Key appointments for GSF Car Parts

Vehicle parts supplier GSF Car Parts has appointed Sukhpal Ahluwalia as executive chairman and Steve Horne as chief executive officer.

GSF Car Parts operates 180 branches across the UK and Ireland, supplying independent garages, national chains and retail customers with high quality parts, specialist training, tools and equipment.

Following these leadership changes, the company plans to add a significant number of new branches, strengthen its e-commerce offering, and rejuvenate its delivery fleet. It will also extend its range of products for electric vehicles and invest in new technology to reduce its own emissions and energy footprint.

Ahluwalia said: “This is a hugely exciting time for GSF Car Parts, and I look forward to working with all of our valued team members, customers, and global suppliers as we start on this new journey together. I have a huge respect for the GSF team, including the business’ hard-working branch team members and head office colleagues. Relationships have always been at the centre of GSF’s success, and that’s something that we’re going to double down on.”

Horne said: “We will turn the business into a fast-growth, sales-focused company with our customers, suppliers, and team members at its heart. This growth plan will deliver opportunities across the industry: new sales channels for our valued global suppliers, added convenience for our important customers, and new roles for our knowledgeable team members.”
