Kevin Price, UK marketing manager, TRW Aftermarket, explained: “By working closely with the vehicle manufacturers and by directly translating the original equipment power of our parent company ZF TRW into our aftermarket offer, we ensure that the aftermarket has the parts it needs in the shortest time possible.”

In addition, the business has spoken out to remind the market to book vehicles in for an all-important health check to make sure that everything is in order for when the inclement winter weather arrives.

Kevin continued: “At TRW, safety is our number one priority. Many drivers often leave it to the last minute to ensure that all the components in their vehicle are in perfect working order before the cold weather strikes.
“This is particularly important when it comes to safety critical systems such as braking and steering.”
