Electric power steering pumps, columns & racks – The development of the business and what it means for the garage market: –
“Electric power steering pumps, columns & racks are not available” – This is the common thought process for many garages . The other common thought is that they can’t be fitted by the garage (specialist equipment or training is required?). The final thought is, “we can’t make any money when supplying this type of product”.
KPS answers all of these points by offering a comprehensive electric (and hydraulic) power steering range for most vehicles. We supply ‘New OE – Original Equipment’ – supplied from the OE manufacturers (TRW, ZF, JTEKT HPI) and remanufactured parts depending on the application. Our electric power steering pumps, columns & racks are supplied on a ‘plug and play’ basis, i.e. the part is fitted to the vehicle and it will work immediately, there is no programming to carry out as this work has already been carried out by KPS. The range is updated on a monthly basis, call us for more details.
The electric power steering aftermarket opportunity continues to grow as the fitment to new cars increases. For some years now electric power steering pumps, columns & racks have been fitted to 95% of small to medium cars. KPS offers supply of its products via National Distributors with most of the products in stock for immediate delivery. Some products are available on a ‘next day’ delivery basis. Full fitting instructions are provided by KPS to help with the installation and technical back-up is available if required.
