European merger on parts and tyres



Two of Europe’s biggest commercial vehicle parts and tyre companies are joining forces.

Commercial vehicle parts supplier Europart and tyre dealership First Stop are joining forces to offer their respective customer bases access to the other's products and services.

The arrangement will be piloted in Germany, before being rolled out to the European network of both organisations.

When fully implemented, the agreement will give First Stop dealerships – many of which also offer commercial vehicle repairs, as well as tyre services – the ability to access Europart's spare parts ordering system, enabling them to offer more than 70,000 spares and workshop equipment items.
