GSF Car Parts Continues Expansion with New Branch Openings in East Manchester and Southeast London

Date: Tuesday 09 July 2024

The Openshaw branch, located in East Manchester, spans 4,000 square feet. It achieved a record-breaking opening day for sales, setting a new benchmark for the network. This new branch significantly enhances GSF’s reach across East Manchester, dramatically reducing delivery times. The branch currently operates with four delivery vans, with an additional van on the way due to the opening day's success, along with two bikes for quick deliveries.

The new Crayford branch, spanning nearly 9,000 square feet, enhances access to southeast London. Surrounding branches often face high traffic congestion, resulting in longer delivery times. This new location allows deliveries to be completed in under half an hour, offering greater convenience for both trade customers and the public utilising GSF’s Click and Collect service. The branch is equipped with four vans and four bikes to ensure efficient parts movement and an electric charging point is to be installed soon.

This announcement comes during a rapid expansion phase for the parts distributor, which now operates more than 190 branches and employs 3,000 team members across the country.

Steve Horne, CEO of GSF Car Parts commented on the expansion: “We’re pleased to welcome these new branches to the GSF network.

“Improving delivery times and providing greater parts availability for our customers is essential, and these locations extend our reach across two of the UK’s major cities. With thriving independent garage communities in both the capital and Greater Manchester, these new branches reflect our continued commitment to expanding and improving our network.

“These are key, strategic areas that allow us to deliver exceptional service and a wider product range to our customers across these regions.”
