Excel Automotive Group under new ownership
Excel Automotive Group (EAG) has been acquired by Tony Bhogal, owner of Sancorp Ltd and managing director ofAutoelectro, in partnership with son, Harry, from TVS Motor Group Ltd (Universal Components Ltd). The new owners have appointed Adrian Lamb managing director of EAG, while Harry Bhogal will be responsible for the company’s day-to-day operations.
Lamb’s automotive aftermarket experience spans more than three decades. He began his career in parts distribution before moving over to the supply sector.
“I am delighted to be at the forefront of this new chapter in EAG’s history,” he said.“I believe the company has unfinished business, and while the industry has evolved significantly over the years, with the support of Tony and Harry, I am confident we can return the brand to itsformer glory – we’ll certainly give it a go.”
Harry Bhogal, meanwhile, said he was “thrilled” to be creating his own legacy in the automotive sector: “There is a lot of experience for me to draw upon, which I believe will be crucial as I begin this new role; however, I am ready to step up and stamp my own authority, as we look to put EAG at the forefront of customers’ minds.”
EAG stocks more than 2,500 part numbers, which include steering and suspension components, wheel bearing kits, coil springs, torsional vibration dampers and strut top mountings.
The company will soon move into a refurbished warehouse in Leeds, but, in the meantime, business will continue as normal and will supply from Barnsley until the move is concluded.
Adrian Lamb added: “We would like to thank our loyal customers for their patience and support, and we look forward to confirming new and existing projects in the near future.”
