IAPONIKI, one of DENSO’s valued Greek distributors was present at the recent AUTOTEC EXPO 2023 in Athens between 29th September and 1st October, where the DENSO team and the all-conquering Toyota GAZOO Racing World Rally Championship winning Toyota Yaris joined them, and took the opportunity to offer a celebratory gift, on the occasion of IAPONIKI’s 50th anniversary

Having distinguished itself as a leading aftermarket business in both Greece and at international level many times during the intervening years, IAPONIKI invited its many customers and trusted suppliers to the event to join it to mark the notable occasion.

The modern and colourful stand attracted industry professionals from all over Greece and was divided into two main areas, one for workshop equipment and the other for the wide range of spare parts, naturally including DENSO. In fact, the star of this year's Rally Acropolis, the Toyota GR Yaris Rally Hybrid, resplendent in its DENSO livery, stole the show.

In addition to the WRC winning car, representing DENSO Greece in the stand’s DENSO dedicated corner, were Sales Representative, Yannis Frominakis and Sales Manager, Joep Barendse, as well as examples of several of the company’s premium quality products.

“We were delighted to be part of IAPONIKI’s anniversary celebrations and are proud to have been associated with such a respected distributor for many years,” said Yannis. “Reaching this significant milestone is a considerable achievement, particularly in the ultra-competitive automotive aftermarket, so we congratulate the team behind the business and wish them every success for the next 50 years.

“To mark the occasion and honour the company’s commitment to DENSO, we were pleased to be able present IAPONIKI’s Managing Director, Mr. Nikos Magopoulos, with a ceremonial katana sword, fittingly in front of another formidable weapon in the form of the Toyota Yaris WRC winning GR Hybrid rally car!”
