AAMCO Partners with Global Powertrain Systems
Nov. 30, 2015—AAMCO Franchise announced last week a partnership with its sister company, Global Powertrain Systems (GPS), that will give AAMCO franchisees immediate access to a vertically integrated supply chain with preferred pricing on the brand’s core transmission category.
"Global Powertrain Systems has given our franchisees the ability to control the cost, quality and speed of delivery on our highest ticket item, transmissions," said Brian O'Donnell, senior vice president of franchise sales at AAMCO Transmission Inc. "This ultimately has driven greater efficiencies for the brand, while giving us the opportunity to focus on growing our Total Car Care business and capture more market share in the general automotive repair industry."
"Now that AAMCO has a partnership with GPS, the business model is very simple to operate and makes it easier to run a successful business and with less support," said Sherri Underwood, co-owner of AAMCO service center in Levittown, Pa. "The benefits of the partnership with GPS are endless. There is a better warranty to offer our customers and we are saving the salary that we would have to pay a builder. It also reduces the challenges of maintaining a specialized labor workforce."
