GLOBAL car-parts distributor and manufacturer Britpart recently opened its first depot in the Philippines, strengthening the country’s bilateral tie with the United Kingdom (UK), and at the same time, making it the regional hub for its operations.
This will allow Filipino Land Rover and Jaguar car owners to have access to its inventory of over 30,000 components and accessories worldwide worth $120 million (P6.02 billion).
With the Philippines as its first venture partner in South East Asia, such branded auto owners can now have the comfort of knowing their vehicle parts can be sourced quickly and cared for immediately at Britpart Showroom in Makati.
The company started out 35 years ago as a supplier of quality parts for Land Rover. Today, Britpart is a holistic one-stop shop offering vehicle parts and a wide range of accessories, from wheels to roof racks, imported from its 55-acre facility in Shropshire, UK.
It houses over 30,000 stock items from O-rings to oil seals, engines and exhaust systems delivered throughout the world at competitive prices. Soon, the trusted Britpart experience will be brought to Jaguar cars.
With the depot, owners will also be able to transform their Land Rover or Jaguar into a totally new vehicle from the ground up—as a road-performance beast, or an off-road adventurer, as Britpart will provide new accessories in the country that will further the potential of their vehicles, from exterior protection like light guards, bumpers, mud flaps and underside guards to lighting fixtures like fog lamps and for overhaul conversions, brakes, suspensions, engine parts, digital meters and air intakes.
UK Ambassador to the Philippines Asif Ahmad, who graced the depot’s opening ceremony, lauded the new venture of cooperation between the Philippines and the UK to beef up their business relationships.
