Distributor deal

Andrew Page strikes agreement with independent chain

Mark Roberts shakes hands with Andy Fox

PARTS distributor Andrew Page Ltd, has signed a 'preferred supplier' agreement with fledgling independent car-servicing franchise iAutoUK.

Coventry's iAutoUK, which in October launched the franchise side to its business at Birmingham's NEC, aims to have 25 franchises over the next five years.

The distributor has apparently been impressed by the garage's business model, so it has offered the chain deals on equipment, parts and technical training.

Andrew Page's managing director Mark Roberts said: "iAutoUK is demonstrating how business acumen as much as a technical knowledge is key to running a successful and profitable garage."

Andy Fox, director of iAutoUK, said: "We chose Andrew Page to be our preferred supplier because they are one of the UK's top distributors.

"Plus, we were particularly attracted by the range of ATA-accredited training and courses that Andrew Page provides for technicians. We are an independent car-servicing company - but we aim for our technicians to be among the best in the aftermarket industry."
