Interview João Carlos Costa Padeiro, João Padeiro Unipessoal, Lda.

Hello João, please tell us a little bit about you. 

Hello there, my name is João Carlos Costa Padeiro. I am 34 years old and a self-employed mechanic in my own workshop João Padeiro, Unipessoal, Lda.

For how long are you working on vehicles?

I work on vehicles since I was 14 years old. As it has always been my passion, I started as early as possible to gain as many experience as possible.

Since when do you work with MEYLE Parts?

This year, we complete our 5th year working with MEYLE parts. From the beginning I was very satisfied with MEYLE and that is why we continue working with them. 

What is your favourite MEYLE part? What do you associate with MEYLE?

The steering and suspension range has a great reliability and quality. These characteristics are exactly what I associate with MEYLE: A brand, that is totally reliable and has products of good quality. 

How did you hear from the photoshooting and why did you participate?

I heard from it by our main material supplier and we decided to take part and use the opportunity to present our company accompanied by the good MEYLE brand.

Our slogan is „DRIVER’S BEST FRIEND“. Are you also the best friend of your customer? If so, why?

Yes, we are our customers best friend. We aim to take care of our customers as good and professional partners, so they become long-term customers for us.  

What do you do, when you are not at the garage working on cars?

In my free time I love to ride my motorcycle or be with family and friends.
