How does Beck/Arnley add parts to the line?
Product managers and researchers conduct ongoing research on the new
parts to add to the line. We respond to the approximately 100 new vehicle
launches and changes each year. New number research is done as soon as
vehicle part information becomes available. But, it is not only new number
research we do. Our research could allow us to add coverage to an existing
part number – what we call carry-up coverage.
How does Beck/Arnley research parts that have carry-up
coverage (fits more applications than we show in our catalog)?
Carry-up coverage comes out of any new research we do. For example, if we are
researching 2009 applications, and we find original equipment numbers that match
what we have today, we now have carry-up coverage.
How often does Beck/Arnley add parts to the line?
The Beck/Arnley product management team launches new parts each quarter during the year.
How long does it take, from start to finish, to add a part to the line?
Adding a new part could take two weeks to two years, or maybe even longer. Time frames are built
around the demand in the market and quality of suppliers we find to meet Beck/Arnley standards.
We require a source to meet critical quality specifications, along with fit, form and function of the
original equipment part.
How do you determine what parts get dropped from the line?
Beck/Arnley continuously monitors sales of individual parts. Once sales reach a point of decline, a decision
is made and a plan to discontinue the part occurs. We work with our sourcing and operations as well as our
customers to manage out of a particular part.
Is Beck/Arnley considering or adding any new product lines?
We are always looking to add new product categories to the line and research the aftermarket needs for repair and
maintenance of foreign nameplate vehicles. New categories must provide value to the technician or channel partner
of Beck/Arnley. We do not add new products, just for the sake of adding a new product category.
