MOTOR WORLD STORES TO JOIN A1 NETWORK

motorworldEffective immediately, A1 has added 37 branches to its motor factor membership. The move represents a major milestone for the group, with the newest stores ideally placed around England and Wales to ensure even greater coverage to its customers.

In a statement, A1’s Head of Operations, Simon Salloway, said: “I am thrilled to welcome Motor World Ltd to A1 Motor Stores.

“Over the coming weeks, the A1 Support Team will work alongside the team at Motor World Ltd to integrate into the A1 set-up, and I’m sure all approved suppliers will join me in formally welcoming the organisation into the group.”

Motor World Sales and Operations Director Ian Lawrence said: “While it’s true we’ve got direct relationships with many suppliers and they are shipping to our stores already, joining A1 gives us an extra edge.”

“I think there are an awful lot of benefits for Motor World in joining A1, but the overriding reason for wanting to join was to increase the ranges we’ve got and the number of suppliers that are available to us. The deals are already set up with suppliers to A1. There’s an opportunity for us to become more involved in A1 too. Because of the scale I think joining forces with other retailers we will be able to introduce new ranges” he concluded.
