Plews & Edelmann Offers Power Steering Program
Plews & Edelmann now offers the Edelmann Elite power steering program as a one-stop resource for all power steering parts requirements.
This new program features all new rack & pinion assemblies, pumps, and gear boxes, plus an advanced, patent pending filter, and the market’s first premium, high performance power steering hose line.
The Edelmann Elite power steering program is designed to eliminate a wide range of warranty issues and inventory headaches, while helping to improve the reliability and durability of power steering system service and repair.
Tony Edwards, vice president business development, noted, “The total solution that Plews & Edelmann provides is one-of-a-kind. No other supplier in North America offers the full range of power steering components we do. In an industry plagued with high warranty rates and reliability issues, we have introduced a line engineered to meet or exceed OE performance and reliability. And we are a true, one-stop resource for all of our customers’ power steering needs.”
Edelmann Elite power steering racks, pumps and gear boxes are 100% new parts, built on Plews & Edelmann’s proprietary tooling platform. Edelmann Elite parts have been engineered to eliminate common failures seen in the OE parts and improve on the original design and incorporate any OE revisions and enhancements.
To eliminate warranty and fraud issues, every Edelmann Elite hard part is etched with a Designated Numeric Asset (DNA) identification number that matches a test inspection report, which verifies its authenticity and quality. This unique numeric ID makes it easier for distributors and wholesalers to avoid warranty hassles caused by unqualified claims, fraudulent parts swaps and untraceable returns.
Every Edelmann Elite power steering rack is delivered in part-specific, custom molded packaging that protects against damage.
Evan Bauer, director of business development, added, “Plews & Edelmann offers the entire market a clear path to reduced warranties, happy customers, and improved profits. The total solution we offer is the ideal answer to the problem of high aftermarket warranty claims, and we back our Edelmann Elite parts with a 100-year/1 million mile warranty.”
The new Edelmann Elite Power Steering Filter uses advanced Dual Filtration Technology that prevents contamination and delivers high capacity flow. It features a patent pending design that covers over 99% of vehicles in operation with just one SKU. Every filter comes with easily interchangeable 3/8inch, ½-inch and ⅝-inch connectors providing the size needed for a proper fit in almost any application. This also helps reduce inventory requirements and parts returns due to incorrect sizing.
Edelmann Elite High Performance Power Steering Hoses function in heavy use and an extreme range of operating temperatures. Incorporating advanced engineering and an enhanced rubber formulation, Edelmann Elite hoses feature optimum impulse durability and are highly resistant to oil, heat and ozone. All fittings are crimped with a double bead lock to prevent leakage and heat/abrasion shields are used to prevent contact with engines and high vibration areas. Overall application coverage exceeds 130 million VIO.
