Boucherville, Quebec — February 16, 2018 — Uni-Select has announced the opening of two new branches in the U.K., under its subsidiary Parts Alliance. This comes in addition to the previous expansions last year to Midsomer Norton and Southampton.
The Croydon location opened in January, extending the company’s ability to serve customers in the South East and greater London area. The second location opened in Newcastle. “We’re delighted to continue our branch expansion to establish a true national footprint with a combination of company owned stores and a commitment to members and service partners,” said Peter Sephton, chief executive officer, Parts Alliance. “We welcome all our new team members to our culture of systemized entrepreneurship and look forward to giving our customers increased choice and better service driven by our people culture and technology platform.”
These new store openings represent ongoing investment from the company and an ongoing commitment to endorse and develop their local service. Then new locations will enable improved service for both independent garages and the group’s growing international accounts.
“The opening of two new locations is an opportunity to expand the group’s presence nationally [in the U.K.] and aligns with our strategic plan to grow in key markets,” said Henry Buckley, president and chief executive officer, Uni-Select. “This continues our commitment to have the best customer coverage in the United Kingdom through both owned stores and members.”
The car parts distributor says new branch openings, coupled with select acquisitions and new Parts Alliance members, are key opportunities for it to expand the U.K. coverage.
