Euro Car Parts has re-branded a former Hella Ireland branch in Dublin. Now sporting the company’s familiar blue and yellow logo, the Dublin outlet is the chain’s first ECP-branded store in the Republic of Ireland.
Apart from the new signs, the branch has enjoyed significant investment to grow the services on offer. This includes increasing the number of vans from four to twelve and doubling the physical warehouse size to 90,000 sq ft. A modern racking system has also been introduced along with a new trading system.
Headcount will also go up from 31 to 48, with the ultimate goal for all of the improvements is to increase availability and reduce lead time.
Martin Gray, CEO of Euro Car Parts, said: “The business has been operating in Dublin since 1979 and has very experienced staff, some of whom have been working in the industry for over 30 years.
“We’re retaining this expertise and adding Euro Car Parts’ full product range to deliver service that goes the extra mile and continues to support existing customers. We’re expanding what is on offer by investing in additional infrastructure and resources.”
Through parent company LKQ Corp, ECP took over Hella Ireland in August 2016.
