Motor factors and parts retailers across the country have taken delivery of six Angry Jester automotive tool vans.
The Volkswagen Crafters are kitted out with more than 160 tools and time-saving gadgets, including the full Angry Jester programme plus a range from The Parts Alliance’s tool supply partners.
It will bring the number of vans in the fleet to eight, building up to cover 82 of the 151 branches of the owned businesses that form The Parts Alliance motor factor network.
The first of the new vehicles will serve the South West, covering branches in Barnstaple, Chard, Exeter, Frome, Penryn, Plymouth, Taunton and Tiverton.
The rest of the fleet will be introduced in early 2016 to branches of SC Motor Factors, Car Parts & Accessories (CPA) and Allparts Automotive, all in London and the South East, and to those of CES UK, based in Cheshire, and Bromsgrove Motor Factors, in Worcestershire.
Wyn Jones, director with responsibility for tools, garage equipment and training within The Parts Alliance Group, said: “This year has seen a huge expansion in the Angry Jester brand. We’ve doubled the product lines, released a new catalogue and appointed our first Sales and Technical Development Manager.
“Now with six new tool vans being introduced and a network of 11 distributors across the UK, 2016 looks to be even more exciting.”
