FLEX Training & Certification Day

Manufactured in Germany to exacting standards, FLEX Machines Polishers are used worldwide by professional detailers and car care enthusiasts alike. FLEX introduced their first machine polisher specifically for the automotive industry in 1987. Given their reputation, which is steeped in automotive history and engineering excellence, it is no surprise then that RUF Automobile GmbH has partnered with FLEX to use their PE14-2 Rotary Machine Polishers for finishing and refining the paintwork on their exclusive hand built cars.

Hosted at UF Studio, Brands Hatch, and delivered by Matt Back, FLEX authorised trainer, the FLEX Training & Certification Day is designed to introduce professionals to each polisher in the extensive range, including the standard, lightweight, and mini rotary polishers, standard and mini dual action polishers and the XC 3401 VRG, a forced rotation dual action polisher. Additionally, participants will have the opportunity to practice using FLEX’s newest innovative and award-winning cordless machine polishers, the XFE15 150 Cordless Random Orbital and the PE-150 Cordless Rotary.
