FMP (originally Foreign Motor Parts) was originally founded in 1996, although the company in its current form dates to 2004. Founded by Neil Melmoth, the business had several branches covering an area between Swansea and Port Talbot with around 40 staff and 16 vans.  

Glaze Autoparts now wholly owned by AAG

These latest deals brings the number of UK motor factor businesses acquired by the group in 2019 to 14 and around 30 locations.
