Prasco tackles supply shortages with huge order

Prasco UK has reacted to the ever-escalating shortage of replacement parking sensors by stocking 50,000 units.

Sold within its own Prasco Premium extensive range of products, the parking sensors it offers encompasses 80% of volume and premium vehicle manufacturers including Ford, Vauxhall, Fiat, Peugeot, Renault, Toyota, VW, Volvo, BMW, Audi and Mercedes Benz.

Kelvyn Waugh, Prasco UK managing director, said: “We have noticed for a while how large numbers of our replacement parking sensors were being ordered. Towards the end of last year, the feedback we received from our customer base was that large numbers of repairers were struggling to source them, particularly those direct from vehicle manufacturers.

“Our procurement team have stepped up to the mark and with precise planning and through our close relationships with our suppliers, particularly in the Far East, we are in a great position where we have a huge stock available covering a majority of part numbers needed by repairers.

“As I sit here today, we have 50,000 units on site with more arriving with every shipment we receive. As far as we are concerned, while I am hearing there’s a shortage in replacement parking sensors which is holding up repairs, we have no shortage.”
