Remy Adds New Aftermarket Light-Duty Parts Coverage

Remy-LogoRemy International Inc., manufacturer of Remy light-duty starters and alternators as well as Delco Remy heavy-duty starters and alternators, has introduced 31 new light duty part numbers for the first quarter of 2015.

These starters and alternators are for model years 2013 and 2014, adding coverage for 2.1 million vehicles in operation. Remy says it has substantially strengthened its late-model import coverage: 1.3 million vehicles are imports, including VW, Hyundai, Kia, Mazda, Subaru and Honda. In addition, 800,000 are domestic, including Chevrolet, GMC, Ford, Cadillac, Buick, Chrysler and Jeep.

“Our first priority is to be a valuable partner to our customers,” said Remy Senior Vice President for Aftermarket Sales, Dave Nichols. “Analyzing and anticipating their inventory requirements is a big part of what we do. We’re introducing late-model applications because we know they’ll need them to meet the ever-increasing demands of their end-customers. We plan to double the number of new products released in the second quarter.”

Nicols added that, in 2014, Remy added 206 new light-duty part numbers, providing coverage for 52.9 million vehicles.
