New Champion Retail Concept helps improve stockists’ profitability
Optimised Aerovantage range simplifies wiper-blade market, provides over 90% car parc coverage
Bradford, UK, 25th February 2015… Federal-Mogul Motorparts has announced the launch of its new, high-impact Champion® Retail Concept, which optimises its premium Aerovantage range to make buying wiper blades easier for consumers, whilst maximising revenue for resellers. A carefully chosen stocking profile forms part of a compact, visually striking display, which reaches in excess of 90% of the market.
“We have identified a way to make buying wiper blades easier for the customer without compromising our extensive market coverage. At the same time we are providing Champion stockists with the opportunity to increase their margins, it’s a win, win” said Jonathan Allen, Federal-Mogul Motorparts Regional Marketing Manager. “Federal-Mogul is constantly looking for ways to help customers drive sales in the premium segment of the market.We believe the Champion Retail Concept will allow retailers to entice customers with simple, clear cataloguing and easy to understand selling messages about Champion blades. Put simply, we believe that consumers will pay more for the quality and performance the Champion brand represents when given good reason to do so and it’s made easy for them.”
The optimised Aerovantage stocking profile that forms the core of the concept covers 95% of the fast-growing flat-blade market, which now accounts for 40% of cars in the UK; and further reaches more than 90% of traditional, hybrid and rear applications. The concept is designed to minimise customer effort by using an integrated application guide for quick and easy product lookup. It also provides the additional reassurance of video fitting guides via the Champion mobile app which can be launched by scanning a QR code from either the point of sale or from the product packaging. The retailers can also be provided with additional warehouse stock to maintain the supply of less popular parts.
