With the superb MG6 sports fastback now in the showrooms and attracting a lot of interest, MG Motor UK Limited has announced its chosen partner for its new aftermarket parts business.
Multipart Solutions, the Lancashire based logistics specialist, has been awarded the contract following a comprehensive tendering process set out by MG parent company, Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC).
Jack Safiruddin, MG’s Aftersales and Parts Business Manager, said: “Having an efficient and supportive parts supply channel is vital to the long-term success of the MG brand and our business. I am delighted that Multipart will be helping us to build the very best service to our dealers and their customers.”
Multipart has worked in partnership with MG Motor to set up a parts operation within the MG Birmingham site and stocks are in place to support the UK launch. Management of the warehouse and inventory control is being carried out by Multipart but the parts stock, initially covering around 2,000 parts numbers, is owned by MG.
Parts are picked and packed by the locally based staff who also arrange overnight delivery to the MG dealer network across the UK using proven transport providers selected by MG. The dealer network will increase substantially over the coming months.
Under the contract Multipart will also provide its considerable expertise in parts demand forecasting to determine optimum stock levels. Based on systems developed by its large in-house IT team, the accuracy with which Multipart is able to carry out this activity will both ensure that high levels of availability are maintained and help MG to keep its working capital down.
Chris Williams, Director – Automotive/Industrial, at Multipart said: “We are delighted to have won this business in the face of some tough competition from across the European logistics industry. Our proven track record in providing industry-leading levels of parts support for a growing range of volume vehicle makers has clearly impressed MG.
“The revival of the MG brand under the ownership of China’s largest car maker, SAIC, is a very positive step forward for the UK motor industry. MG has an exciting future with products such as the MG6 and, MG3 and MG5 Concept, is clearly capturing the imagination of the motoring public. We look forward to growing the aftermarket parts business in line with increased sales of the superb new MG6 model.”
