If you were to walk through global manufacturer Tenneco Inc.’s massive emissions control facility in Harrisonburg, VA, you would see premium Walker aftermarket products and original equipment parts being produced under the same roof and in adherence to Tenneco’s consistently strict quality standards.
Because parent company Tenneco designs Walker exhaust components, systems and catalytic converters with the same precision and fit as its OE parts, your shop can compete with dealerships and even the best foreign car specialists by offering OE-style technologies for most vehicles especially as today’s vehicle owners are more likely to ask for replacement components that are as good as the originals.
Seasoned undercar technicians know that many aftermarket exhaust products add unnecessary time and hassle to the repair because they don’t precisely match OE routing. (In fact, some aren’t even close.) To truly bring “OE” into your shop, the parts you install must equal the performance and reliability of the parts that your customers could buy from their car dealers. It means high-quality mufflers, converters, pipes and systems that fit just like the originals the first time and every time. It means technologies that will deliver the same or better flow and sound characteristics than the originals. It means products that are engineered to perform better and last longer than standard “aftermarket” parts, thanks to superior designs and construction. And it increasingly means parts that are manufactured by the same suppliers who are leaders in the OE marketplace. Walker brand products meet these criteria.
Quality Plus Coverage
Another key part of the Walker brand’s OE-quality advantage is its ultra-aggressive approach to expanding application coverage for both foreign-nameplate and domestic vehicles.
During the past four years, Walker has stood alone in introducing more than 1,600 new part numbers for import and domestic passenger car applications. This sizeable investment is a clear demonstration that Walker and Tenneco are committed to the long-term success of your shop.
The winners in tomorrow’s emissions control market will be shops that can demonstrate a clear quality advantage over traditional aftermarket technology. By relying on the Walker brand, you can be one of those shops.
