Delphi Makes a Big Push in North American Market

Posted on October 31, 2017

Delphi Product & Service Solutions is expanding its SKU count in North America, and by the end of 2018 will offer 50% more steering and suspension offerings. And that follows the rapid growth of 2017 when more than 2,000 SKUs have already been released.

The North American steering and suspension product line will feature a full line of import and domestic vehicle parts -- control arms, sway bar links, tie rods, ball joints, and bushings, along with steering kits with all the accessories to do the complete job.

The company says it is leaning on its success in the European aftermarket to help build its North American business. Delphi will offer new part numbers every 60 days over the next 14 months. Steering applications will include Volkswagen, Audi, Mercedes-Benz, Acura, Honda, Lexus, Toyota and more, covering more than 241 million vehicles manufactured from 1968 through 2016.

“The U.S. and Canada are important distribution channels for the continued growth of our steering and suspension line of products,” said Alex Ashmore, president of Delphi Aftermarket. “The customers who currently recognize us as the most preferred fuel brand in the aftermarket will soon know and trust our same quality and service for all our steering and suspension products in North America.”

Delphi steering parts are manufactured with robot welding for a consistent fit on every vehicle and are engineered to meet original equipment specifications. They are tested under extreme conditions and are built for high performance with a special coating that helps prevent corrosion.
