Dayco has become a partner brand for the industry’s eXtra loyalty program.

eXtra is a multi-brand loyalty offering geared toward automotive repair shop owners that allows them to buy, earn and redeem points without cutting box tops or tracking sales. It currently has 17,000 participating shop owners in the United States and Canada, and is growing rapidly.

Shops that are registered in the eXtra program now have access to eligible Dayco products and can earn points for purchases that can be redeemed for more than a million items, including everything from high-end merchandise, apparel and electronics from major retailers to travel vouchers, gift certificates and business solutions.

In addition, there are giveaways and incentives for shops as well as daily promotions and regular communication on new products, training information and educational content from the program’s brand partners. 

Dayco products offered through the eXtra program include serpentine-belt kits, timing-belt water-pump kits, timing-chain kits and water pumps.

“This program has been well-received in the industry and is growing quickly,” said Tom Tecklenburg, VP of Dayco N.A. sales & marketing. “It’s extremely easy for shops to participate and we love that it offers Dayco a way to reward those repair shops who purchase from us. Plus it gives us an opportunity to educate eXtra shop members on the quality and effectiveness of all of our kits and system solutions and what sets the Dayco brand apart from competitive products.”

      Buy once, cry once: Auto parts that are worth the extra cost
    • By Counterman
      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.”

      Dayco is the newest member of the Kalitta Motorsports family of corporate partners, and Kalitta Motorsports is the newest distributor of Dayco belts, the team recently announced.
      The 2024 NHRA Mission Foods Drag Racing Series begins March 8-10 at the Amalie Oil NHRA Gatornationals in Gainesville, Florida.  
      Through the new partnership, Dayco will have branding on J.R. Todd’s DHL GR Supra funny car, and Kalitta Motorsports is now the exclusive at-track distributor of Dayco 11-millimeter racing blower belts for nitro engines.
      Dayco and Team Kalitta will work together to expand the available Dayco blower-belt offerings in the near future, they said.
      The Dayco 11-millimeter blower belt is specially engineered for Top Fuel and Funny Cars with nitromethane engines. Featuring a hybrid carbon cord encapsulated in custom rubber compounds and patented low-friction PTFE tooth fabric, the belt offers one of the highest load ratings in racing and has helped numerous teams cross the finish line first, according to Dayco.  
      That success is due in large part to the Dayco team’s utilization of real-world track data to enhance its belt designs, the company added.
      “We are excited to kick off this new partnership with Kalitta Motorsports for the 2024 season,” said Jay Buckley, director of marketing, Dayco North America. “Theirs is a phenomenal team, and we can’t wait to see how they perform with the Dayco 11 mm belt installed on their funny cars.”
      “This new partnership is great news for Team Kalitta,” General Manager Chad Head said. “We are so happy to partner with a company that’s Detroit-based like we are. We strive to provide our race team with components that give our teams the best chance of reaching the finish line first. That’s really what drag racing is all about – running quicker and faster than the opponent, and we’re confident Dayco belts will make a positive impact on J.R. Todd’s DHL funny car. We look forward to a long relationship with Dayco that has potential to expand in the future.”
