Steve Tranter, a long serving Product Manager with CES UK and The Parts Alliance, has died after losing his battle with illness.
He built his career in the aftermarket, which stretched across 40 years.
Steve spent 20 years working for CES, a Parts Alliance Group business, latterly moving to a role with The Parts Alliance in Chester for whom he was Product Manager for Emissions.
Steve was widely known for his personality, kindness and above all, his technical expertise. He was willing to share his knowledge and contributed to articles in the automotive aftermarket press.
His first job was as a replenishment officer, later moving high up the career ladder as a Managing Director and Operations Director with different businesses before joining CES.
Away from work Steve liked all things automotive and was also an avid follower of Manchester United.
Steve leaves a partner, Colette, and two children. His funeral will take place on Friday, 10 February at St Thomas’ All Saints Church, Ellesmere Port.
