EAG and Suplex announce coil spring supply agreement
Excel Automotive Group (EAG) and Suplex have agreed a deal that sees the Leeds-based company become the exclusive distributor of more than 3,500 coil spring references, following the closure of the Suplex Sheffield warehouse.
Suplex coil springs are either made from high-quality chrome, silicone chrome or vanadium spring steel and are coated with a zinc phosphate coating, which helps prevent them from corroding.
When developing new springs, a technical data sheet is drawn up – which includes all the appropriate parameters. Based on these, a prototype is created, which is then scrutinised by various test procedures, such as metallographic examinations, mechanical material and longevity tests, before a spring goes into production.
EAG’s Tony Bhogal and managing director, Adrian Lamb, said in a joint statement: “We are delighted to have reached agreement with Suplex, a company that has established itself with a reputation renowned for quality products. It is no secret that EAG has been looking to strengthen its product offering, supplying an eclectic range of products, and this Suplex deal fits the bill.”
Suplex general manager, Graham Masheder, added: “Working with EAG is a great opportunity to expand the Suplex product in the aftermarket. Suplex is confident that EAG, a trusted business, will develop the Suplex brand even further, whilst maintaining the needs of its customer and the consumer.”
EAG is stocking approximately 3,500 Suplex part numbers, all of which are accessible on MAM AutoCat and available for same-day local delivery or next-AM national delivery.
