  1. LKQ are the buyers NOT ECP. Just because LKQ putchased ECP a few years that doesn’t suddenly make ECP LKQ?

    Thankfully lots of jobs saved. The problem now will be the smaller factors in towns & citys with both pages & ecp in. They will eventually go under unfortunately. No way they can now compete

    1. ECP is the uk subsidiary of LKQ, so yes it is ECP that has bought AP

      I can see the little independent factors doing well out of it to be honest, as garages who use pages because they don’t like ECP will now not want to use pages either.

  2. Interesting that Andrew Page spokesman makes no mention of their suppliers who are all waiting to be paid!All of whom probably also lost out when Unipart went down.

  3. Such a shame, my thoughts and best wishes for all the staff, our local Andrew Page has been bought out so many times in different guises, These multi branch companies are trying to rule the world, backed by finance, and ripping up the market. Long live the independents!
