July 2017 – The motor oil and additive specialist LIQUI MOLY is expanding its distribution in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Beginning immediately its products will also be marketed by the Rapid Group. “With the Rapid Group we have found a strong partner”, said Ibrahim Memis, who is responsible for the LIQUI MOLY business in both countries. “This will make it even easier to find our oils and additives.”
The Rapid Group is an association of twelve independent automobile dealerships: Carspares, Car Spares Factors, EK Brakes, General Traffic, NPA Motor Factors, Parkers, Partservice, Pat Williams, SDL Minorfern, SES Autoparts, TMS and Toppart. Together they have 123 branches in England, Scotland and the Republic of Ireland. The Rapid Group is a member of the international Temot Purchasing Association, which has close ties to LIQUI MOLY. What could be more obvious than to investigate the advantages of a partnership?
Both sides will profit from this cooperation, emphasised Ibrahim Memis: “No one has a wider range of automotive chemical products than LIQUI MOLY. And hardly anyone has a more extensive sales network than the Rapid Group.” Up to now LIQUI MOLY was sold particularly by the wholesaler Andrew Page. “The Rapid Group is an important expansion, and will provide even better availability for our products”, continued Ibrahim Memis
LIQUI MOLY is a full-range retailer in the area of automotive chemicals. In addition to motor oils, the company also produces additives, service products, car care products and much more. All totalled, the range includes more than 4000 automotive chemical products. Such a wide line of products is unique in the branch. This makes it possible to buy matching products from one company, simplifying purchasing and use of the products.
