DAYCO CONCLUDES SUPPLY DEAL WITH ECP
New Deal Supports Customers
Dayco Aftermarket UK is delighted to announce that it has come to an agreement with Euro Car Parts (ECP) to distribute its complete range of automotive power transmission components.
Commenting on the arrangement Dayco’s national sales manager, Steve Carolan said: “We have been in talks with ECP for a little while now and so we are very pleased to be able to conclude the deal after both sides have worked so hard to ensure that the arrangement will bring benefits across the board.
“Naturally an agreement to supply the UK’s largest independently owned motor factor is a coup for us and is sure to further raise the profile of the Dayco brand throughout the market.
“As one of the major original equipment suppliers of drive belts, tensioners and pulleys, Dayco has the quality pedigree to give the workshop complete confidence in its products and the distributor a brand that allows them to compete effectively in this important sector of the market.
“Another important message we wish to highlight through ECP is the fantastic opportunity that Dayco High Tenacity (HT) or ‘white’ belt timing belt kits provide the independent garage.
“The Dayco HT belt is a unique product and has become the original equipment (OE) solution for an increasing number of vehicle manufacturers. As a result, more vehicles fitted with these white belts are coming into the workshop and it’s only Dayco that can provide the aftermarket with a truly matching OE product, because only Dayco HT kits replicate the vehicle manufacturers OE installation.
“In addition to the obvious benefit that this gives the independent sector, the kit also provides them with the potential to improve upon the standard warranty that would normally be offered by the franchised dealer undertaking a timing belt replacement.
“Dayco’s unique Long Life + 1 year warranty is free of charge to the factor, workshop and motorist, but extends the warranty on the Dayco HT belt from the existing two years, to a market leading three-year term, which is great news for workshops choosing Dayco.”
