Leading automotive distributor LKQ Euro Car Parts increases support for Irish aftermarket with Waterford branch expansion

Date: Thursday 30 June 2022

LKQ Euro Car Parts, the leading UK and Republic of Ireland automotive parts distributor, has moved its existing Waterford branch to a larger site in order to expand its offering to the Irish aftermarket.

The Waterford branch has moved to Lacken Road Business Park, and the new site includes an in-house training centre offering a range of LKQ Academy courses – covering areas from diagnostics and engine management to marketing – for Ireland-based technicians.

The branch officially opened with a customer event on 4th June, featuring tours of the site, offers across a range of in-store products and training courses, and a prize draw.

As well as having a paint mixing facility onsite, the new branch will continue to give both drivers and garages across the city and surrounding areas local, convenient access to LKQ Euro Car Parts’ 160,000-strong range of car, light commercial vehicle and specialty parts.

From replacement wiper blades, headlamp bulbs, collision and coatings products to specialist garage equipment for working on electric vehicles and hybrids, the range is designed to help Irish aftermarket businesses to future-proof their operations and cater for the latest, cleanest vehicles on the road.

LKQ Euro Car Parts stocks household names like Bosch, Duracell and Continental, in addition to having its own line of brands to ensure drivers can make the right choice for their specific vehicle needs and budget.

The new Waterford branch is LKQ Euro Car Parts’ second in the city and 25th in the Republic of Ireland, with several more openings around the country planned for later in 2022.

Stephen Douthart, Divisional Director at LKQ Euro Car Parts, said:

“It’s great to be in Waterford and we’re excited to be able to provide an enhanced service to our retail and trade customers in the area.
“Whether drivers are doing minor vehicle repairs or preparing for a long journey, we have a team of 20 industry experts in-store ready to help them find exactly what they need – and our new branch offers a fantastic click-and-collect service along with amazing weekly offers.
“We’re here for local independent garages, too. They provide a fantastic, highly competitive service for all types of vehicles, and we want to help them keep meeting and exceeding their customers’ expectations both now and in the future.”
