ECP merger

Big plans for new merger

Published:  25 April, 2013

Euro Car Parts has announced it will merge with Major Benelux Group, creating one of the largest aftermarket parts organisations in Europe.

Commenting on the merge with Netherlands-based Sator Holding, ECP MD Sukhpal Singh Ahluwalia, said: "Imagine 11 million disc brake pads stacked up, they would reach 175 miles above the ground or 32 times the height of Mount Everest. Or 8 million oil and air filters - that's one for each person living in London. Such is the volume of car parts sold annually by a new distribution group, announced today."

Speaking about the new organisation's aspirations, Ahluwalia declared: "We intend to use this power and world-sourcing capability to drive down the cost of car parts, to the benefit of Europe's hard-pressed motorists and fleet operators."

The merger has been financed by LKQ Corporation, which includes Euro Car Parts. Murmours of further acquisitions in Europe have already been heard... Watch this space.
