South Wales-based Spartan Motor Factors has opened two new branches in Blackwood and Swansea.

The Blackwood branch measures 4000 sq ft, has five  drivers and three counter staff while the Swansea branch is 5,500 sq ft, and has two counter staff and three drivers.

These opening are in addition to  a branch in Pontypridd in April and a cooling division specialising in air conditioning and radiator repairs in Abercarn that opened in May.

Director Lee Gratton said: “This takes the total number of branches to 10 with the head office still based in Cardiff. We are actively looking to expand the Spartan network further into England through either acquisitions or branch openings if the right individuals approach us , we have depots in Avonmouth and Weston Super Mare at present”.

Swansea-based factor chain GMF has opened its 15th branch, creating jobs and expanding its network further into West Wales

The 10,000 sq ft purpose-built distribution unit, which will carry £1 million worth of stock, is at West Estate Business Park in Haverfordwest, close to Withybush Industrial Estate and Haverfordwest Airport.

It is the Part’s Alliance owned chain’s fifth outlet covering the region, and is said to be an ideal location from which to provide a delivery service to the coast and surrounding Pembrokeshire area.

It also allows Carmarthen’s distribution area to extend further north.

Branch manager Steve Moon said: “Having started my career as a 16-year-old at a local motor factor and owned my own classic car components business, I’m excited to return to my roots for what is my biggest and most exciting challenge yet, opening the new Haverfordwest branch.”

GMF is the current holder of the CAT Large Factor of the Year award. It is the only factor to have won this trophy four times.
