AfriPart claims its stake as South Africa’s first Automotive Aftermarket Distributor, 100% independantly owned and operated via its empowered employee trust which was born out of an enterprise development initiative. AfriPart Managing Director, Andrew Sommerville says “AfriPart (Pty) Ltd effectively has 100% of the shareholding in the AfriPart Employee Trust with the vision of securing a significant national footprint within the automotive aftermarket distribution sector. The use of unique technology will allow AfriPart to rapidly expand via elevated service and delivery mechanisms that will ultimately revolutionise the market.

AfriPart will distribute into the automotive retail, workshop and fitment segments brands such as Textar, Echlin, Gabriel Suspension & Steering, Gabriel Shocks, Acsa Mag auto electrical components, SKF bearings, VDO and Permatex. Andrew Sommerville comments that there is an opportunity within the market with these sought-after brands that the current wholesale distribution channels are not effectively carrying or distributing. The opportunity lies with the strength of the brands coupled with propriety technology that will allow efficient cost effective distribution and delivery. AfriPart will ultimately have a national foot print with rapid expansion into all major centres and selected regional outlying areas.
