Guest Group has launched a new truck parts business - Partscomm - which will supply vehicle parts and consumables for all makes of commercial vehicles for same and next day delivery across central England.
The new company has been formed following an investment of more than £2 million and has a 23,500 sq ft warehouse in Hunckley, Leicestershire. This will be supplemented by 14 distribution centres and delivered by a fleet of dedicated vehicles.
Robert Spittle, managing director of the Guest Group, which includes Guest Truck and Van and Sherwood Truck and Van, said: “As a group we are continually monitoring opportunities in the marketplace, while also ensuring we are meeting the needs of our customer base and Partscomm is a natural evolution of our parts operations to do just that."
Partscomm has initially created a dozen jobs, with regional specialists and warehouse staff, and more are expected in line with growth over the next 12 months.
All 14 distribution centres and the central Hinckley depot have trade counters for walk-in customers and collections, while the firm promises same day delivery for stock items.
