PARTS ALLIANCE OPENS NEW BRANCHES

The Parts Alliance has been enhancing its UK coverage with a number of branch openings.

Weston-super-Mare under The Parts Alliance brand and GSF branches in the Essex towns of Colchester and Woodford have opened for business.

BBC Superfactors opened an extra Blackpool branch in June, while branches in Middlesbrough, Croydon, Leeds, Newcastle, Indian Queens and Durham have all been added since January.

“It’s been hectic,” said Tony Shearer, Operational Development Director at The Parts Alliance. “Despite a glorious summer and the holiday season, we don’t seem to have seen any kind of dent in our trading at Blackpool, instead it’s been growing steadily thanks to a good branch team.”

GSF Colchester has a 5,500 square feet facility utilising four vans and two motorcycles for trade customers.

“It’s great to get the doors open,” said Emma Tiernan, Divisional Director at GSF Car Parts. “From day one, we’ve had trade accounts open and deliveries going out so it’s been a really positive start.”

Steve Gray, Divisional Director of The Parts Alliance has overseen the opening of the largest site. The Parts Alliance Weston-super-Mare has just opened with extensive stock holding over 6,500 square feet premises.

“We’re working with four delivery vehicles initially,” said Gray. “Weston-super-Mare is a key location, we’ll be supporting trade to independent garage customers and national accounts in the surrounding area too.”
