The principals of Vantage Marketing have been involved in the automotive sector for over 35 years, working in all aspects of the industry from OEM manufacturing to distribution, marketing and sales, and just about everything in between.
For the past 20+ years we have worked closely with international manufacturers of automotive replacement parts, establishing relationships on four continents. During that period we have been fortunate to visit over 450 factories manufacturing everything from OEM body stampings, to forgings, and various manufacturers of electronic sensors and switches, as well as automotive, motorcycle, agricultural, industrial, and off-road vehicle assembly plants; Ferrari, Polaris…..John Deere…etc.
We consider ourselves “parts people”. If we don’t see it being made, if we aren’t confident of the quality controls in place and the integrity of the management team, we don’t get involved. It has to pass the “IQ Seal of Approval”.
Opportunity, Value and Risk
In every business venture opportunities present themselves. With every opportunity there is value, and there is risk.
Value = Benefit / Cost
(cost includes “risk”)
Risk = the possibility that something bad or unpleasant is going to happen
We apply our principles of Integrated Quality to everything we do. The end result is “sustainable value”; the best products at the best price, with the least amount of risk. There is no value in the cheapest product if it causes problems and comebacks.
With IQ, “Value” is maximized, the “Benefit” remains strong while true “Cost” is decreased when “Risk” is minimized or eliminated.
