The newest branch of Tetrosyl-owned Spartan Motor Factors is set to open in Scunthorpe, North Lincs.

Spartan Scunthorpe

Situated in a 7,000 sq ft building, the new factor will open next Monday, August 16 with £500k of stock ready to be delivered to the surrounding area by seven delivery vans.

Darron Nixon will be Branch Manager. Nixon is well placed to help the branch succeed as he previously has experience from working at Unipart, Andrew Page and the Parts Alliance.


Since going into administration in March 2020, Spartan has had a revival of fortunes under new ownership. Recent branch openings include Cannock, Tamworth, Lampeter, Whitchurch and Shrewsbury, with a branch in Bradford set to open in early September.


Spartan Operations Director Lee Gratton told us: “We are actively looking for teams of experienced motor factor people to open up branches for us all over the country”.

Interestingly, the Scunthorpe branch is in a building previously occupied by Godfrey Autoparts, a chain which was also once owned by a Tetrosyl holdings company.
