Ferodo® Earns Preferred Supply Status with A1 Motor Stores


Date: 20-Jul-2017

Federal-Mogul Motorparts, a division of Federal-Mogul LLC, today announced that its braking specialist brand Ferodo® will have products available via the A1 Motor Stores network across the UK. The announcement follows the confirmation of Federal-Mogul Motorparts as a Tier 1-approved supplier with preferred status after A1 Motor Stores’ recent Brake Friction tender process. 

“We are delighted to announce the start of this new partnership with A1 Motor Stores and look forward to seeing it grow,” explained Andrew Bevington, Managing Director, Aftermarket, Federal-Mogul Motorparts EMEA. “Following the tender process, we were successful in reaching an agreement that will further extend the distribution of the Ferodo brand in the UK. This will enable us to supply a greater number of factors and technicians with high quality braking products.”

A1 Motor Stores originally started as a marketing group in 1983 but has now become a fully-fledged buying and distribution group encompassing independent retailers and motor factors alike.

“We are very pleased to be able to offer our customers the Ferodo brand,” explained Simon Salloway, Head of A1 Operations. “It is widely recognised for its high quality, OE-specification products and excellent customer support. In particular, we were impressed that Ferodo is fitted to 8 of the top 10 selling cars in Europe. Ferodo has been developing friction products and braking solutions for over a hundred years, and our customers will find value in the reassurance that such experience brings.” 

Initially, Ferodo products will be stocked predominantly in A1 Motor Stores’ Motor Factor network, with distribution beginning on July 1st, 2017. Ferodo is one of Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ many brands, each of which provides a broad range of high quality components that offer significant coverage of the vehicle parc.
