DRIVETECH 4X4 EXPANDS DISTRIBUTION NETWORK

Drivetech 4×4, Australia’s fastest growing brand in the 4WD industry, is now available in more places around the country through NAPA Auto Parts

The transition has happened throughout 2020, with the full Drivetech 4×4 range now available in all NAPA Auto Parts locations as a prime 4×4 product range.

Drivetech 4×4 Manager, Ben Lavis, is excited about the change.
“It means we’ve got more locations for our dealers to access parts, and we’ll be able to grow our 4WD knowledge base through NAPA Auto Parts,” Ben said.

“We’ve still got our dedicated Drivetech 4×4 Reps visiting customers, setting up showrooms and providing value and advice; being distributed through NAPA Auto Parts just means we’ll have more stock available in more locations.”

NAPA Auto Parts currently has 28 locations across the country, with another 40 or more projected to come over the coming years.
Those behind the NAPA Auto Parts name say while it may be new to the Australian automotive aftermarket, it has a heritage of more than 90 years in America, being a part of the world’s largest provider of automotive aftermarket parts.

They say that what is even more impressive is that NAPA Auto Parts will have just as much automotive aftermarket heritage here in Australia, through its building block brands Ashdown-Ingram, Covs, Global Auto Spares and R&E Auto Parts.

These Australian aftermarket icons will be transitioning to become the NAPA Auto Parts network, and a leading choice for parts by automotive specialists and professionals.

NAPA Auto Parts says this means the iconic Drivetech 4×4 range will join with local leaders Great Whites and Thunder, making for an unbeatable combination of 4WD options.

“It’s such a great outcome that Drivetech 4×4 dealers can now purchase their reliable recovery gear from the same place as the best driving lights on the market, along with Rival bars, high quality work lights, and battery management options,” Ben said.

“It means the very best fit outs possible can be made, with everything organised through a single location. It’s a great value add for Drivetech 4×4, with the best outcomes provided for our customers.”
Better still, the relationship with NAPA Auto Parts has meant more Drivetech 4×4 stock is currently available through the use of state-based distribution centres.

Rather than having every order around the country sent out of Sydney, parts are now stored in destinations in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth, providing greater access for more specialists, dealers and fitters.

An impressive Drivetech 4×4 range
The Drivetech 4×4 range of 4WD accessories includes winches, recovery gear, underbody armour, awnings, suspension, snorkels, Rival bar-work and more.

Drivetech 4×4 says it is driven by quality, so you can rely on the range to get you to your destination and back again, no matter the terrain.
The recovery equipment includes dual speed winches, snatch straps, recovery kits, kinetic rope, TRED recovery devices and high lift jacks to suit anything the Australian environment can throw at you.

Snorkels, suspension and flares will help you tackle the tougher locations, while the selection of awnings, awning tents and mesh make the destination much more comfortable.

Complete solutions for your 4×4
Underbody armour is a highly sought-after addition to any 4WD, with the Drivetech 4×4 range being supported by industry leader, Rival.

The comprehensive range of armours suits a wide variety of vehicles, adding protection to control arms, fuel tanks, engines, radiators and more.
NAPA Auto Parts says this high-quality range is complemented by Rival Bumpers, giving drivers a great combination between style and protection.

Being an alloy bumper, it is made from 6mm alloy with steel brackets and ribbing, providing strength and protection for the vehicle, without the disadvantages of a heavy steel bar.

With integrated towing points, fog/driving lights, winch mounts and low weight, each Rival Bumper has been independently tested to meet ADR69 Air Bag Compliance Standards.

Designed with the installer in mind, they are said to be very easy to install, with any experienced fitter quickly noticing how light they are, their exceptional build quality, stylish unobtrusive design and excellent approach angles.

When it comes to high performance lighting and driving lights, NAPA Auto Parts says there’s only once clear choice – Great Whites.

As one of the first brands in Australia to launch an LED light bar, Great Whites has improved visibility for 4WD enthusiasts for years.
The latest range, Attack, continues to impress, with the flagship 220 Series projecting light up to 1km from the vehicle. The latest addition to the range includes an alloy finish to the 220 and 170 Series round driving lights.

No 4WD is complete without reliable electrical components, which is where NAPA Auto Parts says specialists rely on Thunder; an affordable and reliable range of LED lighting, switches, chargers, battery boxes, solar panels and accessories.

It says the most popular product by far is the 20A DCDC Charger, which is said to be known for its reliability and ease of installation. The heart of any dual battery system, it connects batteries easily to solar or 12V power to keep batteries charged and weekends more enjoyable.
