Andrew Page rejoins Parts Alliance

AP-and-PA_300pxBuying and distribution group The Parts Alliance has welcomed the ‘thrilling’ return of Andrew Page as an associate member – signalling a shift in the UK aftermarket.

The Leeds-based national motor factor adds 93 branches and more than £170 million in turnover to the HgCapital backed business group, adding significantly to its national network.

Group membership now stands at 248 branches with a total turnover above £475 million.

Andrew Page was one of the founding partners of The Parts Alliance in 1999. Its return after an absence of six years includes another former The Parts Alliance member, Camberley Auto Factors, which Andrew Page bought in 2012.

Peter Sephton, Chief Executive of The Parts Alliance, said: “Andrew Page is a long established major force in the automotive aftermarket – it is thrilling to have the business back in the fold.

“I and my colleagues can’t wait to start working closely with Chairman Jim Sumner and all his team and sharing best-in-market systems and practice that exist across The Parts Alliance group and Andrew Page.

Jim Sumner, Executive Chairman of Andrew Page said: “We’re delighted to be back with The Parts Alliance’s rapidly expanding family of businesses. We’ve both undergone major change in recent times but these two leading aftermarket brands have a fantastic synergy and we’re a great match.”

HgCapital acquired four members of The Parts Alliance during 2012 and the Parts Alliance Ltd itself in April this year.

      I thought this is why Andrew Page left the parts alliance in the first place because of the restrictions against competing with other parts alliance members.
      Maybe they’re relaxing their own rules.
