NAPA Auto Parts celebrates the opening of their 40th branch nationally as they continue to provide a market leading range and everyday value to workshops across Australia.
The opening of Victoria’s Pakenham location is a milestone for NAPA Auto Parts, marking greater customer access to the country’s leading automotive aftermarket brands and their own collection of reputable brands made by trade qualified experts. OEX has been The Specialist’s Choice for over 20 years, while Great Whites and Drivetech 4×4 continue to deliver new innovative products to the market.
NAPA Auto Parts Rotating Electrical Merchandise Manager, Andrew Little, says with every new product release they continue to add more value for workshops. When creating new OEX products they look at major OE products and take out take out common faults, so customers can plug and play. This has resulted in reduced warranties, less wasted time for customers and in fewer units being thrown out on the job.
This work is evident with OEX’s work with genuine 2.2L Holden Captiva engines, where OEX created a bracket (VXS915U) to prevent the starter motor battery becoming loose and wearing, reducing warranties by ten per cent.
NAPA Auto Parts also offer their own comprehensive range of NAPA branded products, including oil filters, air filters, wipers and oil – perfect for the next major or minor logbook service.
NAPA drive belts and other high demand workshop products are set to be released throughout the year.
Filtration Merchandise Manager, David Cattunar says he’s delighted with the NAPA filtration range, offering innovative, reliable products that will protect and satisfy new warranty requirements. “When creating our spin-on filter range we included extra sealing between the base plate and gasket retainer to ensure the integrity and performance of the anti-drain-back valve. This has improved anti-drain back performance by 98 per cent over a 60-minute period.
“We’ve also created a range of anti-viral activated carbon cabin filters, which use state of the art technology to deliver highly technical bio-functional filters that’ll stand out amongst the best cabin filters in the market,” he said.
