LOS ANGELES, Calif. Centric Parts has just released its first catalog developed exclusively for Mexico, an increasingly important automotive market for the company.
The 2011 Centric Parts Mexico/Sistemas de Frenos Mexico (Brake Systems Mexico) catalog includes pads, shoes, discs, drums and hydraulic components for approximately 180 new applications. The catalog also includes illustrations of nearly every part. Those familiar with the Centric Parts catalog will note that a “99” prefix identifies these new offerings in the catalog.
“As an industry leader in cataloging, Centric prides itself on having the most up-to-date information available for customers in any market,” said Centric Parts President Dan Lelchuk. “The 2011 Brake Systems Mexico catalog builds on that reputation, while recognizing the importance of continually incorporating growing automotive markets.”
Centric said its award-winning catalog department worked with Mexican customers and manufacturers to develop a Spanish-language catalog that covers makes and models exclusive to the Mexican market. This catalog serves as a supplement to Centric’s existing 2011 parts catalog, adding additional “national model” vehicles to the application range. Makes and models not currently sold in the United States are included in the catalog, which covers models from Alfa Romeo, Audi, BMW, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Dodge, FAW, Fiat, Ford, Honda, Isuzu, Land Rover, Mercedes Benz, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Peugeot, Pontiac, Renault, Rover, Seat, Smart, Suzuki, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo.
Approximately 90 percent of the national models available in Mexico are covered in the 2011 Sistemas de Frenos Mexico catalog, with more being added as additional data becomes available. Gaining access to the national models can present unique challenges for Centric engineers who insist on meticulous measuring and analysis of every OEM part before a replacement can be developed. While many of the national models use existing part numbers from the immense Centric Parts catalog, nearly 100 new parts were added to the FMSI index as a result of this new project.
All of the parts offered in the 2011 Centric Parts Sistemas de Frenos Mexico catalog are available to order today.
