Delphi Expands Aftermarket Offerings

Delphi Product and Service Solutions announced several major additions to its aftermarket product offering today at the AAPEX show in Las Vegas.
In a presentation that kicked off with a review of the company’s reorganization plans, Frank Ordonez, president, said that since filing for reorganization under Chapter 11 just more than a year ago, “the performance of the company has never been better. We have not missed one shipment to any customer as a result of the restructuring.”
Several product line enhancements were the focus of announcements, including blower motors, HVAC components, remanufactured engine control units for Ford and DaimlerChrysler in addition to the existing GM applications, and planar oxygen sensors. “We are going to leverage our OE ties to help our aftermarket customers,” says David Barbeau, General Director, Global Sales & Marketing. “Over 70% of vehicles with the previous cone technology [sensors] can be upgraded.
“As a company that can supply most major OE vehicle system, Delphi is well positioned to bring the OE products, services and tools the automotive aftermarket needs to compete in today’s aftermarket,” says Ordoez. “Consistent with the company’s growth in non-GM business, at this year’s show we are announcing a host of products for non-GM applications.”
Delphi’s also took the opportunity to highlight is consumer electronics products. The SKYFi3 XM Satellite radio receiver is 65 percent smaller than its predecessors, yet maintains nearly every benefit of the previous generation product. SKYFi3 offers an optimum balance of compact size, screen readability and portability outside the vehicle.
Delphi’s first portable navigation device, the NAV200, offers the budget conscious customer a unique blend of advanced navigation and entertainment features in a sleek, portable package for less than $400 U.S.
The AAPEX show is part of Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week held annually in Las Vegas.
