Suppliers MafcoBell and DL Products have merged, forming a new company Mafco Autobar.

Both companies are known for their own brand products, as well as for distributing other names, including Trico, Abro and Supercool from the USA and Jubilee and Bailcast from the UK.

For 30 years DL Products have supplied Autobar workshop consumables while MafcoBell produced similar lines, albeit in larger trade packs that were aimed at accessory shops and factors.

A statement from the newco said: “By combining both ranges, along with the brand distribution that both companies currently offer, we believe that we can now offer the automotive aftermarket a complete range that is second to none”.

“We look forward to providing an improved service to all of our customers with our expanded ranges” the statement concluded.

The new company was registered in July and started trading on the first day of October.
