With modern vehicles demanding more diverse and expensive parts due to technological advancements, automotive lighting and mirrors have become a more problematic product group for the aftermarket. From bulky, space consuming components, to multiple options for a specific part and car model, sourcing parts has become even more complicated for motor factors.
A Specialist Partnership
The partnership between Prasco and FPS will bring mirror and lighting parts from renowned brand, TYC at competitive prices.
TYC is a multi-award winning manufacturer of automotive lamps. With more 70 production lines centred around automotive lamps, TYC is at the forefront of automotive lighting technology. They produce OE quality lighting for automotive manufacturers such as Ford, Suzuki and Volkswagen.
Prasco’s long standing reputation in being one of Europe’s automotive parts specialists comes from their ability to provide correct, quality parts swiftly. Established in Italy in 1988, the company has since grown leaps and bounds with 7 warehouses across Europe.
Prasco’s industry experience affords them the ability to stay ahead of the curve in market trends. With Prasco as a sourcing partner, FPS has re-invested significantly to simplify the sourcing processes in mirror and lighting parts for motor factors.
By focusing resources to bring a more streamline stock offering in mirrors and automotive lighting units, FPS has a more precise inventory covering more of the correct stock, available for same/next-day delivery.
Aligning to Market Trends
Despite the complex process of sourcing mirror and lighting parts in the aftermarket, the fundamental demands are still the same – they are distress items, price sensitive and availability is key.
Recognising this reality, an immediate result of this growing relationship with Prasco is the realignment and reduction of prices for mirrors and lighting through FPS. By making these components available through same/next-day delivery, FPS customers do not need to stock up on bulky inventory. Furthermore, the price realignment has created a more advantageous sales opportunity to motor factors as the prices are more market competitive.
Prasco’s comprehensive pareto understanding means that the part catalogue is further fine-tuned. This allow motor factors to pick the right part quickly and easily, even though there are multiple options for the part listed.
Certified TecDoc data supplier, Prasco products are also Thatcham Accredited and TUV certified. Prasco automotive lighting and mirrors are available from FPS via MAM Autocat and on the F:Drive. For more information, please speak with your local FPS representative.
