Having set up a supply partnership agreement with the IFA supporting The Parts Alliance National Accounts programme, Gary Kennett has accepted an offer from the IFA to join its board. Kennett understands the operating model of The Parts Alliance Group and the IFA, having previously worked in both.
The Parts Alliance has launched autoparts vending machines in partnership with the AA. The machines are designed to provide the UK’s biggest breakdown provider with access to parts on the road, 24 hours a day. The PA PartVend concept is being piloted in a number of strategic locations, with the machines electronically linked so The Parts Alliance can tell instantly which products are being used and when to replenish the stock.
