Shorade UK has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with LKQ Coatings.
The agreement covers all existing sites – Shorade Cannock, Finesse Dorking, Finesse Redhill – and all of the bodyshop’s planned future sites.
Leon Coupland, managing director, Shorade UK, said: “After discussions with the LKQ team we knew that they were the right choice for our business. Shorade UK focuses on delivering high-quality and efficient manufacturer-approved repairs to our customers, and we are confident that the LKQ Coatings team can support us to deliver this now, and in the future. The Directors and our wider teams are looking forward to working closely with the LKQ Coatings team going forwards.”
Andy Southby, managing director, LKQ Collision and Coatings, said: “Shorade’s ethos of providing a first-rate and personalised service tailored to each customer’s specific needs closely matches our own, and we are proud to be launching this partnership across all of their sites. We look forward to working and growing together to further enhance the team’s vehicle repair and customisation offering from start to finish.”
Shorade, which is expected to announce new sites in the coming months, has said the distribution changeover will not impact business operations or repair delivery dates.
