Airtex and A1 Motor Stores strike supply deal


Airtex timing kit

A1 members will now be able to source water pump and timing belt kits from Airtex, one of the world’s largest automotive pump manufacturers.

Launched more than 85 years ago in 1935, Airtex is a dedicated original equipment (OE) manufacturer, with its European technology and manufacturing centre paying testament to its commitment to quality.

Based in Zaragoza in Spain, the fully ISO certified 13,000m2 plant employs almost 150 staff and has the capacity to produce more than five million water pumps every year.

The water pump kits developed by Airtex include an Airtex OE water pump and a Dayco timing belt, as well as OE quality pulleys and idlers required for a complete system replacement.

A1 members will benefit from the company’s extensive range of kits, as the A12U warehouse will hold the top 50 products, which equates to more than 80% of the UK car parc. Furthermore, all kits have a three year, no quibble, warranty period and unlimited mileage.

UK & Ireland Sales Manager, Andy Taylor, said: “We’re thrilled that we’re bringing our fantastic Airtex water pump kits to A1 members to supplement our TRICO wiper blades. They’re always incredible customers to work with and very loyal to the products they trust.

“We’re also very pleased that we could further strengthen our relationship with A1, a company that we’ve been working with for nearly 15 years! So, we’re excited for the next stage of our growth with the Airtex brand in the UK.”
