The automotive aftermarket is the secondary market of the automotive industry, and is concerned with the manufacturing, remanufacturing, distribution, retailing, and installation of all vehicle parts, chemicals, tools, equipment and accessories for light and heavy vehicles, after the sale to the consumer of the new vehicle. The UK aftermarket is worth in the region of £11.2 billion per year. We service the vibrant and innovative independent aftermarket sector through a network of trade resellers.
