An iconic brand, Delco Remy has been in business for over 100 years and is a leading global manufacturer widely acknowledged as the preferred choice for medium and heavy duty truck, bus and off highway applications worldwide.

As Australia and New Zealand’s largest distributor of automotive electrical and thermal control parts to the independent automotive aftermarket, Ashdown-Ingram is a Delco Remy Master Distributor, allowing access to greater technical information and better support for customers. Their extensive product range and commitment to quality products, combined with a distribution network unsurpassed in the industry, provide the greatest ability to service customers’ every automotive electrical and thermal need.

Mike Stohler, Delco Remy’s Global Aftermarket Sales Manager shares his story;

“I have two other distributors that have as long of tenure as Ashdown-Ingram, several others were added a year or two later. Having been part of General Motors for so many years and them having their own distribution network we at Delco didn’t really need to worry about distributing our products in the aftermarket. When we split from GM in 1994 all of a sudden we needed a distribution network and that was my task. So, like the Lone Ranger, I set out to see what I could do. I went to trade shows, contacted people I knew in the industry to see if they knew of any good contacts. Ashdown-Ingram’s name kept coming up and the rest is history.”

Over the years, together we have built an exceptional distribution network in Australia and it’s growing every year. Looking back at our first years sales I would never have imagined we would still be growing, and as I look forward to the future, I can only see good things happening.”

We’ve shared a great partnership with Delco Remy over the last 20 years and look forward to the next 20 years!
