GPC Asia Pacific has significantly more buying power than its closest competitor. Our customers know their parts are sourced from quality suppliers that meet compliance and regulatory standards, and that parts are passed on at competitive prices.

Our China Sourcing Office is dedicated to sourcing, QA and compliance, and conducts regular inspections and audits. The Asia Pacific Quality Control team includes accredited engineers in Australia and China who conduct rigorous testing against exacting standards to validate product specifications and performance.

Our procurement approach is based on quality and innovation, not just lowest prices. We’re also eager for niche products with exclusive distribution rights, because our extensive footprint means we can provide real alternatives for our customers.

Overall procurement covers four main areas:

  • Sourcing products for distribution centres and stores, with a focus on quality assurance and positive relationships
  • Electronic cataloguing to make sure that our product data is clean, accurate and matched to relevant vehicles
  • Highly detailed demand planning, managed by computer algorithms, historical data and real people
  • Category and range planning to optimise how our products appear in catalogues, in stores and on shelves

In addition, we’re backed by the reach and reputation of Genuine Parts Company, the global leader in automotive aftermarket parts and accessories. This aligns us with world-class knowledge, innovation, systems, data and security.
