AUTOFIRST Network has reached the 200-member milestone this week, less than 18 months since it was set up.
The association of independent garages was set up by Euro Car Parts and offers members a unique package of a national warranty programme, marketing campaign, access to an industry-leading web-based management system and technical partnerships providing training and support.
With the network growing at such a rate, there are plans under way to continue to improve brand awareness across the country with a number of marketing initiatives. Most recently there has been the addition of Autofirst Network advertising on the rear doors of Euro Car Parts’ trucks rear doors.
To support the growing membership, Autofirst Network has three sets of experts: specialist sales managers, a team of dedicated workshop equipment specialists and technical sales managers.
Euro Car Parts CEO Martin Gray said: ‘The Autofirst Network brings the best of two worlds together – the customer service, capability and local knowledge of the independent garage, backed by our support and infrastructure.
‘Now, garages across the UK are embracing the commercial benefits of a dynamic national network, developed to take on and beat any vehicle manufacturer-backed programme, while delivering complete peace of mind for the consumer.’
