LAS VEGAS, Nev. — SAF-Holland has introduced a new Gold Line Quality Parts portfolio for the aftermarket.
The launch was the final of five major initiatives SAF-Holland has undertaken since 2010 to better serve its aftermarket customers, the company announced. Previous steps included: launching a dedicated aftermarket external sales team; offering a complete aftermarket-focused internal customer service group to support sales; launching a comprehensive parts catalog featuring more than 20,000 parts; opening a distribution centre in Cincinnati, Ohio; and developing an electronic catalog dubbed Parts on Demand.
The new Gold Line offering expands SAF-Holland’s aftermarket parts offerings. The company says the new line features high-quality parts ideal for vehicles in their second life.
“Gold Line Quality Parts brand will allow us to offer an expanded portfolio of quality replacement part options that are readily available, and more economical than ever before,” said Carl Mesker, vice-president, SAF-Holland’s aftermarket business unit.
Parts offered through the new line include: landing gear accessories; brake chambers; tapered wheel bearings; kingpin locks; air springs; grease; and the entire Gabriel shock and TSE brake chamber lines. The line will soon expand to include brake and wheel-end components.
