The Parts Alliance Group acquires BMS Superfactors
The Parts Alliance has acquired BMS Superfactors, their Greater Manchester-based associate member. BMS Superfactors has four branches in Bury, Oldham, Rochdale and Dukinfield, collectively employing over 120 staff.
Founded 25 years ago, BMS Superfactors begun as a small accessory shop and has grown into a business currently completing over 1,000 trade deliveries each day. Since joining The Parts Alliance in December 2012 they have posted consistent double-digit annual sales growth and have invested to achieve industry-leading service levels, with over 97 per cent of orders delivered within one hour.
“We’re delighted to be taking what seems a very natural next step with The Parts Alliance,” said Tony Parr, managing director of BMS Superfactors. “Joining the group and gaining access to their OE parts ranges, outstanding AlliCat parts catalogue and overall business support has been central to our success to date.
“For staff and customers, it’s very much ‘business as usual’ but we now move forward on an even stronger footing, being part of one of the largest motor factor groups in the UK, combining systemised entrepreneurship with excellent financial stability.”
Peter Sephton, chief executive of The Parts Alliance said: “We welcome BMS Superfactors and all our new colleagues.
“The growth they have achieved bears powerful testament to the skills of the management team led by Tony Parr, Chris Morley and Neil Hardisty as well as the hard work of a loyal staff team. This important acquisition strengthens our group’s position in one of the UK’s prime metropolitan areas.
“Chris and Neil will continue to run the business, whilst Tony will be available to help as necessary.
“We very much look forward to developing the business further under what’s a well-regarded local brand by bringing more of our technology, distribution and sourcing capabilities to support Chris and his team wherever we can.”
BMS becomes a wholly-owned business within The Parts Alliance Group (PAGL) but will continue to trade under its own well established name. Chris Morley will continue to lead the business and will be joined by Neil Hardisty on The Parts Alliance’s leadership team.
