Kilen stockists win trade awards
Both ‘Member of the Year’ awards at the 2018 GROUPAUTO and UAN Tradeshow on the 5th of October were won by Kilen stockists. Autosupplies Chesterfield won the UAN award, and All Vehicle Parts earned the GROUPAUTO award.
Autosupplies Chesterfield have been a dedicated Kilen partner for over 10 years, and stock more than 2200 coil springs, covering the top 800 Kilen references and giving them 95% car parc coverage. This allows Autosupplies to offer availability direct from the shelf for almost every enquiry ensuring they remain one step ahead of any local competition.
All Vehicle Parts partnered with Kilen almost 4 years ago, and are progressively growing their Kilen profiles. Today they stock the top 400 references at their Market Harborough hub site, with their Leicester, Corby, and Oakham branches currently stocking more than 200+ references each. This allows All Vehicle Parts to offer customers excellent coverage with multiple deliveries each day.
Autosupplies managing director, David Clarke, said: “We’re delighted to have the won the award and all credit goes to the Autosupplies team for their hard work throughout the year. We have focused on continued business growth over the years to ensure we can meet the increased demand and ever-changing customer requirements and we will build on this in 2019 and beyond. Kilen, like many of our leading suppliers, is key to this growth, thanks to its product quality, availability and service, all of which help us promote the brand to independent garages."
All Vehicle Parts managing director, Craig Wilson, said: “Choosing to stock Kilen has been a great decision and has led to customers and staff enjoying excellent availability and confidence of fitment and quality.”
Pete Dancer, Kilen Springs Business Development Manager, said: “We are incredibly proud of our distribution partnerships with both Autosupplies Chesterfield and All Vehicle Parts – two very worthy winners of ‘Member of the Year’ awards. Both have been committed Kilen stockists for many years, and both continue to go from strength to strength. We wish them the very best of luck for the future, and look forward to supporting their continued growth.”
