International automotive parts supplier OnlyDrive has announced that it will open its newest branch in New Zealand’s capital city, Wellington.
The move marks a significant step for the European firm as it continues to grow its international footprint and aims to make quality auto parts more accessible to customers across the globe.
Founded in 2010, OnlyDrive has steadily risen to prominence within the automotive industry, recognized for its commitment to high-quality products and exceptional customer service. The company prides itself on sourcing the best auto parts from reputable manufacturers and providing solutions for both everyday car enthusiasts and professional mechanics alike.
Its decision to open a branch in New Zealand was driven by the country’s robust automotive market and the demand for reliable and high-quality auto parts, in addition to Kiwi’s obsession with cars.
“Our research indicated a gap in the New Zealand market for a supplier that could provide a wide range of high-quality auto parts at competitive prices,” says Alex Turner, Chief Executive Officer at OnlyDrive.
“We saw this as an opportunity to serve and meet the needs of Kiwi car enthusiasts and professionals.”
OnlyDrive states that its arrival in Wellington is expected to bring “significant benefits” to the local economy by creating new jobs and partnerships with other local businesses and suppliers.
The company’s local branch will also implement eco-friendly initiatives, like recycling used parts and optimising supply chains to minimise its carbon footprint.
Once the Wellington store is up and running, New Zealanders can expect more OnlyDrive stores to pop up around the country in places like Auckland, Christchurch, and Dunedin in the coming years.
