Major network expansion confirmed for Ireland

PR Reilly has confirmed it will open six new branches over the next year and will rebrand as LKQ Euro Car Parts as it aligns with the LKQ Group across the UK and Ireland.

New hubs will open in locations including Limerick and Waterford, with additional branches in Tralee and Navan.

A further two branches will open in Dublin in 2022, one of which will become a dedicated distribution hub to enable faster and more efficient logistics operations across the city. Meanwhile, the existing Galway branch will be extended to create a new hub to service the west of Ireland.

Bob Wiffen, country director at LKQ Euro Car Parts in the Republic of Ireland, said: “After another successful year of growth in a challenging Covid environment, we’re ready to press ahead with our ambitious expansion plans in the Republic of Ireland – alongside the rebrand to LKQ Euro Car Parts – which will bring tangible benefits to our customers.

“Our growing network will deliver significantly reduced fulfilment times, increased parts availability and the introduction of new ranges, and streamlined processes to enable seamless service. And parts supply is just part of the story; we also offer business support, training, garage equipment, work referrals and more.

“At a time when independent garages face some significant and transformational challenges, we are going to be better-equipped than ever to help them succeed, and to be a true partner to their businesses now and in the future.”
