A Brief introduction to PartsPoint
In recent years, the automotive aftermarket in the Netherlands has seen a number of sweeping changes: a general economic downturn, a decreased demand for spare parts and tools, longer service intervals in more affordable vehicles and fierce competition from OEM channels. One possible solution to mitigate the effects of these developments is increased economies of scale, which can be seen in the accelerated consolidation of independent wholesalers, through forward integration by parties such as Sator (LKQ) and PartsPoint Group. Opportunity presented itself as two former AD Benelux wholesalers, Staadegaard and Technische Centrale, were acquired by PartsPoint. During the resulting negotiations between AD Benelux and PartsPoint it was decided that an expansion of the agreement into the sale of a majority stake in the AD Benelux organization itself could prove beneficial for both parties.
Last October, RAHAT YOL, a leading warehouse distributor in Turkmenistan joined AD Central Asia.
Turkmenistan is a market of 5,3 million inhabitants and a car park of 650.000 vehicles.
