CRP Automotive has added engine part manufacturer AJUSA to its multi-brand offering automotive replacement parts.
AJUSA joins ContiTech Automotive belts, Rein Automotive parts and accessories, and Pentosin Technical Fluids as part the CRP Automotive group.
AJUSA makes automotive gaskets, head bolt sets, seals, hydraulic lifters, and camshafts, that are distributed in over 70 countries. It has over 3,500 different parts in stock, covering European and Asian applications, especially late-model vehicles.
Daniel Schildge, president of CRP Industries Inc., said CRP will handle all marketing, sales, product development, distribution and customer support operations in the U.S. and Canada.
"The AJUSA line is an excellent addition to our brand family and is a natural extension to the application areas covered by our other product lines. AJUSA will go a long way in helping to further enhance our expertise in the engine repair and service category," he said.
Jose Manuel Martinez Sanchez, executive vice president of AJUSA, said the agreement represents cooperation between two companies with identical philosophies.
"After 15 years in the NAFTA region managing the distribution with our own subsidiary, Import Gaskets AJUSA (IGA), we’ve found a better solution with a leader and expert as CRP Industries, being the best partner possible to guarantee the future of AJUSA in the market… actually we strongly believe that the future together will be brilliant and full of opportunities for both companies".
AJUSA products will be available from CRP Automotive’s ISO 9001:2008 certified warehouses in Cranbury, NJ, Fremont, CA, and Mississauga, ON, Canada. These facilities and warehouses are strategically placed within the U.S. and Canadian markets so CRP can provide widespread access to the best products and superior customer service before and after the sale.
