AUTOELECTRO AND CAAR SIGN DEAL


A supply deal has been struck between Autoelectro and accessory parts retailer CAAR.

The partnership will see the latter take advantage of Autoelectro’s extensive portfolio of remanufactured starter motors and alternators including its surcharge-free non-exchange (NEX) units. In addition, the former will be rolling out its recently-launched Active Inventory Management System (AIMS) to CAAR’s supplier base; allowing them to maximise their chances of returning old core as well as keeping close tabs on any outstanding surcharges owed,  following the company’s new pricing strategy.

Tony Bhogal, Managing Director of Autoelectro commented: “Having held discussions with senior staff at CAAR, we have agreed a competitive package for its members, to ensure they and their workshop customers receive the best value-for-money but premium quality product available”, he continued: “CAAR members will have access to the best range and availability of rotating electrics, along with a free next working-day AM delivery.”

Adding to his sentiment, CAAR MD David Owen said: “We are delighted to welcome Autoelectro on-board as an approved CAAR supplier, and the appointment has been warmly welcomed by CAAR members, many of whom were already using them for their rotating electrics.”
