WAI-Marathon distribution agreement up and running
WAI products have begun to arrive at Marathon Warehouse Distribution’s National Distribution Centre in Redditch and a 14-branch network throughout the UK. The new WAI-Marathon agreement, signed at Automechanika Birmingham 2018, is designed to improve availability and offer a frequent same-day delivery service.
Richard Welland, WAI managing director: “We have been delighted by the aftermarket’s reception to our new agreement and demonstrates our ability to react to market changes and ensure an almost instant parts supply to more than 85 per cent of the UK population through Marathon.
“Centred around this agreement is our desire to be as easy to deal with as possible and ensure the customers management of stock and core is made simple. We have some exciting developments to announce on this area very shortly.”
Colin Fisher, Marathon Warehouse Distribution sales and marketing director, said: “WAI have been excellent in supporting us with the promotion of the product range and we have received positive feedback from customers.
“Motor factors up and down the UK are already taking full advantage of our range and availability and we are working closely with them to ensure they benefit fully from our partnership with WAI.”
