ECP ACQUIRES 27 UA BRANCHES

Parts distributor Euro Car Parts (ECP) has acquired 27 former Unipart Automotive branches.

Following negotiations with Unipart’s administrators, Mark Orton, Will Wright and Jonny Marston from KPMG, Euro Car Parts has been able to secure the future of sites across England, Scotland and Wales, taking the ECP network to 194 branches.

Martin Gray, CEO of ECP, commented: “We are delighted to have acquired these 27 branches and may yet acquire more. Over the last few days we have been working hard to identify which locations fit into our growth strategy. We are optimistic that many ex-Unipart employees from these locations will now join Euro Car Parts. We look forward to helping them to continue their aftermarket careers and bring an end to the uncertainty and stress these past weeks have brought them and their families.

“In addition to the site acquisitions, we are also thrilled to announce that last week alone we made offers to over 100 ex-Unipart employees. During the next 12-18 months we will create 1,500 new positions, so I meant it when I said last week that we would go the extra mile to assist them. This proves we are serious about attracting, developing and growing the very best talent within our sector” he concluded.

The 27 locations are as follows:  Acton, Avonmouth, Ayr, Bangor, Bath, Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge, Dundee, Dunfirmline, Elgin, Enfield, Folkestone, Grantham, Guildford, Keighley, Kendal, Llandudno, Loughborough, Newark, Norwich, Perth, Sittingbourne, Sunderland, Swansea, Wigan, Worthing and Wrexham.
