New garage scheme from LKQ Euro Car Parts

A new garage network brand has been launched by a motor factor along with seven of its suppliers.

The ‘1Tec’ network has been developed by LKQ Euro Car Parts in conjunction with Schaeffler, Pagid, Shell, MPM, Valeo, Varta, and ZF Aftermarket.

Membership will provide garages with benefits, including access to technical data, marketing support and materials, business support, and access to the LKQ Academy training portal, as well as a rewards platform.

Kevan Wooden, chief commercial officer at ECP said: “1Tec Auto Hub has secured impressive backing from some of our industry’s leading brands. Each brings with them unique benefits for the network, which will be key as together we work with our 1Tec Auto Hub garages and help them reach their full potential.”

1Tec is the latest of ECP’s branded garage network schemes. In 2015 the company announced the launch of the ‘Autofirst’ network which later entered a deal with the RAC. The Autofirst network replaced an earlier scheme called ‘Autocrew’ which had been launched in partnership with Bosch – much to the chagrin of garage owners who were already signed to the rival Bosch Car Service network.
