DAF dealer group Ford & Slater has opened a new flagship TRP (Truck Related Parts) parts store on the site of DAF service agent FW Abbott, based at Kettering Business Park.
TRP caters for all makes of trucks and trailers, and is available across the DAF dealer network as well as an increasing number of new TRP stores.
The site officially opened on October 1 and the new TRP site received an initial £130,000 TRP parts stock investment, which is set to increase with business, and has around 2,000 lines in its 1,000sq ft facility.
Richard Burton, managing director of FW Abbott, said: “I’d like to thank Ford & Slater for their support and assistance in getting this project off the ground. I am extremely pleased with the results and look forward to seeing its benefits to our business. The support and vision of Ford & Slater has been crucial in making this a reality and we appreciate their input.”
With its new TRP outlet, Ford & Slater will be able to develop its parts offering in the area to bring existing and potential customers an improved van delivery service together with a readily accessible competitively priced parts range, helping to keep their vehicle downtime to a minimum.
In addition to the opening of the new TRP Kettering store, there is also a new TRP catalogue (both online and in print), a new DAF Web shop to buy TRP and DAF parts and the TRP website has been updated too for improved functionality and with all 75,000 lines.
