Unipart picked up Fastest Growing Supplier Award from Page earlier in the year

The month gone has seen a number of supply arrangement deals signed by major aftermarket companies. Firstly, accessory distributor Saxon has made an agreement with Unipart Autoparts for distribution of Unipart branded products in the UK.

Neil Haines, CEO of Saxon stated that the deal allowed the company to add to its portfolio of bands and that it developed his strategy of working with ‘market leading quality partners’.

Gerry O’Hara Managing Director of Unipart Autoparts noted that the deal provided a ‘winning formula’ for working with their joint customers.
Meanwhile, A1 Motor Stores has added Bradford-based Autoelectro to its list of suppliers. Autoelectro is a large remanufacturer with a wide range of references.

Autoelectro’s Managing Director, Tony Bhogal said: “We have invested heavily in the latest test equipment to understand, test and check the newest applications, which incorporate complex electronics”.

Simon Salloway, A1’s Head of Operations, commented: “I know our members will benefit enormously from having them on board”. Salloway knows more than most about the rotating electrics market having joined A1 from AMK. Also in distribution this month, cooling part supplier Nissens received a gong from the TETMOT expo for being the supplier with the best logistics over the past year. A ‘proud and humble’ VP Klavs T. Pederson received the award on behalf of the company.
