booth 3.04.201.
Turtle Wax Pro
“By choosing Turtle Wax Pro, business owners demonstrate their commitment to providing their customers with the highest quality and most recognizable products,” said Turtle Wax Pro, which will also be present with a booth at the Tank Station Trade Show. “Turtle Wax Pro is a line of powerful, hyper-concentrated car wash chemicals that increase customer satisfaction and profitability, while providing a variety of brand marketing tools to promote the company.”
“Our team is looking forward to traveling from Canada to the Netherlands to meet with both operators and distributors at the show,” the company concludes.
