Replacement parts supplier Dorman explained at its AAPEX booth the importance of offering aftermarket replacement parts of a quality that rivals or surpasses that of original parts.

Parts manufacturer Dorman has always relied on state-of-the-art engineering to offer replacement parts that outperform the original.

As Dorman’s Lester Novacs explained to us, the goal is to offer parts designed to be easy to install and that meet automakers’ requirements.

The OEM Fix Series, for example, aims to introduce parts that correct certain weaknesses in original parts.

“For example,” illustrates Mr. Novacs, “replacement parts for Chrysler’s 3.6-litre engine, found in 10 million vehicles on the road, have been redesigned and produced in steel instead of the original plastic. Manufacturers are increasingly relying on plastic or aluminum parts to lighten their vehicles and improve fuel economy. This puts pressure on better-designed, more accessible replacement parts.”

Dorman goes a step further by also addressing replacement parts for electric vehicles.

At the company’s booth, new steering parts for Tesla cars were on display.

This is in line with Dorman’s mission to provide aftermarket shops with access to quality parts that are better designed and more affordable than the original ones.
