Digging Into Walbro’s Performance In 2021: Talkin’ Shop With Walbro

“After eight months of this newly formed business unit and bringing additional staff members in, I can’t say how proud I am of the team and how they’ve embraced the vision, strategy, defined culture, and working through the tactics to make things happen,” Quick said. “We are nearing the best sales ever.”

On this episode of Talkin’ Shop with Walbro, Host Tyler Kern talked with Christopher Quick, President, Walbro Aftermarket Products Group, Bob McCue, Channel Marketing Director, Walbro, Elton Fisch, Engineering Director. They dug into how Walbro is performing as the company heads into the end of the year.

“After eight months of this newly formed business unit and bringing additional staff members in, I can’t say how proud I am of the team and how they’ve embraced the vision, strategy, defined culture, and working through the tactics to make things happen,” Quick said. “We are nearing the best sales ever.”

This good information in the sales department comes as the team at Walbro has faced multiple supply chain interruptions, logistics issues, resource issues, and in the midst of a global pandemic. The team has really worked hard, made each other accountable, and carried out the mission, according to Quick.

“We’ve been hit with higher costs all the way around that has hurt us from a P&L perspective, but the volume demand is assisting with the pain in the short term,” Quick said.

The year started with a significant strategy shift, which included expanding other market segments. They’ve also beefed up their product offerings and increased service and dialogue with their partners. The new product offerings include power sports, chain saw, bar, and chain, as well as propellers.

Down the line, they also want to look into strategic acquisitions to help fuel their growth.
