Delphi Aftermarket Announces Portfolio Expansion At AAPEX


Recommended Posts

Delphi Technologies Aftermarket, a brand of BorgWarner Inc., will showcase its latest technologies at AAPEX (Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo).

The event takes place Nov. 2-4 at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas. Delphi is exhibiting in booth 5027.

At the show, visitors to the company booth can learn firsthand about launches, product-line expansions and electrification-program updates.

“By expanding our product lines and launching new parts, we’re demonstrating our investment to meet our main objective: growing our customers’ businesses and accelerating additional revenue opportunities for distributors and garages in North America,” said Malcolm Sissmore, Delphi Technologies Aftermarket sales and marketing vice president. “We are also very excited about our technical partnership with Alpine F1 Team and want to share more with our customers. The Delphi Technologies’ branded logo will appear on Alpine F1 Team’s garage environment and commercial assets and on the A521 car at selected Grand Prix.”

New Fuel-Tank Cleaning Tool Debuts at Show

Delphi Technologies Aftermarket continues as a fuel-handling market leader with a full-service solution of reliable parts and expert customer support, according to the company.

“Combining the benefits of original-equipment (OE) technology with performance and durability engineered specifically for the aftermarket, the company maintains a robust portfolio and continues to innovate in the category,” Delphi said in a news release.

The new fuel-tank cleaning tool, the FC02, is designed to efficiently clean a hard-to-drop fuel tank before installing a new pump module. Installing a new fuel pump in an old fuel tank without a way to effectively clean that tank presents a challenge for technicians who want to avoid premature wear or failure of the new pump from debris and contamination.

The FC02 fuel tank tool from Delphi Technologies Aftermarket is an easy and quick solution that allows technicians to maximize customer satisfaction and revenue opportunities from high quality fuel maintenance services, according to the company.

Enhanced Core Aftermarket Portfolio

Steering and suspension is another significant area of portfolio expansion for guests visiting the booth to discover more about. Delphi Technologies Aftermarket has added 400 SKUs in 2021, now offering more than 8,000 part numbers in the catalogue.

“The company is committed to continuous product-line expansion to provide a comprehensive portfolio including first-to-market control arms, tie rods, inner and outer tie-rod ends, sway-bar links, ball joints, bushings, drag links, idler arms, pitman arms, trailing arms and more,” Delphi said in a news release.

Delphi Technologies Aftermarket also has expanded its engine-management portfolio, adding more thann 350 part numbers in the last 18 months. Maintaining full-line coverage for ignition coils and MAF sensors, Delphi  now offers more than 2,000 engine-management SKUs.

Delphi Technologies Aftermarket’s engine-management products are backed by stringent OE development and product validation methods for reliable and accurate OE performance, the company noted.

Electrification for the Aftermarket

Delphi Technologies Aftermarket’s pioneering product portfolio benefits from BorgWarner’s strategic  business investments to globally expand its electrification capabilities, allowing aftermarket customers access to OE-quality replacement parts.

Automotive power electronics help in the efficient conversion, conduction and control of electric power in hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and electric  vehicles (EVs). At AAPEX, the company will showcase the latest power electronics for the aftermarket: Delphi Technologies Aftermarket’s mode 2 charging cables for Chevy Volt and other EV models.

Diagnostics

A full-service solution includes diagnostics as an important step to a reliable repair. Visitors to the Delphi Technology Aftermarket booth “will find world-leading Hartridge test benches and see their advanced capabilities firsthand.”

The company will showcase the Excalibur GDi Master at AAPEX, which gives technicians the ability to test gasoline direct injection and port fuel injection up to 250-bar pressure, in test cycles as little as five minutes. Also present at the show, Delphi will display the Sabre CRi Master – a compact, all-makes diesel CR injector test bench packed with advanced functionality for injector testing and injector coding.

      Genuine Parts Co. (GPC) reported full-year 2023 sales of $23.1 billion, a 4.5% year-over-year increase.
      Net income was $1.3 billion, or $9.33 per diluted share, an increase of 12.3%.
      Full-year net sales in the Automotive Parts Group, which includes NAPA Auto Parts, were $14.25 billion, up from $13.67 billion in 2022.
      Fourth-quarter automotive sales were up nearly 1% to $3.5 billion.
      While GPC’s international automotive businesses posted positive sales growth in local currency, the U.S. automotive segment saw a dip in sales, GPC President and COO Will Stengel noted during the company’s Feb. 15 conference call.
      “In North America, while results fell short of our expectations, we remain focused on our strategic initiatives and continue to make solid progress,” GPC Chairman and CEO Paul Donahue said during the call. “We’ve undertaken a comprehensive review of the NAPA business to identify key issues, and we have taken action to improve the performance at NAPA. We are confident we are focused on the right initiatives to positively impact our performance in the quarters ahead.”
      Coinciding with the release of its full-year and fourth-quarter 2023 financial results, GPC said the company is launching a global restructuring “to better align the company’s assets and further improve the efficiency of the business.”
      The restructuring includes a voluntary retirement offer in the United States, along with “a rationalization and optimization of certain distribution centers, stores and other facilities,” according to the company.  
      Through the restructuring, GPC said it expects to realize approximately $20 million to $40 million of savings in 2024, and approximately $45 million to $90 million on an annualized basis. The company also expects to incur costs of approximately $100 million to $200 million related to the restructuring efforts in 2024 and will report the restructuring costs as a non-recurring expense.
      “The primary objective of the global program is to continue to simplify and streamline our operations consistent with our overall business strategy,” Stengel explained during the conference call. “When we simplify, we increase the speed of local service, deliver operational productivity, improve the efficiency of our teams and reduce our overall cost to serve.”
      Stengel noted that the restructuring initiative “is a similar playbook to our previous GPC program implemented in fall 2019 that delivered positive results.”
      “Aspects of the restructuring are already in flight, and some will take place in the months ahead,” Stengel added.
      Focus on NAPA
      Stengel talked at length about efforts to revitalize GPC’s NAPA Auto Parts business.
      GPC has identified three areas of improvement for NAPA: improving fill rates in key product categories, “operational rigor in our stores” and capitalizing on commercial growth opportunities, Stengel explained.
      Adjustments to “certain key suppliers to improve fill rates” boosted fourth-quarter “category trends,” Stengel said, adding that “we’re encouraged by the positive momentum.”
      “Second, our in-store service levels measured by on-time delivery to customers have significantly improved as a result of increased focused on last-mile operating disciplines,” Stengel said.
      Stengel noted that efforts to improve commercial sales growth are “ongoing.” GPC recently appointed Tom Skov to the newly created role of executive vice president, sales & store operations, North America.
      “He’s an automotive-parts expert and has a deep understanding of our customers field sales and store operations,” Stengel asserted. “We’re excited for the strong leadership Tom will bring to our sales and store operations field teams.”

