Industry expert Smythe joins Autoparts UK

Date: 08-May-2017

Autoparts UK has appointed industry expert Mike Smythe as its new Group Aftermarket Parts Buyer.

Smythe has more than 30 years’ experience in the automotive aftermarket having worked previously as a buyer at Solid Auto and Andrew Page.

In his new role at Autoparts UK, he will be responsible for working with the motor factor’s supply base, ensuring the 17-branch network of Autoparts UK, Midwest Motor Factors and Monmore Auto Parts continues to receive the best possible service and support. 

Craig McCracken, Autoparts UK Group Factor Manager, said: “I’m delighted to have Mike join the Autoparts UK team. His experience will prove vital in maximising our partnerships with a wide range of suppliers for the benefit of customers.”

Commenting on his new role Smythe added: “I have watched the growth of Autoparts UK in the past 20 years and I’m delighted to have an opportunity play a part in its future. The motor factor is not in the habit of switching suppliers readily but instead delivers growth to all companies through a long-term partnership. With our exciting plans, I look forward to working very closely with suppliers and leading industry brands to deliver accelerated growth.”
