Quality, Safety and Performance
Mr. R. Vetrivel Raaja,
Rameswar Auto Electrical Ltd.
“Federal Mogul Motor Parts is one of the fastest growing companies in terms of market share and product portfolio in the aftermarket business in India. Their approach to move closer to the customer is really encouraging. We feel proud to be associated with Federal Mogul and hope to grow with them.”
Mr. Rajesh L. Nichani
"We have been fortunate to work with Federal-Mogul and are thankful to them for their support. They believe in price and distribution stability which is good for everyone. We are a reputed distributor of a range of automotive and tractor parts for brands such as Goetze, Champion, Glyco and Ferodo, among others. A major share of our business comes from products of Federal-Mogul such as piston rings, bearings, etc., with the association being nearly 35 years old."
Mr. Harbhajan Singh Suri
"We have the Goetze, Ferodo and Glyco brands from Federal-Mogul. For the Goetze brand, as far as M&HCV trucks are concerned, one of our competitors entered the market before us. But over the last two to three years, we have been really making a dent and have become No.1 in Chennai and a few other areas, while we are No.2 and growing in others parts of the State. In LCVs and cars, we have a clear monopoly in the State."
Mr. Rajesh Jain and Mr. Pawan Jain
"Federal Mogul quality is the best in the industry and their products are equipped with the latest technology. They have a basket of products with pistons, piston rings, liners, spark plus, brake linings, wipers, coolants, etc., with some more new products on the anvil. It cuts across all the segments comprising two-wheelers, three-wheelers, tractors, CVs, and four-wheelers. They are OE to most of the brands which gives a rub-off effect in the aftermarket."
Mr. Ashish Kalra
Dewan Auto Store
Federal Mogul is the leading brand in the engine segment. For spark plugs too, they are the leading player. They usually get associated with the brand leaders of the country to build it up and shape it further. They make you feel a part of the decision-making process. Federal Mogul made massive investments to upgrade their technological capabilities. Technically, the company is getting more broad-based. I look forward to 15 per cent increase in my customer base every year.
Mr. Ratan Grover
What is really appreciable about Federal Mogul is their product quality, backed by good packaging and an efficient sales team. The company has been very supportive to its distributors. We started at the ground level. This month I have received 75,000 plugs from the company. On a monthly basis, we are selling 30,000/40,000 units per month. We preferred to be with Federal Mogul as my passion is to work with the most reputed companies.
Mr. Jagjit Singh Chandok,
National Auto Links
“Federal Mogul is known for its variety, durability and serviceability. Their gift coupon concepts are also very well appreciated in the market. We are very happy with the world-class quality products which can feed the entire market for LCVs, MCVs and HCVs of various OEMs. We are now going beyond engines and are looking to launch gaskets too.”
Mr. K.P. Jhunjhunwala,
“Our experience with the company has been very good. The aftermarket business has turned out to be very lucrative as our company is doing roughly Rs. 80 crores annual turnover, of which Federal Mogul contributes a significant share, mainly because of its excellent market support to us, which is also why we are working closely with it for decades.”
Among the new product lines, J.J. Automotive will be rolling out Ferodo brake linings for the CV segment while it is also planning to bring in coolants and brake pads.
Mr. Pankaj Chawla,
Merck Spares (India)
“Our association with Federal Mogul goes back to 2009. We are basically into engine spare parts, i.e., main bearings, and connecting for all segments barring two-wheelers, of which the HCV segment gives us the maximum volume. We are very happy with Federal Mogul all these years as they have a good product range and their aftermarket service quality is world-class. They have a good network and excellent reach. Moreover, they offer interesting schemes from time to time. Going forward, we are planning to add gaskets to our portfolio.”
Mr. Maherdas J. Patel,
“We have been associated with Federal Mogul since our company inception. At Century, we sell their products like Goetze pistons & rings, Champion spark plugs and Glyco bearings. There has been a constant increase of 5 to 8 per cent in sales volumes for these items every year. Last year we saw a rise in demand for Goetze pistons and rings, and hope that this trend will continue in all other segments, Federal Mogul as a company is evolving. Greater professionalism, adoption of better practices and renewed focus on customer satisfaction are some of the major factors for the growing demand for products in the emerging scenario.”
Mr. Dhaval Shah ,
“We have been receiving very good support from Federal Mogul with growing customer interaction in the last few years. Out of our total turnover, nearly 40-45 per cent comes from Federal Mogul motorparts. We have been receiving very good support from the company and the demand from the end user for its products is consistently expanding. Business is slow but steady, and we are growing at a rate of 10-15 per cent year-on-year. With the new government in place, we are very positive that the business will only get better in the years to come.”
Mr. Ajay Grover,
Sukshanti Auto Products Pvt. Ltd
“Our relationship with Federal Mogul has always been excellent, irrespective of the current market condition. And with the new top-level management at Federal Mogul India, they understand the ground reality better and are offering us amicable solutions.”
