Endorsements from Clients









"During 2009 and 2010, Aftermarket Solutions helped us to improve our Parts business. They did this in two ways. They explained to Dealer Principals how to get the best out of their Parts Managers and they showed the Parts Managers how to deliver better results".

"As a company, we developed a closer management team with a great understanding of the key metrics for Parts. With the help of Aftermarket Solutions we were able to reduce our stock significantly. The stock turn improved from 9.9 to 14.4 without any worsening of customer service – a saving of £132,000. Although less dramatic, our direct profit from Parts also improved by £19,000".

"Most of our contact was with David Lansdowne. I was particularly impressed by the manner in which he dealt with our management team, his thorough analysis of our business and his skills in developing our ability to achieve a better return from our Parts operation".
