Delphi Technologies Aftermarket accelerates growth of steering and suspension portfolio to become full line supplier in 2020.
Almost 1000 new part numbers with plan to reach full line coverage in North America by next year to offer customers new profit opportunities.
The aftermarket steering and suspension program encompasses parts with industry-leading manufacturing and testing standards, plus accessories and expert-led training.
TROY, USA – September 4, 2019 – Delphi Technologies Aftermarket has launched 987 new part numbers in its North American steering and suspension portfolio and plans to reach full line coverage by end of first quarter 2020. This expansion enables distributors and repair shops to offer greater coverage in a fast-growing product line with significant parts proliferation, opening up new profit opportunities.
This launch helps double the size of the steering and suspension product line this year, for a total of more than 5000 part numbers. Following this trajectory, the company will continue launching new parts to reach 99 percent sales coverage by Q1 2020. “We know that for our customers, coverage and availability are key, and we are focused on answering those needs and helping grow their business through a strong partnership with us,” said Chad Smith, Vice President, Aftermarket, North America.
The new part numbers include control arms, tie rod ends, inner tie rods, sway bar links, ball joints, bushings, drag links, idler arms, pitman arms, trailing arms and more. Each part is developed, manufactured, and tested to meet industry-leading standards for OE performance, encompassing fit, form, and function. Delphi Technologies ensures steering and suspension parts withstand the same forces during testing as they will on the road. They are also subjected to extreme environmental conditions to prepare them for a long service life. “For us, exceptional quality is not a goal—it’s a requirement. When it comes to safety-critical parts like steering and suspension components, our customers can be confident in our strict manufacturing and testing standards,” continues Smith.
To strengthen customer confidence and trust, Delphi Technologies offers a full-service aftermarket solution that includes more than just the parts themselves. The proper accessories and hardware are also included when required. Beyond what comes in the box, Delphi Technologies also offers certified training courses on all things aftermarket, including a series on steering and suspension systems.
