Partbusters continues to give back with new training partnership

Date: Thursday 14 October 2021

UK automotive parts distributor, Partbusters, has partnered with the Department of Work and Pensions to launch a nationwide programme to support employment and growth within the UK, creating and providing several new positions for 16-24 year olds to take part in the UK’s first ever attempt to provide a requisite for Sales Advisors.

The distributor, along with its strategic partners, has combined each manufacturer’s individual training programmes to ‘academise’ Partbusters, providing the next generation of aftermarket professionals with access to the necessary tools, equipment and support to successfully service the supply chain.

With a clear focus to support the future of the industry, the strategic partnership will offer the Sales Advisors the opportunity to gain qualifications and training on automotive components, brands, systems, innovations and sales.

This will enable all of the company’s Sales Advisors to comfortably and responsibly advise potential customers on what part is best suited for their vehicle and budget.

Ricky Bassi, Director and Founder of Partbusters, said:

“We all have a strong focus on capturing sales, and at Partbusters, we look beyond current efficiencies and innovate further. By providing a minimum training requisite for our Sales Advisors, we reduce times taken to search and offer advice where possible, as well as reducing the margins for error and increasing customer satisfaction and engagement. When looking to streamline and be more efficient, it is imperative to look for innovations across all areas of the business and not just on IT systems.
“This is the first such initiative in the automotive industry and highlights how Partbusters is gaining ground in being recognised not only as innovators, but as pioneers holding the torch and driving the way forward throughout the sector.”

Partbusters is developing a reputation as a forward-thinking company that uses its experience and expertise to consistently support the industry and follows on from its recent donation to the Great Ormond Street Hospital, raising approximately £1,500 for the charity.

The figure included £600 from takings from the company’s coffee machine, which was then doubled by Ricky Bassi, director and founder of Partbusters, before other members of the Partbusters team rallied round to raise a fantastic £1500 for the charity.
