25 May ACM PARTS LAUNCHES BIGGER PREMISES IN NSW
Australian automotive parts supplier ACM Parts has taken the next step in its expansion plans by moving its NSW operations to a huge warehouse complex at Smeaton Grange.
The new site will have more than triple the storage capacity of the previous facility in Huntingwood.
ACM Parts CEO Mike Kirkman said the move was an important milestone for the NSW business, which has increased the size of its workforce by 50% in the past 12 months.
“This move signals a new phase in ACM Parts’ development in NSW, as well as nationally,” Mr Kirkman said.
“The warehouse capacity at Smeaton Grange means we can deliver on our promise to be a faster, more cost effective and more comprehensive supplier to Australia’s collision and repair industry.
“We needed a much bigger footprint to be able to handle the volume of quality-checked recycled parts, ACM Certified Parts and OEM parts required by today’s industry.”
Customers can look forward to faster deliveries and a surge in stock levels as the new facility reaches capacity.
Double the size of the Huntingwood warehouse at 10,000 square metres, the complex also boasts triple the storage capacity, which will take ACM Parts inventory from 35,000 to 150,000 parts.
The move to Smeaton Grange complements ACM Parts’ investment in new route optimisation technology to cut down on delivery times, and the expansion of its delivery fleet to 23 vehicles.
As well as faster delivery times, customers can expect ready access to a larger variety and quantity of recycled parts, with the number of cars pulled apart each week also expected to double to 100 after the move.
The launch event attracted scores of local repairers and assessors and featured a presentation from international guest Bob Frayer, Director of Automotive and Aftermarket Certification Program for NSF International, which certified ACM Certified Parts.
