GSF says exhausts sales surge reflects brand support

GSF Car Parts has announced a 30% year-to-date increase in sales of automotive exhausts compared to 2023 — and has told Aftermarket the surge reflects the increasing popularity of its A2A brand.

A GSF spokesperson said today the record increase highlights the company’s tracking of growth in the market, as opposed to a general perception that the auto exhaust sector is declining.

In addition to enhancing automotive parts, GSF said its investment in staff training and increased delivery frequencies is underpinning business growth.

The company’s A2A brand, manufactured exclusively by a leading OEM/OES provider, has been embraced by garages who have grown tired of common issues with inferior products such as increased noise and after-fitment difficulties, GSF said.

Stuart Parry, GSF Car Parts product manager for exhausts said: “By enhancing our offerings and focusing on quality, we are not only meeting but exceeding the expectations of our clients and solidifying our position as a leader in the automotive parts industry.”

Aftermarket reported on May 21 that GSF is preparing to open a 500,000 sq ft national distribution centre in Wolverhampton.

A GSF spokesperson said the facility is expected to come on stream in the fourth quarter of this year.
