Prasco turns 10
Prasco UK Ltd, or to be precise the original company behind the supplier of independently certified crash replacement parts, is celebrating its 10th anniversary today.
Ten years ago to the day, managing director Kelvyn Waugh and procurement director, Darren Egan formed the business and over the past decade, the duo have grown the company beyond all recognition.
From a humble small unit with a single delivery vehicle, the business now operates out of a colossal 80,000sqft warehouse and, through its large vehicle fleet, is now able supply any repairer within the UK, including Northern Ireland, with almost any part and repair peripheral within hours of receiving an order.
In March 2014, the business officially became part of the pan-European Prasco family, effectively unifying its pan-European investments including parts supply specialists in Italy, Germany, Spain, and Croatia, a move which ensures Prasco’s progression to become the leading supplier of OE and certified non-OEM crash repair parts throughout the continent.
Prasco UK Ltd now boasts a product line in excess of 18,000 – a figure that is expected to double by the end of the year through further inward investment and partnership development.
Commenting on the major milestone, Kelvyn said, ‘It’s incredible to think that here we are, 10 years on from forming the business, and we’re the UK’s leading supplier of independently certified replacement parts with a network of bodyshops using our products the length and breadth of Britain.
‘Ten years in business is a major milestone, but when we consider just what we’ve achieved over the past decade makes myself and Darren really excited for what the next 10 years will bring.’
