LKQ Euro Car Parts, alongside seven other leading suppliers to the aftermarket, has announced the launch of a unique new garage concept to help the industry’s professionals navigate the ever-changing automotive landscape and deliver a best-in-class service.

Developed in conjunction with MPM Oil, Pagid, Schaeffler, Shell, Valeo, Varta, and ZF Aftermarket, 1TEC Auto Hub aims to be a market leading concept network that gives independent workshops all the tools, training, and business support they need to grow.

Membership provides garages with numerous benefits, including the latest technical and diagnostic data to facilitate a top-quality first-time fix every time, marketing support and materials, business support to help unlock further revenue streams, training including access to LKQ Euro Car Parts’ award-winning LKQ Academy, and an exclusive rewards platform.

Kevan Wooden, chief commercial officer, LKQ Euro Car Parts said: “Collaboration is key in these times of rapid technological and regulatory change in our sector, while access to the latest tools, training and technical data is vital to garages working on modern vehicles.

“This is why, through 1TEC Auto Hub, we’re seeking to create a network that supports a professional community of independent workshops and empowers them to futureproof their businesses. 

“1TEC Auto Hub has secured impressive backing from some of our industry’s leading brands. Each brings with them unique benefits for the network, which will be key as together we work with our 1TEC Auto Hub garages and help them reach their full potential.”

Every partner offers a unique set of member benefits.  1TEC Auto Hub members are required to meet a set of criteria to ensure consistently high standards of service.

Kevan Wooden continued: “In a market where poor service can have such tangible implications, we recognise the importance of developing trust with customers. Our ambition is to develop 1TEC Auto Hub into a brand that consumers actively seek out for best-in-class customer service and efficient, effective service maintenance and repair work.”
