ECP acquires Hella Ireland

Euro Car Parts/LKQ has acquired Dublin-based Hella Ireland.

Already with branches in Northern Ireland, the move gives ECP its first base in the Republic of Ireland and extends its coverage of the Irish market.

The current team based in the Dublin Hella office will become part of ECP but for the short-term will continue to trade as Hella Ireland.

Sukhpal Singh Ahluwalia, UK chairman of Euro Car Parts and LKQ board member, which owns the buyer, said, ‘This heralds a great move for us and we are delighted to welcome our passionate and knowledgeable team in Hella Ireland into the Euro Car Parts family.

‘It has been a busy two months for Euro Car parts, having opened in Carmarthen in June.’
