Company that specializes in vehicular filtration announces aggressive future growth plans


Robin McCall :
IPC Global Solutions, a leader in vehicular filtration, is celebrating its 20th anniversary during 2007. The company specializes in providing private label solutions for major USA-based filter producers and provides a full line of filters to the automotive retail, warehouse distribution, programmed distribution, heavy-duty and commercial market channels.

“As aftermarket companies look outside the borders of the U.S. to source low cost products, this is a discipline we have mastered during the last 20 years of business,” said Michael Bowden, president and CEO, IPC Global Solutions. “We are excited to celebrate our 20th anniversary and we want the industry to know of our established presence in eight countries, engineering and manufacturing filtration products in 22 different factories. We make access to the world’s manufacturing capacity a seamless exercise for our customers because we have vast experience in managing a network of manufacturers all over the world. We have already qualified and developed global manufacturers to the point where their products meet the quality requirements of our customers in the United States and abroad. ”

As a result, Bowden says companies can tap into IPC’s product and process engineering expertise and ability to manage and deliver complete filtration programs for its customers. IPC offers a full-line solution of air, cabin air, oil, fuel, hydraulic and transmission filter products. “Our custom-designed products and fulfillment services further add to our ability to help customers enhance their competitive position in their respective markets,” added Bowden.

Bowden explains that the company’s anniversary also marks a commitment to increase its presence in the aftermarket with a new marketing and sales initiative. “We will be putting forth significant resources to let the industry know of our highly competitive pricing and our aggressive introduction of late model application numbers to our stocking decisions,” explained Bowden. “Plus, we offer many value-added services such as vendor managed inventory, electronic data compliance with AAIA standards, and supply chain management.”
