Bosch is well known among the OE sector as well as the automotive aftermarket as a pioneer of technology related to vehicles. With a history of innovation and quality since 1897, Bosch lends high levels of competence, expertise and quality standards to its aftermarket range, using the same machinery, specifications and materials as used for OE parts.
A Broad Offering
Following up on the successful launch of its engine management portfolio in 2015 that comprised air mass sensors, fuel injectors, fuel pumps, ignition coils, lambda sensors as well as camshaft and crankshaft sensors, the portfolio has now been expanded to include a broader product range available overnight from FPS Sheffield. This expansion includes spark plugs, glow plugs, wheel speed sensors and other electronic braking components for ABS and ESP systems. Other products including rotating electrics, filtration and diesel parts will also be stocked for overnight service from FPS Sheffield.
FPS has also taken on the range of wiper blades from Bosch to support same-day demand for the aftermarket, offering single blades as well as Master Pack options.
Quality & Reliability
With its OE pedigree, high-quality testing and innovative developments, Bosch’s expertise in all automotive systems means that it understands the importance of precision and quality. With FPS, all Bosch products (excluding Rotating Electrics) are backed by a 12-month warranty from the date of installation; Rotating Electrics carry a two-year warranty from date of sale.
Bosch also offers numerous training modules and materials for workshops to keep them abreast with latest developments within the industry. Aided further by campaigning, marketing support, regular new-to-range updates and stock replenishment by FPS, the relationship aims to establish a bigger portfolio and a better informed and better-serviced aftermarket.
Bosch exchange offers customers the unique benefit of certified industrial remanufacturing. This enables factors to avail remanufactured starters, alternators, diesel injectors and pumps from Bosch, incorporating the latest production technology and the know-how gained from OE manufacturing. The quality standards and functional tests are maintained at the same level as new Bosch parts. This ensures the same warranty coverage for the remanufactured parts at a lower cost option. The remanufactured parts also come with the Bosch seal of approval.
The Extra Rewards Programme
The Extra programme incentivises workshops to buy and fit Bosch automotive products, benefitting both FPS and motor factors. Under this scheme, workshops that buy and fit Bosch parts, after registering online (www.extra-rewards.co.uk), can send in the barcodes from the Bosch packaging in the freepost envelopes provided to automatically accumulate points in their Extra account. These points can then be redeemed against a variety of rewards.
