Dealer Ford and Slater has opened a dedicated parts store which has an extensive stock of TRP all makes parts at the site of Daf service agent FW Abbott.
The two companies have a long-standing relationship and worked over a four month period to modify the facility at Kettering Business Park.
Improvements include better access to the site, a new mezzanine floor and driver waiting area.
Ford and Slater said the new outlet will enable it to develop its parts offering in the area and offer potential customers an improved van delivery service.
The store has an initial £130,000 worth of parts.
Tim Strevens, Joint MD at Ford and Slater said: “I’m pleased with the project not only for Ford and Slater and FW Abbott but also for the benefits that this will bring for new and existing customers.”
- Ford and Slater has been shortlisted in the Franchised Dealer of the Year category at the first Commercial Motor Dealer Awards to be held on 23 November at Heythrop Park, Oxfordshire. Table bookings are available now at commercialmotor.com/dealerawards