      Photo caption: Devonte Wilson, a Congressional aide for U.S. Rep. Jeff Jackson, visits MANN+HUMMEL’s manufacturing plant in Gastonia, North Carolina.
      MANN+HUMMEL’s North American aftermarket brands – WIX Filters, Purolator Filters and MANN-FILTER – announced support for the Right-to-Repair campaign.
      Spearheaded by the Auto Care Association, the initiative is focused on the passage of H.R. 906, the “Right to Equitable and Professional Auto Industry Repair (REPAIR) Act.” This bipartisan legislation provides the right for independent repair shops and aftermarket businesses to access critical information, tools and equipment needed to maintain and repair vehicles at a fair and reasonable cost.
      Ultimately, the bill helps ensure the preservation of consumer choice, a fair marketplace and the continued safe operation of the nation’s 292 million registered passenger and commercial motor vehicles, 70% of which are maintained by independent repair facilities.
      To support the campaign, representatives from MANN+HUMMEL’s North American leadership recently met with the legislative staff for U.S. Rep. Jeff Jackson of North Carolina’s 14th Congressional District to encourage passage of the legislation, which currently has 49 sponsors.
      “Consumer choice is the pounding heartbeat of the aftermarket industry, and competition in the marketplace drives improved service and affordability,” said Daryl Benton, VP of sales & marketing – Aftermarket North America for MANN+HUMMEL. “The Right to Repair maintains a level playing field for independent repair shops and do-it-yourselfers as vehicle systems become increasingly complex and the cost of regular service and maintenance escalates.”
      The Right-to-Repair movement has gained momentum in recent years. In November 2020, Massachusetts voters approved a ballot measure supporting a Right-to-Repair initiative with 75% of the vote, and Maine voters approved a similar ballot measure in November 2023 with over 80% of the vote.
      In May 2021, the Federal Trade Commission published its “Nixing the Fix” report, which supported reinvigorated regulatory options and consumer education to provide consumers and independent repair shops with appropriate access to replacement parts, instructions, and diagnostic software. 
      Additionally, President Joe Biden issued an executive order on “Promoting Competition in the American Economy” in July 2021 to encourage the FTC to use its statutory authority in addressing anti-competitive repair restrictions.

      Litens Aftermarket announced its acquisition of Kenakore Solutions, a third-party logistics warehouse and distribution center in Perrysburg, Ohio, near Toledo.
      Kenakore, with three decades of experience, has been a key partner to Litens for the past seven years. Litens said the acquisition is “a strategic move by Litens to enhance customer experience and streamline distribution processes.”
      “Through integrating Kenakore’s well-established processes and systems, Litens is set to improve its overall customer experience through enhanced communication capabilities and increased flexibility that enables Litens to further meet diverse customer demands with ease,” the company asserted in a news release.  
      Kenakore’s proximity to major distribution routes via I-75 and I-80 gives Litens “the added benefit of seamless connectivity and efficient distribution across the United States.”
      With the completion of the acquisition, Kenakore’s distribution center will be rebranded as “Litens Aftermarket Distribution.” Encompassing 123,000 square feet of space, the facility is staffed by 40 employees and includes 30 shipping and receiving bays.
      The facility plays a pivotal role in kitting and distributing Litens Aftermarket products, serving as the primary distribution hub for Litens Aftermarket in North America.
      “We work closely with the team at Kenakore and are excited to bring them under the Litens umbrella,” said John Lussier, president of Litens Aftermarket. “This acquisition is a natural progression as we continue to strengthen our control over the customer experience across the aftermarket and underscores our commitment to elevating the Litens brand.”
      The acquisition aligns with one of Litens’ strategic-growth pillars, focusing on complete customer-experience management and fostering a seamless end-to-end journey, Litens added.
      The move follows Litens’ 2023 acquisition of Dolz, a Spain-based manufacturer of water pumps, “and is another step in Litens’ aftermarket growth initiative.”
