Unipart's network has traded for 25 years

Unipart is on the hunt for new recruits to its Express Factors network after redeveloping the business format as a franchise programme.

Express Factors has traded for more than 25 years, distributing Unipart-branded products to workshops.

And Unipart has begun a 5-year strategy to grow its share of this market.

The company is targeting potential recruits from a variety of backgrounds, including entrepreneurs, investors and managers of similar businesses.

Franchisees could also be managers or owners of VM dealerships wishing to expand to become an all parts supplier, motor factor or accessory shop.

Gary Carscadden, Express sales and operations director, said: “An outlet can be a stand-alone business operating in its own territory (via homere), or a ‘bolt-on’ module working alongside a complementary host location, for example, a car dealership.”
