Seven has never looked so good! After our sixth branch opened its doors in Townsville, the NAPA blue and yellow has found its way to Mackay, Queensland.
Formerly known as Ashdown-Ingram, the NAPA Auto Parts Mackay is seen as a destination for a wide variety of parts for Mackay’s auto specialists. Remaining in the same location of 52 Central Park Drive, Paget, the now blue building represents the beginning of an extended range for new and existing customers.
GPC Asia Pacific is investing significantly to enhance the product offer and service to our trade customers; the improved storage area will house a significantly expanded range of products and brands, with the in-branch range increasing by around 9,000 products. This represents an inventory investment of over $450,000, meaning NAPA Auto Parts is serious about providing the parts you need, more often, to complete your jobs in a more convenient location. Branch Manager, Wayne Gilroy, is very excited to become a part of the NAPA Auto Parts family. “The stock holding is mammoth. I’m amazed by the amount of Australian recognized brands we are able to keep in house and over the course of the coming year we will continue to expand our range with new brands and products from NAPA Auto Parts.”
With more branches expected to pop up in most corners of the country this year, it’s an exciting time to be an automotive specialists. The plan is to have over 125 locations across Australia and New Zealand in the coming years with a rigorous roll out schedule underway.
The Mackay store, located at 52 Central Park Drive, Paget, is a rebranded Ashdown-Ingram store which has been utilised by local auotmotive and mining specialists in the region. The convenient location is known to local automotive specialists as a destination for a wide variety of parts. Importantly, as with all NAPA Auto Parts locations, whilst the outside looks different, inside is very familiar, with the same people you know and trust working behind the counter.
In most cases it’ll be very much business as usual:
- The same friendly faces you’ve always known, servicing the local community
- The quality service you’ve come to expect
The biggest differences are that customers will now have a wider range of parts to choose from and be able to use the NAPA PROLink online system, an extension of Ashdown-Ingram’s Quantum Pro. The comprehensive system is an industry award winning online ordering platform and auto-electrical catalogue with a search function powered by a national vehicle registration database.
With a strong range currently available, over the course of the coming year the NAPA Auto Parts range will continue to expand with new brands and products from world renowned brand leaders including auto electrical, accessories, braking, under-bonnet and under-car products. This means greater access to trusted brands through increased stock levels in locations convenient to you.
For the excellent customer experience you’ve come to expect from Ashdown-Ingram, as well as the world’s most trusted brands, head to our new NAPA Auto Parts Branch at 52 Central Park Drive, Paget, or give the team a call on 07 4952 3172.
