Original equipment expertise for the aftermarket.
Both automotive suppliers HELLA and Faurecia are joining forces in the independent spare parts business and are acting together in the aftermarket. Both companies boast considerable original equipment expertise: the world's major automotive brands rely greatly on Faurecia and HELLA. As a result of the bundling of their activities, customers benefit not only from a comprehensive range of services, but above all from a significantly expanded product range.
In order to symbolise the close ties between HELLA and Faurecia, both companies operate under the umbrella brand "FORVIA".
For wholesalers this means: In addition to the well-known, comprehensive HELLA product portfolio, Faurecia Service product lines can also be purchased from HELLA via the aftermarket organisation – with all the advantages that HELLA has to offer as a partner of the wholesale trade.
The joint aftermarket activities begin with exhaust systems. Today one in four cars worldwide is equipped with a Faurecia exhaust system. Using this expertise as a basis, the French Group has developed the “Easy2Fit®” kits. These high-quality exhaust system kits not only facilitate ordering and logistics, but above all they increase efficiency in the workshop.
Easy2Fit® are all-in-one kits: that means there is just the one part number per kit that includes all accessories and instructions.
Over 26,000 OE applications can be covered by approximately 3,300 different exhaust system kits across four product groups (DPF, catalytic converters, silencers, pipes). This reduces space and storage costs and streamlines logistics. This significantly reduces your workload as a wholesaler. Another bonus is that the cardboard boxes are suitable for automated platforms. They are also characterised by a high level of robustness and transport safety. Compared to conventionally packed exhaust systems, the damage rate during transport is reduced by up to 50%. Furthermore, diverse items can be placed on Euro pallets.
So you can clearly see that the partnership between HELLA and Faurecia offers you many advantages. And that is only the beginning. Other product lines will expand the "Faurecia. Partnered with HELLA" leading edge even further. Look forward to more interesting and sophisticated products in the near future.
Cumbersome transport, complex storage and difficult installation: exhaust systems present a number of logistical challenges for the aftermarket. To reduce not only the risk of damage to goods but also transportation costs, Faurecia Service has developed the Easy2Fit® product line: thanks to the innovative system, exhaust spare parts (such as DPF, catalytic converter, silencer or pipe) including installation accessories fit into a handy, Euro-pallet standardised box.
All our exhaust systems have been tested in Faurecia's EN ISO 14000 and IATF 16949 certified research and development department to the strictest manufacturer standards.
These tests fully comply with car manufacturers' requirements and specifications surrounding vibration, sealing, heat, strength, sound and durability. Faurecia is a world leader in exhaust systems.
