Business as usual for GSF Car Parts following Uni-Select acquisition

No material change to the day-to-day business of GSF Car Parts

National motor factor GSF Car Parts has confirmed its service is ‘business as usual’ following the announcement of parent company Uni-Select’s acquisition by LKQ Corporation on Monday 27 February.

The factor, which operates 180 branches across the UK with more than 2,500 staff, is unaffected by the acquisition and will be divested by LKQ.

President and COO Sukhbir Kapoor said: “There is no material change to the day-to-day business of GSF Car Parts because of Uni-Select’s announcement, so our network of 180 branches and our growing online retail service remains open for business as usual.

“Everyone at GSF Car Parts remains committed to driving value and delivering the excellent service to our customers on which the business has built its strong reputation.”

Kapoor and the management team at GSF are optimistic about the outcome of the divestment process and the potential it holds for the future of the distributor, which has a 60-year heritage in the industry.

“We are a strong and healthy business, optimistic about the eventual outcome of the divestment process, given the strength of GSF and the talent of our 2,500 people across the UK,” continued Kapoor.

“As one of the leading businesses in the automotive aftermarket, we are proud of our heritage, the service we offer today and the support we will continue to provide to thousands of customers across the UK in the future.”

It’s also business as usual for Servicesure, the leading garage programme operated by GSF with more than 600 members. Its EVsure arm, providing a range of useful benefits for IMI Techsafe Level 3-accredited garages, continues to gather pace as a insightful and value-driven add-on for qualified Servicesure members eager to adapt to the electrification of the UK car parc.
