Key Talking Points

  • It started month 1 of the pandemic 
  • Brand names won’t risk quality 
  • Every day is a new challenge for manufacturers 
  • When is it back to normal? Recast the question “when does it get better?”
  • Improving fill rates and collaboration up and down the supply chain
  • Data planning is essential for forecasting and making better decisions 
  • Allocation- always have the “recipe” 
  • Pricing- packaging costs, inflation, supply/demand, raw material pricing by SKU. More questions are being asked which requires more pricing knowledge and transparency. 
  • Container pricing- $1,500 to 18,000. Airfreight has also increased. 
  • Economic trends- travel is increasing
  • It’s a demand problem not a supply chain problem- it is a good problem, heavy dependence on the automotive industry.

      We are in desperate need of techs. I tried Indeed and was very dissatisfied with the "talent" they sent us. I am considering Find A Wrench they post on Indeed as well as Zip Recruiter and some 90 other companies as well as social media. Has anyone tried them or ACT Auto Staffing?

      Dorman gives people greater freedom to fix vehicles by constantly developing new repair solutions that put owners and technicians first. By always innovating, Dorman has led the way in growing the aftermarket. Here you will see a few examples of a Dorman OE Fix. An OE FIX is a Dorman repair solution you can’t get from the original equipment manufacturer. It means they found a situation where they believe the OEM wasn’t giving repair professionals what they wanted, so we fixed it. Everything Dorman does is centered around providing customer value, both in the quality of products, and the creativity of solutions. Our engineers and designers go out of their way to save repair technicians time and save vehicle owners money. Want to really go under the hood?

      Key Talking Points
      Most shop owners want a manager that will take over everything- how do you groom/grow/mentor that person? What are the traits needed? You can’t buy your freedom, you have to grow it. Potato metaphor- 1 potato can be anything if you know what to do Manage instead of mentoring- “owners love the thought of the manager.” You can’t hire the perfect manager. Your business model can be completely different than what they are used to. Retail Manager (providing the experience for the customers, is the shop clean? Is the coffee ready? High level of attention to detail, the brand of the business), Sales Manager (responsible for sales, scheduling, comebacks, managing the flow during the day), Production Manager (understand capacities of employees and continue to grow them, the chess master, tracking hours and avoid “donkey day/donkey hour”) PPP loan during COVID- upgrade the business The money is made at the edge of chaos- where is the line before chaos? You get paid off of what you get done not the sale Donkey day on Wednesdays- what do you need to do to finish the week before they “donkey down” and lose motivation.
