Expanding auto parts business ramps up business with new base in Edinburgh

Allied Parts said the opening of the new Distrigo Relay site has resulted in the recruitment of additional staff. The company has taken up a unit in the Turnhouse Court industrial estate in Newbridge.

Parts Department Manager Chris McKay said: “The uptick in activity is driven by the parts distribution model for automotive manufacturers Stellantis Peugeot, Citroen, Vauxhall, Fiat, Jeep and Alfa Romeo.

“Within the Distrigo parts model, there are 22 parts centers in the UK which are set up to sell parts to the motor trade. The success of Allied Parts in Aberdeen and the increased demand from customers in Edinburgh have given us enabled a new site to be opened to meet the needs of the automotive trade in Edinburgh.

Anne Maclaren, Regional Property Manager at Whittle Jones Scotland, managing agent acting on behalf of site owner Northern Trust Company, said: “The expansion of Allied Parts and their creation of jobs at this new Distrigo Relay site is a Fantastic addition to the development and shows the importance of Northern Trust’s investment in creating high quality commercial space for the area.

Turnhouse Court is located in the heart of Newbridge, close to the M9 and M8 interchanges. There are also plans for a second phase of development incorporating four larger units.

Lewis Pentland, of joint letting agent Colliers, added: “We have been very pleased with the use of the units at Turnhouse Court since their completion a few months ago, with 50% of the estate now let.”
