Autoparts UK has promoted Steven McKenzie to Assistant Group Buyer, highlighting its commitment to ongoing personnel development and encouraging employee growth from within its current workforce. ,

An enthusiastic McKenzie said: &ldquo,I&rsquo,m really excited to take this next step with Autoparts UK. I have massive ambition and want to help grow the parts business. I aim to be a vital part of this team and hope that my experience can bring fresh ideas to the table and help all departments moving forward.&rdquo,
