NEW FACE OF AFTERMARKET PARTS ON THE PENINSULA

NAPA Auto Parts Mornington is now open at 8 Elite Way, Mornington

NAPA Auto Parts has made its way to the Mornington Peninsula to support trade and industrial automotive specialists.
Conveniently located in Mornington, the new branch is a prime location for any specialist working on the Peninsula, from Frankston and Hastings to Flinders and Sorrento.
NAPA Auto Parts Regional Manager, Gary Downs, is no stranger to the region, having spent years overseeing sales with R&E Auto Parts to many of the local automotive specialists and mechanics.
“There’s a huge opportunity for us to show locals what we can do for their business, from reliable brands to knowledgeable teams and a high level of customer service,” Gary said.
“As R&E Auto Parts is coming together with Ashdown-Ingram to become NAPA Auto Parts, I’m excited to be able apply a local business approach to customers but with the backing, expertise and support of a large international business.”
The new location is over 1,000 square metres and houses more than $1 million in stock including everything you need for braking, electrical, engine cooling, air conditioning, driveline, 4×4 fit outs and logbook servicing, while also providing the tools and workshop equipment to perform the task.
Branch Manager, Brad Atkinson, says the right stock is key to ensure customers are supported.
“Filling almost 1000 square metres with racking and smarter storage means the brands and depth of range our auto electrical, thermal and mechanical specialists want is right where they need it,” Brad said.
“We’re not a retail store, we are a business opening to support the local automotive specialists and mechanics, so we’ve got minimal space out front so we can fit more products in the warehouse.”
Like Gary, Brad has a long history with the Peninsula, having managed Ashdown-Ingram Sandown for the past 14 years and living locally. With this experience, and the experience of his five team members, the trade-focused team has the ‘Know How’ for any project.
NAPA Auto Parts states ‘NAPA Know How’ is a driving principle of the business, ensuring value through technology such as its industry leading online catalogue, NAPA PROLink, the right range and industry and product application knowledge.
“We carry a lot of stock, but we’ve made sure it’s the right parts that are required here,” Brad said.
“This means we’ve got a wider range of European parts compared to other locations as well as brakes and components from RDA Brakes.”
There are now three NAPA Auto Parts servicing Victoria – Mornington, Traralgon and Heidelberg West – with more planned to open in the coming year. The Mornington branch is the 25th NAPA Auto Parts location nationally.

NAPA Auto Parts Mornington is now open at
8 Elite Way, Mornington, and you can contact Brad and the team on 03 5978 2300.
