Dayco, an engine products and drive systems supplier for the automotive industry, is implementing initiatives with the goal of becoming the preferred solution provider for front end drive system components. The company is focused on ensuring coverage is readily available for popular vehicle makes and models.
The "Top Movers" project aims to ensure that Dayco's top high volume part numbers are always in stock for distributors. The operations team is enhancing our warehouse management system by creating a new safety policy as well as consolidating different orders to the same shipment, reducing complexity, costs, and order cycle times.
"We have the right team in place to help us re-establish our position in the market," said Tom Tecklenburg, vice president of Dayco N.A. Aftermarket. "Our key focus this past year has been on improving our fill rates and analyzing any possible gaps in our core product offerings. The Top Movers initiative and new coverage we're introducing build on a commitment to our customers to help drive sales among the shops they serve, and to ensure top movers are always available so we can deliver the right part at the right time."
Dayco's initiative also includes the plan to bring 140 new parts number to market during Q1 2024.
Dayco will be at AAPEX 2023 as a part of the new product showcase.
