TrustFord opens two more PartsPlus sites
TrustFord has opened two new PartsPlus sites as the dealer group nears the completion of its new wholesale parts network expansion. The new sites, in Hull and Lincoln, were both opened on 17 July by Stuart Foulds, chairman and chief executive of TrustFord, accompanied by Dean Kemsley, general manager, and members of the board. The openings follow investment in Ford’s Quick Lane tyre and autocentre chain and brings the total number of TrustFord-operated PartsPlus sites to 14 across England, Northern Ireland and Scotland. A further site is due to open later this year.
PartsPlus Centres provide services to support the sale of trade parts directly to franchise groups, independent repairers and body shops, offering extensive, competitively priced Ford, Motorcraft and Omnicraft parts, delivered with local business knowledge and expertise. They also offer delivery of parts in under an hour to regular customers within a 30 minute drive of the centre.
Stuart Foulds commented: “Our new sites in Hull and Lincoln give us the scale and resource to meet our customers’ parts needs in new parts of the country. These openings, part of our network-wide investment in Ford of Britain’s wholesale parts initiative, enable us to better serve our customers’ needs and open up fresh opportunities for us as a business.
“At TrustFord, we’re committed to driving the standard in customer care, and our new expanded parts offering will enable us to do just that, in addition to supporting local repair and bodyshop businesses.”
