Valvoline Launches Annual Mechanics Month

Valvoline Launches Annual Mechanics Month | THE SHOP

Valvoline is kicking off its 4th annual Mechanics Month, a campaign to celebrate the impact of mechanics around the world, the company announced.

The month-long initiative will highlight the contribution of mechanics in more than 60 countries worldwide, the company said, and will celebrate the importance of mechanics as knowledgeable professionals who are critical to keeping engines running and people moving forward. Participating countries will show appreciation for industry professionals through social media, giveaways, paid advertising, and individual market-specific events to enhance consumer awareness.

“Behind every vehicle on the road is a trusted mechanic,” said Katie Reed Hurst, senior brand manager. “It’s their hard work, skill and relentlessness that keeps our world turning.”

Valvoline supports trusted mechanics around the world all year long through trainings, scholarship programs and business growth initiatives, but during the month of March, the brand looks for others to join in the celebration and support of mechanics, the company said. Participation in the campaign has grown from 15 countries to over 60 in 2022.

“The growth of this program each year is indicative of the appreciation that communities have for these skilled industry workers worldwide,” added Hurst. “This year, we are encouraging the world to give a heartfelt thanks to mechanics who stand poised to care for our vehicles no matter what changes in our world.”
