The following statement has been issued to CAT from TMD Friction UK:
Following the recent sale of Andrew Page to LKQ Corporation, TMD Friction UK has been in discussions with the company to agree a deal to reinstate its relationship to distribute Mintex products.
Steve Firbank, managing director of TMD Friction UK, said: “We have a strong relationship with LKQ and it was a natural progression to strengthen our relationship with the company for Andrew Page to distribute our Mintex products.
“As well as working closely with our independent partners across the UK, the agreement with LKQ will ensure a wider distribution network for Mintex that has become a product of choice for garages.”
TMD Friction will also launch its Textar product into the UK market in 2017. Textar is a premium original equipment product and will offer factors and garages an alternative brand.
Andrew Page had been amoung the largest distributors of TMD products, but the latter had ceased supply in the wake of Andrew Page’s well-publicised financial trouble.
