By the end of the year, Tenneco expects to have launched about 300 new part numbers for its Quick-Strut line.
Through October, 255 new part numbers have been introduced, with another 42 to come by the end of the year, the company said. This represents a 71 per cent increase for the year, boosting coverage to an additional 27 million registered vehicles.
“Our aggressive investment in new coverage answers a need we hear almost every day from repair shop owners and professional technicians: ‘I wish I could use a Monroe Quick-Strut assembly for this vehicle,’” said John Perrin, executive director of product management, North America Aftermarket at Tenneco.
And more assemblies are still to come over the next two years, Perrin added. The company will aim to have the new part numbers line up with vehicles as they enter the ideal time for ride control service.
“Our product strategy offers channel partners and their customers the greatest potential for sustained business growth through coverage that addresses each stage of a vehicle’s aftermarket lifecycle,” Perrin said.
