Parts Alliance takes CAT crown

The Parts Alliance has been named CAT magazine’s Factor Chain of the Year.

The national trading group was represented by eight branches in its South West region which were shortlisted in recognition of a dramatic turnaround in fortunes under The Parts Alliance’s ownership. The branches were all previously part of the Unipart network.

‘The acquisition initially looked a good opportunity to improve our group coverage in the region,’ said Steve McCann, chief operating officer at The Parts Alliance. ‘But that was very much the start of an ongoing development process.

‘Since then we’ve continued investing time and resources, not least with the implementation of our class-leading IT system, and we’ve been able to transform the South West into a thriving region for the business.’
