National Chooses Fully Type-Approved Klarius Exhausts for New UK Campaign

MANCHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 7, 2011) -

National Tyres and Autocare has over 210 retail outlets in the UK and as part of a countrywide policy of re-stocking local branches, has made the decision to offer only top quality Klarius type-approved exhausts – made in the UK. National will also be stocking Klarius replacement CATs, Lambda sensors and Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs).

Tony Neill, National CEO explains the decision, "Customers lives are getting ever busier and counter to the de-stocking policy of other national fast-fits, we believe that keeping stock locally is better for the customer – a shorter wait for a replacement part adds convenience and can save time and money for our customers."

"We have chosen to exclusively stock Klarius products for a number of reasons; firstly the weight of evidence showing how a type-approved product is superior to a non-type approved exhaust was overwhelming, hence we wanted a type approved supplier. Fully type approved exhaust systems can provide a 3% fuel saving, higher performance retention in older cars and a huge reduction in environmental impact due to lower emissions. When we learned that all Klarius exhausts are type approved, are manufactured and stocked in the UK, and come with a guarantee, we knew we had the right product to take to the market".

A new range of products and a complete restocking process in all 200+ National branches and service centres has now been completed. Working together to manage stocks, Klarius has developed hundreds of parts in advance of other manufacturers and so National has a real advantage over other fast-fit chains that are carrying older stock.

Over 185 branches will receive a service level or five deliveries per day so parts can be delivered on-demand, allowing service centres to fit parts to customer vehicles same-day. Exhausts have always been a core product for National, and now Klarius is delivering direct to branches, there is an opportunity to make this an even more competitive product line.

National believes it has the formula for supply and customer confidence right, and plans to open fifteen new branches this year, making it Britain's fastest growing national fast-fitter.
