MJAllen Automotive’s Marathon Deal

DERBHYSHIRE, U.K. — MJAllen Automotive has secured a new major distribution agreement with leading aftermarket distributor Marathon Warehouse Distribution (MWD). 

Under the new agreement, Marathon will supply the full National Autoparts braking range of brake discs, pads, shoes and fitting kits on a same day supply to motor factors throughout the U.K.

Marathon’s national network of strategically located distribution centers provides motor factors and accessory shops across the U.K. with a frequent same day service to areas covering 85 percent of the U.K.’s total population, as well as a next-day parcel service to factors not currently within their expanding same-day service areas.

The National Autoparts braking range caters for more than 98 percent of the UK and EU vehicle parc. MJAllen Automotive is in complete control of its engineering, manufacturing and finishing processes – ensuring a quality product throughout.

“We have successfully worked with the Marathon team to ensure we are both strategically aligned to support motor factors up and down the U.K.,” MJAllen Automotive Managing Director, Les Kershaw said. “The business is already a leading provider of the National Autoparts clutch range and so we are delighted that motor factors now have same-day access to our expanded braking ranges.”

“We have been impressed with the continued investment from MJAllen Automotive in all areas of its business, from product quality to logistics, ensuring its standards are the very highest,” Colin Fisher, Sales & Marketing Director of Marathon Warehouse Distribution, added. “The expanded National Autoparts range now held across our regional distribution network provides factors with even more choice and availability for quality braking products. The National Autoparts brand is a great fit to our vast and rapidly growing product portfolio”.

Motor Factors are able to access Marathon’s extensive and rapidly growing range of products via its EMPOWER electronic trading portal, which hosts many value-added features for factors in addition to simply availability, pricing and ordering functionality.
