The voice of the independent garage sector

New garage network launched by LKQ Euro Car Parts and supplier partners

A new garage network, 1TEC Auto Hub, has been launched by LKQ Euro Car Parts, along with MPM Oil, Pagid, Schaeffler, Shell, Valeo, Varta, and ZF Aftermarket,

Garages that sign up to the new chain will gain access to technical and diagnostic, marketing support and materials, business support and training including access to LKQ Euro Car Parts’ LKQ Academy, along with a rewards platform.

Commenting on the launch of 1TEC Auto Hub, LKQ Euro Car Parts Chief Commercial Officer Kevan Wooden said: “Collaboration is key in these times of rapid technological and regulatory change in our sector, while access to the latest tools, training and technical data is vital to garages working on modern vehicles.This is why, through 1TEC Auto Hub, we’re seeking to create a network that supports a professional community of independent workshops and empowers them to futureproof their businesses. 1TEC Auto Hub has secured impressive backing from some of our industry’s leading brands. Each brings with them unique benefits for the network, which will be key as together we work with our 1TEC Auto Hub garages and help them reach their full potential.”

He added: “In a market where poor service can have such tangible implications, we recognise the importance of developing trust with customers. Our ambition is to develop 1TEC Auto Hub into a brand that consumers actively seek out for best-in-class customer service and efficient, effective service maintenance and repair work.”
