GSF Car Parts closes in on 200 branches nationwide, with new openings in Crawley and Southgate

Date: Monday 01 July 2024

GSF Car Parts, the leading UK car parts distributor, has announced the opening of two new branches in Crawley and Southgate, following the introduction of their East Birmingham branch last week. The new branches, which take the total of GSF branches to almost 200 nationally, will create new jobs across both North London and West Sussex.  

The Crawley Regional Distribution Centre (RDC) covers 22,000 sq ft and houses over £1 million in inventory. As part of GSF’s ESG sustainability pledge, they have installed renewable heating in the state-of-the-art building, which also uses LED PIR lighting and a  ground source heat pump to maintain a low carbon footprint. It supports the network with six inter-branch vans that operate three times daily from Monday to Saturday, with plans to expand this fleet in the near future as it continues to build its customer base. 

The Southgate unit, equipped with three vans and four bikes, is positioned just four miles from Barnet and three miles from Finchley, expanding GSF's coverage in London. This location aims to enhance delivery speeds throughout the capital and will cater to the needs of the area's local garages, national accounts, and click-and-collect customers.

The parts distributor now boasts 3,000 team members nationwide. The news of these branch openings follows the announcement of a brand-new, 500,000 sq ft National Distribution Centre in Wolverhampton last month.

Steve Horne, CEO of GSF Car Parts commented on the expansion: "We’re pleased to welcome the Birmingham East, Crawley and Southgate branches to the GSF network.

“The opening of these new branches demonstrates our ongoing investment in ensuring that our customers have easy access to the car parts they need, no matter where they are in the country. Birmingham, Crawley, and Southgate are all key locations for us, and we are excited to bring our exceptional service and extensive product range to these areas."
