Raybestos says it had its customers in mind when the company decided to realign its product offerings into three distinct lines: Element3, Raybestos R-Line and Specialty, according to Kristin Grons, marketing manager for Brake Parts Inc (BPI). The new product lines were showcased at the Raybestos booth during the recent AAPEX show in Las Vegas.
“Each line is packaged in distinctly identified boxes to help professional technicians manage their inventories and to help them quickly select the right brake parts for each job,” said Grons. “Customers get the same great products in easy-to-understand family packaging, with no part number changes. With the new product lines, it’s The Best in Brakes made easy.”
BPI says the three distinct product categories allow for:
- Straight-forward inventory that is easier to manage
- Simple and clear product families that easily work together, providing great performance for the entire braking system with fewer comebacks
- Increased sales by selling the complete braking system
- Kits for top applications – easy to market, easy to sell
