Euro Car Parts is celebrating the official opening of its 100th branch in the UK.
The Harrow branch has been operating for almost three weeks, however today marked the official opening of the site, and a visit from the borough’s Mayor, Cllr Mrinal Choudhury.
The new site has some 12,000 square foot of warehouse space, stocking around 25,000 products and staffed by 19 workers. ECP has set the new branch ambitious targets, the company aims for the site to be making Â£20,000 per day within the next few months.
The Mayor was given a tour of the facility by new Branch Manager Mahmood Piprawala.
Piprawala was previously helping to run ECP’s Wembley branch. He said: “Sukhpal gave me a real challenge. He rang up and said he wanted me to help run his 100th branch. I said yes boss!
“It’s been different to what I’ve done previously but there’s a lot of people here from Wembley so it’s the same faces.”
Speaking at the event the Mayor praised Euro Car Parts for bringing new employment opportunities into the Harrow community: “Euro Car Parts has bought a new light into Harrow. This community doesnâ€™t have much industry, this has bought new jobs for this complex. I think it will give the local businesses a nice boost, if the price is competitive.”
ECP founder Sukhpal Singh Ahluwalia was also present, along with new ECP Chief Operating Officer Andy Hamilton.
