IGA contacted by GSF on LKQ deal and upcoming sell-on

Published:  16 March, 2023

Since news broke on the LKQ Corporation acquisition of GSF Car Parts parent Uni-Select late last month, the IGA has been contacted by GSF to reassure its members that the business will be fully divested from LKQ in terms of aftermarket parts supply in the UK.

Stuart James, IGA Chief Executive observed: “We are pleased that GSF has reached out directly to the IGA to provide reassurance to independent garages. As the trade body and voice of the independent garage sector, we welcome engagement with the parts sector to ensure garages have access to a fair and competitive aftermarket parts supply chain, and we are satisfied that GSF’s management are committed to ensuring full and fair competition is in place.”

He added: “It is clear from our dialogue with GSF that they are aware of the concerns of the sector and plan on making sure their customers continue to receive a quality and competitive service, ensuring businesses and consumers alike continue to benefit from a fair marketplace.”
