ECP opens first Irish branch

Euro Car Parts (ECP) has opened its first Republic of Ireland branch in Dublin.

Open to trade customers only, the branch was originally branded Hella Ireland until it was acquired by ECP in August 2016.

The rebranded branch has invested heavily to grow the services on offer which includes tripling the size of the fleet to include 12 vans and two motorbikes along with 3PL Logistics supply chain management software; more than doubling warehouse space to 90,000sqft; recruiting 13 additional staff; and doubling its stock range to 65,000 product lines.

Martin Gray, CEO of ECP, said, ‘The business has been operating in Dublin since 1979 and has very experienced staff, some of whom have been working in the industry for over 30 years.

‘We’re retaining this expertise and adding Euro Car Parts’ full product range to deliver service that goes the extra mile and continues to support existing customers. We’re expanding what is on offer by investing in additional infrastructure and resources.’
