Remy International has introduced 76 new part numbers so far in 2015, adding coverage for 7 million vehicles in operation, with a concentration on imports.
“We are dedicated to providing our aftermarket partners the coverage they’ll need to serve their customers,” said Dave Nichols, senior vice president, aftermarket sales. “We have leveraged our experience as a global Tier One OE supplier to bring better import coverage to our aftermarket customers.”
New part numbers include starters and alternators for late-model vehicles from BMW, Audi, Hyundai, Kia, Infinity, Volkswagen, Mitsubishi, Opel, Mazda, Subaru and Honda. Remy also added to its domestic portfolio this year, with new part numbers and increased coverage for GM, Ford and Chrysler vehicles.
Remy provides aftermarket retail stores, warehouse distributors and independent installers with premium-quality starters and alternators, and selected multiline products, including steering components and CV axles. The company also is an OE supplier of starters, alternators, electric motors, and vehicle electrification technologies to global vehicle manufacturers.
“We believe in making parts available to our aftermarket customers before they need them,” Nichols said. “We predict through our market analytics that they’ll need these parts soon, and we intend to make sure they have them when they need them. We leverage our original equipment experience to provide OE-grade products, and we are proud to be first to market with them. We’ve found that this approach helps our customers’ sales. To us, this is proof of our commitment to being true partners with our aftermarket customers around the world.”
