With the vote as best commercial vehicle parts distributor, the professionals in the transport industry pay tribute to the customer-friendly and expert service, the fast and precise logistics, as well as the comprehensive product range.
During the award ceremony, EUROPART CEO Pierre Fleck said: "We are very proud and grateful for the confidence
that the readers of PROFI Werkstatt have shown in us. This award shows that customers value our know-how,
the individual service and the close contact with customers. In this context I would especially like
to thank all the employees who give total engagement every day to ensure the satisfaction of our customers."
With the prize of "Best brand 2016", the readers of the HUSS publishing house honour the EUROPART spare part strategy: With more than 400,000 items and the systematic combination of commercial vehicle parts of leading manufacturers with a selection of spare components and consumables of EUROPART's own brand, the company offers the fitting spare part for every need and for all common trucks, trailers, buses and vans.
This year, for the first time, EUROPART was also nominated in the category "Cleaning and Care": "I am especially pleased by the award in this category. We place great value in the top quality of our own brand products and make continuous investment in quality control. This award shows that our efforts are definitely worthwhile," declared Ralf Maurer, Commercial Director. The assortment of cleaning and care products ranges from multi-function cleaners, silicone removers or compact foam cleaners, through tarpaulin and truck cleaners, zinc-aluminium spray, underbody and stone chip protection to air conditioning cleaner, V-belt spray, wheel rim silver or compressed air spray. "The percentage of returned parts to the total sales is currently 0.019 percent which is also very low and at OE level. It is exactly this high quality that ensures lasting customer satisfaction," explained Mr Maurer.
