Strongsville, Ohio — August 23, 2017 — PPG has announced the addition of LKQ Corporation to its supplier database, consequently expanding the AdjustRite commercial estimating system Commercial Parts Listing Program. LKQ has been a parts source for AdjustRite customers since 2008.
The AdjustRite estimating system is geared toward commercial truck dealers, independent collision repair facilities, fleet repair facilities and more. It’s a logic-based estimating platform that incorporates actual truck model information. According to PPG, this system is the first program that takes the overall repair process into consideration—including overhaul, overlap, included operations and additional operations.
The Commercial Parts Listing Program, a key component of the AdjustRite system, allows suppliers to post their parts catalogues and inventories online, giving truck fleets, repair facilities, insurers and claims personnel the ability to check parts availability and pricing at the same time that an AdjustRite estimate is being prepared. The program is available to all system customers and covers aftermarket, recycled, reconditioned and new take-off (NTO) parts, components LKQ specializes in distributing.
“We’ve worked with AdjustRite for several years and are pleased to expand our role within the program,” said Steve Simmons, Region Vice President of LKQ Corporation’s Heavy Truck division. “We know the AdjustRite supplier network is made up of quality-focused suppliers, and we are pleased to be involved. We look forward to providing AdjustRite customers with the products and value they expect and deserve.”
Ryan Woolfenden, PPG Marketing Manager, Commercial Value Added Programs, said it will be a pleasure to add LKQ Corporation to the company’s parts resource network. “AdjustRite is the only commercial estimating program designed especially for heavy-duty truck repairs, and provides users with the opportunity to make immediate comparisons of components. With LKQ as an available resource, our customers have direct access to a company internationally recognized for its parts quality, variety and competitive pricing.”
According to Woolfenden, AdjustRite benefits commercial parts providers by giving them direct access to the repair facilities, fleets, insurance companies, independent adjusting companies and third-party administrators making parts decisions.
