ASAP expands to Fareham
Monday, 15th January 2018
ASAP are one of the UK's largest suppliers of marine components and equipment. Since the acquisition of ASAP Supplies by Arleigh International in June 2017, and the resources available from the UK holding company Euro Car Parts, ASAP Supplies have some very ambitious expansion plans during 2018 and 2019.
With its base in Beccles Suffolk, ASAP Supplies are embarking on opening a series of UK branches, most of which will be based within ECP facilities. The first branch to open is ASAP South, operating from the ECP facility in Fareham, Hampshire.
Cheryll Gill, Head of Business Development for ASAP Supplies comments that 'We have always tried to pass on our award winning customer services to the marine industry, irrespective of location. Now we are able to offer a more local service, coupled with our Beccles operation, we really do feel that each and every one of our customers will benefit. Whether they are boaters, boat operators or boat builders involved in any aspect of our industry'.
Gill continues, 'Fareham is our first, but we have identified several other locations that we feel our customers will benefit from a more localised service. With the support of our parent companies, we look forward to passing on the proven positive attitude we have embraced to each and every one of these locations".
The ASAP Fareham facility will be offering a delivery and collection service and will officially open its doors for business on the 5th February 2018.
A.S.A.P. Supplies has appointed Tom Stott as their Fareham Branch Supervisor.
Cheryll Gill said 'Tom joins us at the start of an exciting new venture, the opening of our first branch within the Fareham operation of our sister company, Euro Car Parts. The customer focused approach and enthusiasm Tom demonstrates will be key to the branch's success.'
Tom comments 'Whilst working at Midland Chandlers, the opportunity to supervise the new A.S.A.P Supplies branch at Fareham came along, and it's too good to miss! It is challenge and I look forward to, and the chance to build my experience and knowledge within the marine industry is a welcome challenge. A.S.A.P Supplies have a fantastic reputation, and I am confident that I can deliver their customer expectations in this venture.'
