Uni-Select Inc. has announced that The Parts Alliance is opening three new branches in the United Kingdom. Two of the subsidiaries opened in March and the other one in April.
A total of seven new openings for The Parts Alliance have taken place since the end of 2017 to now and it has also integrated two stores in its network. The company now operates 174 branches and plans to grow its network through select acquisitions.
“The seven greenfield store openings since we are part of Uni-Select are a testament to the continued success of our strategy and provide us with increased coverage in our target market. These new locations will enable improved service for both independent garages and the group’s growing national accounts portfolio. In fact, we recently renewed a large national account for several years,” said Peter Sephton, president and chief executive officer at European Automotive Group.
“Our goal is to help The Parts Alliance expand its customer service and coverage through a combination of select acquisitions and new branch openings. The Parts Alliance has a history of being able to successfully open branches and achieve profitability in a relatively short time period. We are very pleased with the pace of branch openings and expect to continue to expand our network in the coming year,” added Henry Buckley, president and chief executive officer of Uni-Select.
