Fix Auto and Morelli agree new supplier deal

Fix Auto UK has named industry distributor Morelli as a ‘preferred supplier’.

Managing director Ian Pugh and Morelli’s national sales director Ruth Moring-Beale officially cemented the relationship with a contract that cements Morelli’s position as one of the network’s two preferred suppliers of all goods including paint and ancillaries, consumables and tools and equipment.

Meanwhile, a key element of the agreement ensures Morelli has direct access to its network of 118-fully branded repair centres through its regional business management team.

Pugh, said: “As our network continues to grow and mature it has become increasingly apparent that we need to further strengthen our ties with key industry suppliers if we are to maintain our high service levels. Being able to provide our franchise partners with access to the latest products, processes and sustainable profit options for the benefit of their businesses are at the very core of the services we provide and Morelli helps us to deliver that service.”

Moring-Beale said: “Morelli Group is delighted to be part of Fix Auto UK’s plans for the future and to cement the bonds we already have across the network. Our aim is to bring our value-added programmes to the franchise partners and show the value of our partnership with the profit-driven, sustainable products and innovative ideas that Morelli are known for.”
