Arnold Clark Autoparts is set to open a branch in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, as its nationwide network expands further.
Racking has already been installed in the new 25,000 ft2 premises, ahead of the opening planned for September. An experienced team has been brought in to get the orders in from day one.
Traditionally associated with Scotland’s central belt, ACA has opened several branches in England. Craig McCracken, group factor manager at Arnold Clark Autoparts, said: “It’s an exciting time for the company, as we expand further with new branches across the Midlands and north England to serve more trade customers than ever before”.
“Continued investment will ensure we are firmly placed to meet the challenges of the future, serving independent garages with extensive availability of high-quality products.”
Chesterfield is a well-known, if congested area for motor factors. Once celebrated as a ‘centre of excellence’ by the IAAF, the town is home to well-known businesses including David Clarke’s Autosupplies and Louisa Mitchell’s RRD Automotive. The nearby Markham Vale industrial estate was also the site of Andrew Page’s ill-fated National Distribution Centre.
