Dayco has completed its restructuring process by opening its own centrally-based distribution centre in Redditch, West Midlands.
The company, which supplies original equipment timing belts, previously worked through a national distributor.
National sales manager, Steve Carolan said: “In order for Dayco to help its customers grow their power transmission related business, a direct supply arrangement with its independent customers was a must.”
Dayco has also invested in its own sales and technical teams to work directly with customers in order to develop their business and support their workshop customers and in the process, build a greater rapport and nurture stronger business relationships.
The company has recruited Charlie Huddleston, who will cover the north and work alongside regional sales manager for the south, Mark Barnett, technical manager, Glen Goldstone and Carolan.
Dayco also now has the products that factors and workshops need: HT belts and kits, timing/water pump kits, chain kits and all the auxiliary drive related belts and components necessary to cater for the growth in FEAD (front end auxiliary drive) system service and repair.
