LSA Supplies Ltd is the latest name to commence trading in the automotive aftermarket, supplying garages in the south of England.
Started by Luke Sperring during the first coronavirus lockdown, the business is currently meeting demand from garages by focusing on a specific range of products and services, including Covid-19 safety products.
Sperring previously worked for 10 years at leading southern parts distributor Havant Motor Factors, then owned by father Alistair. Luke enjoyed working in all areas of the business occupying operational and sales roles, learning the intricacies of running a successful motor factor and providing him with the experience to set-up LSA Supplies.
Since beginning trading with LSA Supplies, the company has built up a strong reputation for customer service and supplies products such as oils, filters, braking. batteries, rotating electrics and tools from leading brands such as WAI, Draper, Castrol, Varta and Brembo.
Director Sperring has some big plans for the future: “We’ve received an excellent reception from garages and have operated an inclusive approach, working with other motor factors to ensure a consistent supply to garages, at a time when demand is so high. Throughout the pandemic garages and technicians must stay safe when working on cars and so we’ve adapted our stock to ensure just that, supplying WAI vehicle sanitiser kits and the Steri-7 retail bottle.
“We’ve got big plans for growth and I want to thank suppliers, particularly Richard from WAI, for their support.”
Richard Welland, WAIglobal UK managing director and IAAF vice-president said: “LSA Supplies is a great example of how a business, started in lockdown, can meet the needs of an evolving market and bring likeminded companies along with them. They continue to show flexibility and the company’s progression will be one to watch in the coming years.”
