EAG strengthens relationship with DRiV

Date: Wednesday 16 December 2020

Excel Automotive Group (EAG) has revealed it will be taking on more product groups from DRiV, including the Champion and Payen portfolios, next month.

Building on its already successful distribution of DRiV’s Monroe products, EAG is introducing Champion braking, filtration and ignition components, and Payen engine gasket and sealing products, as well as specialist engine parts, such as bearings and pistons, to make an even stronger combined offering.

EAG provides full sales support, 24/7 online ordering through its website and TecCom. All products are listed on MAM AutoCat too. Next working day national delivery or same day local delivery is available to its customers allowing the company to offer a competitive aftermarket solution for a wide array of components.

EAG’s Managing Director, Adrian Lamb, commented: “EAG has become a significant distributor in the very short time since we purchased the company. We now have an incredibly impressive offering from DRiV, which complements what we already had with Monroe. We are delighted to be able to have as part of our product portfolio the Champion braking group of products, as well as Payen and the engine expertise range.”

DRiV’s Managing Director, Andrew Bevington, said: “EAG is an impressive organisation and it was a perfect fit for DRiV. It made sense to increase the offering through the company and Tony Bhogal, Adrian Lamb and the whole team have worked professionally through the coronavirus outbreak and have proved that they will be an invaluable partner.”

Chief Executive Officer at EAG, Tony Bhogal, added: “This partnership is a significant message to the automotive aftermarket and means that motor factors and wholesalers now have much more of a choice than before, and that EAG is setting new parameters and continuing to grow. Our next day delivery business has increased hugely and our same day delivery option is about to take another exciting turn in the new year.”
