Stellantis, the world's fourth-largest automotive manufacturer, announced the entry of Eurorepar into the South African automotive spare parts industry. Renowned for its comprehensive range of spare parts applicable to all vehicle makes, Eurorepar is set to create significant ripples in the South African market.
The launch of Eurorepar comes with the backing of Stellantis. From a network that stretches across 40 countries, Eurorepar is synonymous with diversity, offering an impressive array of more than 15 000 part numbers. The leap into the South African market is another demonstration of Stellantis’s global vision of connecting vehicles across continents, the company says in a statement.
Stellantis remains committed to providing high-quality automotive parts, and as a testament to our trust in Eurorepar's quality, we are providing a standard two-year warranty on all parts. This warranty, backed by Stellantis, will extend another layer of trust and assurance to all our customers in South Africa.
To engage independent parts wholesalers and independent car repairers, understanding their unique needs, and gearing our operations for top-tier service delivery, Eurorepar was launched at the Automechanika Trade Show, which took place at the Johannesburg Expo Centre at Nasrec from the 5th to the 7th of September.
"Our vision is crystal clear – to grow Eurorepar in South Africa into the largest supplier of automotive spare parts for all vehicle makes," says Jonathan Snow, the Project Lead for the development of the South African business. With their respective wealth of knowledge and passion for the industry, Jonathan Snow and the Stellantis team are well-equipped to bring this vision to fruition.
