Transforming the automotive aftermarket, one massive project at a time
Groupe PSA, the French parent company of the iconic Peugeot, Citroen and DS brands, are redefining the role of the OEM in the automotive aftermarket. With a well-documented ‘Push to Pass’ strategy paying huge dividends in returning the group to profit, a large element of that strategy contains a trailblazing expansion into the ownership of several non-OEM aftermarket brands.
The challenge for Groupe PSA was unique. What do you do when you find yourself owning not one, but several competing, occasionally conflicting whole-chain brands with fundamentally different messages, needing to present to a broad range of micro-audiences?
The answer – appoint RLA, the leading automotive specialist marketing agency, to apply their proven aftermarket experience in managing your brands’ communications activities.
Groupe PSA now own a route to market at every single level within the European aftermarket. From a full OEM parts and service proposition for Peugeot, Citroen and DS brands, an all-makes range in the form of Eurorepar parts, two wholesale and trade operations under Distrigo and Trade Team banners, Europe’s first OEM parts loyalty programme: PERKS, the all-makes independent garage franchise of Euro Repar Car Service, and finally several online parts and service e-commerce and aggregation websites: Autobutler.com, MrAuto.com and WhoCanFixMyCar.com. Phew!
