Unipart Group reaffirms stance on Car Care Centres

Scheme to continue under Unipart leadership

Published:  20 August, 2014

The Unipart Group has announced it has acquired all legal interest and rights in the Unipart Car Care Centre (UCCC) name, trademark and intellectual property.

The group, which had a shareholding in Unipart Automotive but with no control on the business, will continue to run and develop the UCCC program and has thanked existing members for their patience following 'a period of uncertainty and inconvenience'. New member benefits are being worked on, and the group has highlighted that despite the Unipart Automotive troubles, the UCCC website has remained active with customers able to locate their nearest garage.

Continuity of supply of Unipart products will be maintained by members of The Parts Alliance and Express Factors. Speaking to Aftermarket, Simon Mullin, Sales & Marketing Director at Andrew Page says: ""We have agreed to help the Unipart Car Care Centres and we are discussing the ways we can enhance the program, including the possibility of dovetailing in our training programs to the system, adding data to the KIS system and seeing what else we can do together. We want to work together to encourage new members into the scheme. We hope we can inject a little more market awareness and knowledge into the business and continue to build it under the Unipart name."

Since the collapse of Unipart Automotive, the Unipart Group has continued to stress that its business remains unaffected. The company is still continuing its parts development, with products being distributed by Andrew Page, along with continuing relationships with independent garages under its scheme.
