CAS stocked and loaded in post-Brexit market

It’s no secret that many Irish consumers and business owners are feeling the pinch of Brexit. The once smooth movement of goods between EU countries and the UK has suddenly slowed in a tax and paperwork quagmire that’s left all parts of the supply chain a bit bamboozled.

Since the 2016 referendum that put in motion the UK’s exit from the EU, Harris Group have been busy building a robust supply chain to keep shelves stocked with all kinds of necessary parts. Our concentrated effort to strengthen relationships with partners has provided a deep network throughout Europe for sourcing quality parts.

“We are continuously expanding our range to look after automotive and industrial needs during this time and are delighted to announce several exciting new brand additions on our shelves,” said Michael Meenan, Group Parts Manager, who oversees Commercial and Auto Spares (CAS), the All Makes Parts Programme of Harris Group.

Harris Group have been appointed as distributor for Hengst Filtration, who offer more than 3,000 filter products for automobiles and commercial vehicles of all manufacturers worldwide.

Specialists with more than 60 years of experience in replacement and spare parts for industrial vehicles, trucks and vans, Casals will supply top-quality fuel tanks. With them, we will offer the biggest range of fuel tanks in Ireland.

Unitruck, who has become synonymous with quality rearview mirrors and lighting across Europe and the UK for buses and trucks, will give us access to the largest range of aftermarket mirrors.

“We’ve been Brexit ready. Our team invested a lot of time and money into the planning and preparation for this new trade era to make sure we have parts for customers when they need them. We have more than 50,000 different types of parts on shelves with the ability to deliver anywhere in Ireland within 24 hours,” continues Michael.

Harris Group started the year on pace with a large delivery of fuel tanks adding to an inventory chock-full of in-demand parts for all types of HGVs, LCV, buses and coaches. The addition of the new brands means that we can continue to supply top-quality parts and meet the demand across a range of sectors needing to provide transport.

Plus, our advanced stock management system ensures a 24 hour delivery to the extensive dealer network in Ireland and the UK.

“Our growth of the all-makes programme demonstrates our commitment to Ireland, to provide quality products with no delivery wait time–all backed by our exceptional customer service,” said John McEvoy, Chief Operating Officer for Harris Group.
