Parts Alliance Chairman Steve Fulford has expressed his ‘disappointment’ over the sale of Camberley Auto Factors to Andrew Page.
Fulford founded PA in 1999, when he was also Managing Director of Allparts Automotive, and said in a statement: “Although Camberley Auto Factors has had a change of ownership, it is business as usual for The Parts Alliance. As the leading automotive business group in the UK and Ireland, we are dedicated to delivering quality products and services to all our customers.
â€œThe change was unexpected and disappointing, but the members are unified and our plans remain firmly on track for the future.
â€œOur excellent partnerships with customers and suppliers are of the utmost importance and continue to be our primary focus.â€
It’s unlikely that Camberley can continue as a member, although read a particular way the statement from Fulford suggests that this is the case.
Fulford and Camberley boss Dave Russell are both unavailable for comment for the meantime, but a spokesman said ‘negotiations are ongoing’.
