Delphi Technologies, which has its North American headquarters in Troy, is expanding its product portfolio in fuel handling, steering and suspension, and engine sensors.
The company added 534 new fuel handling SKUs in 2018 and expanded into GDi high-pressure pumps and other accessories, including nearly 300 fuel pressure regulators. New releases in 2018 include 95 first-to-market parts. Delphi has more than one-third of the total market share and 98 percent sales coverage in North America.
In turn, Delphi’s steering and suspension offerings, which launched in North America last year, will have increased its SKU count on the continent by 40 percent. The company plans to double it in 2019. By the end of next year, Delphi will offer 99 percent sales coverage in steering and suspension. Its products include control arms, tie rod ends, inner tie rods, and tie rod assemblies, sway bar links, ball joints, track control arms, bushings, bellow kits, and steering kits.
“Steering and suspension has been a tremendous growth story for us,” says Chad Smith, vice president of aftermarket for North America. “Our strong global footprint has allowed us to bring our successful European product line to the North American market, and since its launch in February 2017, we have significantly increased our sales coverage.
“We are excited about becoming a full-line steering and suspension supplier by 2020, because it sends a powerful message to the market that we are the right partner for our customers in this category. We are focused on providing the parts that technicians need to replace every day, with the same quality standards they trust.”
Delphi has announced a targeted approach to achieve growth in the engine sensors line by the end of 2020. The company plans to increase its engine sensor offering to 75 percent sales coverage by the end of 2019, and 90 percent sales coverage by the end of 2020. The company offers ABS/wheel speed sensors; cam and crank position sensors; MAP, MAF, and MAT sensors; knock/detonation sensors; and coolant and oil temperature sensors.
“By the end of 2020, we plan to complement our strong product offerings in ignition coils and MAF sensors with a broad, comprehensive portfolio of engine sensors to give our customers even more options,” says Smith. “We’re listening to what they need from an engine-sensors supplier and are committed to providing them with the OE-quality parts that they associate with the Delphi name.”
Delphi Technologies is headquartered in London and provides electric vehicle and internal combustion engine propulsion solutions.
