Factor expansion

New branches for ECP and Andrew Page

Published:  25 July, 2012

THE SEEMINGLY endless rise of the factor chains continues in July with new branches of both Andrew Page and Euro Car Parts.


"I am delighted to welcome the branch in Cowley to the growing Andrew Page network," said Andrew Page Managing Director Mark Roberts, "and we look forward to welcoming new trade customers from the Oxford area."

Meanwhile, ECP has rolled up the shutters on new outlets in Lincoln, Salisbury and Wirral, bringing the chain's count to 114. Speaking about the firm's strategy, chairman Sukhpal Singh said: "We use a computerised model to optimise the location of our branches.  It is based on location, geography, car parc and time [from local garages]"
