Too close for comfort? LKQ Euro Car Parts to close 27 Andrew Page branches

Published:  18 June, 2020

Following the announcement yesterday (Wednesday 17 June) of the full merger of Andrew Page into the newly branded LKQ Euro Car Parts chain, bringing the company’s 103-year story to a close, it has emerged that 27 Andrew Page branches will be closing their doors.

A spokesperson for LKQ Euro Car Parts said: “Our branch merger programme started last year, and it has already achieved some very strong results, driving improved customer service in the new, strengthened branches and where possible, the redeployment of colleagues to create stronger, combined teams.

“We have identified a further tranche of 27 Andrew Page branches that currently operate in close proximity to others. Most of these branches were temporarily closed as part of the measures we put in place during the coronavirus lockdown, and now we are not planning to reopen them.

“We have reached out and consulted with colleagues who are impacted by these mergers directly. As such, it would be inappropriate to comment publicly about these branches right now. We’ll be providing guidance and support to any colleagues affected by these changes.”

ECP bought most of the Andrew Page business in October 2016, after the company went into administration. A year later, the acquisition was approved by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), subject to the sale of nine depots.
