GSF Car Parts has received an extended print run of 2017 Job Diaries after finding 5,000 last year was simply not enough to meet demand from trade customers.
In an increasingly digital age, these top quality A4 hardback job diaries remain an absolute must-have point of reference for many garages. The diaries, which are completely bespoke for GSF, are again manufactured by world-renowned UK producer Letts.
GSF Car Parts have announced details of a new prize draw, open to all garage visitors to their stand at the upcoming Mechanex trade show. The two day garage event, which takes place on 10 and 11 November at Surrey’s Sandown Park, will see the company promoting the latest from its Garage Essentials workshop equipment range. Vetech’s range of parts and consumables will also be prominent, including the patented non-flammable DPF cleaner which has been flying off the shelves, following its summer launch.
75 GSF Car Parts (GSF) branches have merged with The Parts Alliance, taking the network to well over 300. 160 of these are under common ownership. Together they give the Solihull-based business group increased coverage in the UK and Ireland.
Vehicle manufacturers chasing higher fuel efficiency, combined with UK road tax incentives to reduce CO2 emissions, have seen turbo charged diesel engines rise rapidly in popularity. While only 11 per cent of UK cars were diesel in 1998, the proportion has risen every year since to nearly 37 per cent today, with a million new diesel registrations each year since 2012, slightly exceeding new petrol vehicles. According to GSF Car Parts, the aftermarket is yet to realise the full potential of the increased demand for turbo hose replacements.
