Pedders authorised dealership network: With the Pedders franchising operation firmly in place, Pedders have recently built a strong authorised dealership network to provide much needed coverage in a variety of locations. Authorised dealerships are privately run businesses which maintain the Pedders philosophy and offer the Pedders range of products and services. Authorised dealers are mainly chosen from already successful automotive aftermarket businesses which agree to undergo Pedders training and promote Pedders products and services within their own specific communities. Following appointment, Pedders provide ongoing support to the authorised dealer network to ensure corporate consistency is maintained and to help build each individual business to become the preferred steering and suspension outlet in their given district.
