Hyundai to supply independents

Made for Trade offers garages OE parts

Published:  04 August, 2014

Vehicle manufacturer Hyundai has launched 'Made for Trade' to supply the UK's independent aftermarket industry with OE parts.

Following a pilot initiative, the scheme now supplies more than 40 Hyundai trade dealers, selected for location and quality of service. The company's parts and service arm, Hyundai Mobis, will support Made for Trade, which has been developed to cater for the increasing number of the brand's models on UK roads.

The company has recognised that many older models are serviced by independent garages and has launched the scheme to allow dealers and the manufacturer an opportunity to profit by selling garages genuine OE parts for their service and repairs.

Tony Whitehorn, president and chief executive, Hyundai Motor UK, comments: "The creation of our Made For Trade parts programme follows the introduction earlier this year of Hyundai's overnight parts delivery service. Both help to enhance standards of aftersales care offered to customers and trade professionals."

The new programme uses number-plate recognition software to make the ordering of Hyundai OE parts as fast and efficient as possible. Independent retailers also benefit from parts retailers, a stock check analysis tool, merchandise, promotional offers and training programmes.
