Keeping a keen eye on repair procedures: Wulf Gaertner Autoparts AG’s world of services
With a keen eye on workshop process efficiency the Hamburg-based spare parts manufacturer is continually expending its range of services and solutions geared to the needs of professional repairers. At this year's exhibition, the company will therefore be focusing on the wide array of services which it offers under the MEYLE and MEYLE-HD brands along with numerous pioneering product applications. "We can give a 4-year warranty because all parts of our MEYLE-HD premium brand are designed to last", says Sven Nielsen, Technical Director at Wulf Gaertner Autoparts AG. "This way, we help repair businesses to prevent customer complaints and become their customers' trusted partner: a win-win situation for both the workshop and car owners."The engineers scrutinise automotive components to find new ways of increasing part life and reducing repair effort while maximising the efficiency of preceding and following processes. Because it's often trivial things that make repairs unnecessarily costly, for example when entire assemblies need to be replaced even though only individual components are defective. That it doesn't have to be that way is expertly demonstrated by Wulf Gaertner Autoparts AG's solution for axle carriers: The company's engineers have developed rubber bushings which are available separately making it possible to replace just the bushing by pressing the old one out and the new one in. This saves a lot of time, cuts repair costs and allows for a more efficient use of repair resources.
