UK’S NEWEST FACTOR JOINS IAAF

The UK’s youngest independent motor factor has joined the IAAF.

Formed when the CMA ruled that a certain number of Andrew Page sites had to be sold to allow the ECP take over to go ahead in September 2018, ASAP has nine former Page locations throughout the UK, including Wakefield, York, Sunderland, Scunthorpe, Hove, Gloucester, Liphook, Heathrow and Gatwick, and has a fleet of more than 70 vehicles.

Heathrow is the company’s commercial vehicle arm of the business trading as CV Spares. ASAP also has the sole contract to supply all parts for Ground Equipment at Gatwick Airport.

The ambitious motor factor offers a selection of well-known, experience aftermarket brands with thousands of parts in stock, serving the trade and the public in-store, with same-day delivery direct to a customer’s door.

Derek Wales, managing director of ASAP, said: “Although ASAP is a new name to the market, we continue to trade with the original Andrew Page values and our loyal customers appreciate this, with most of the employees working with us for more than 15 years. The customer centric approach has worked well over the years and will be pushed to new heights, and we look forward to working closely with IAAF members in the future.”

Mike Smallbone, head of membership development at IAAF, said: “ASAP has a very experienced team and we look forward to working with Derek and his team over the coming months.”

  1. If ASAP don’t get some stock on their shelves quickly they are doomed to failure. Their stock is abysmal. I was an Andrew Page customer for over 25 years. I remember paying a cheque to Sunderland branch for over 24,000 quid a few years ago, be lucky if i can spend 240 quid with them now. Great bunch of lads there as well
