The move was confirmed by Director Ian James this morning. He wouldn’t go into detail about the move, merely saying: “It was a very difficult decision but in the end it was made purely for sound commercial reasons.”
The Parts Alliance will find Motex a welcome addition to the group following the departure of Camberley Auto Factors in July.
Parts Alliance Chairman Steve Fulford said: “Motex has applied to join the PA and hopefully its membership will be ratified at our board meeting next week.
“Our strategy is quite clear; we are going to grow this group by acquisition of the right people or by new membership. This is the first of what could be a number of new members.
“There are a number of very good independent companies across the country who it would be very beneficial for to join our group, for both parties.”
