  1. Really feel for anyone at AP that may lose their job at such a difficult time. Lets hope they get snapped up by one of the great independents.

    The aftermarket really is best left to independents – the UK has a sorry history of failed nationals. They have all tried and not lasted long with the same old business model – big central warehouse, head office, 200 + depots, area managers that just go about winding up the branch staff, not really adding value.
    There isn’t a buying advantage that covers the additional costs.

    The current big three will all fail. Just a matter of time.
