Delphi and Uni-Select Strike Distribution Agreement

Delphi Product & Service Solutions, a division of Delphi Corporation, has announced that it will partner with Uni-Select Inc. to distribute Delphi products and services to Uni-Select’s independently owned auto parts dealers, repair facilities and repair shops across Canada.
“The retail automotive aftermarket is a $14.5 billion industry in Canada,” said Ted Thacker, general director, Sales & Marketing. “As the largest distributor in Canada, Uni-Select is an ideal partner to gain brand presence by placing Delphi quality parts and services in the hands of thousands of vehicle technicians in the country.”
Uni-Select will begin to distribute fuel delivery products this fall. In addition, the company will begin to market Delphi’s ensemble of service products and technologies, including its wireless handheld vehicle service and diagnostic solution. Delphi and Uni-Select will expand product offerings over the next several months.
“Both Uni-Select and Delphi recognize that to be successful in this very competitive business, we must focus on the trends that are impacting the industry today and over the course of the next decade,” said Frank Ordonez, Delphi Product & Service Solutions president. “Our partnership is truly a win-win situation for both companies. Delphi offers the highest technology products and services while Uni-Select has the business relationships throughout the country to offer its customers OE equivalent replacement parts and excellent service solutions.”
“Uni-Select is pleased to have the opportunity to distribute Delphi’s sophisticated electronic devices,” said Jacques Landreville, Uni-Select president and chief executive. “As vehicle platforms become increasingly more complex and the high tech market growing faster each year, Delphi’s expertise will become even more in demand. This partnership will offer a competitive edge to Uni-Select’s merchant members and better service their needs.”
