Euro Car Parts has invested in a new storage facility for its collision repair products.

The 141,000 square foot site in Swadlincote has been secured for ten years with the company. ECP says a unique agreement with building owners GE Capital means the company can outfit the building to its exact requirements. There is also space for a mezzanine floor should ECP need it in the future.

Swadlincote is only a few miles down the road from ECP’s National Distribution Centre in Tamworth. Managing Director Sukhpal Singh Ahluwalia says the move is proof of ECP’s growth over the past two years: “The two main drivers behind the move were to meet the needs of our fast-expanding network and also to provide a dedicated storage facility for our LKQ-backed collision repair programme.”

“Supplying crash repair hard parts is a whole new area for us and our Platinum Plus range is set to revolutionise the sector.”

Alongside the announcement ECP has also confirmed the locations of its next branches. Crewe, Southport, Rotherham and Kettering are all on the map as are new locations in Wales.
