Quinton Hazell back in business

Tetrosyl's QH displays new wares at trade show

Published:  22 October, 2013

ONE of the most famous brands in the aftermarket made a re-appearance last week at the Equip Auto show in Paris.

Visitors to the show would have been pleased to note the brand, now owned by UK chemical firm Tetrosyl, has a stand displaying an extensive range of brakes and clutches, steering and suspension components, water pumps as well as much else.

Speaking earlier this year, Tetrosyl boss Peter Schofield said: "The energy, expertise and commitment of the team is inspiring"

QH was formed in 1946 by Sir Eric Quinton Hazell who built it up into one of the largest brands in the aftermarket. More recently, was sold first to the Affina Group and then to the Dana Corporation. The firm was then sold to Klarius, which went into administration in February 2013. The brand was rescued by Tetrosyl and the factory in Colwyn Bay was sold to India-based firm Mark Water Pumps Ltd.
