04 Oct JUSTOYOTA & JUSTSERVICE JOIN ACM PARTS

ACM Parts today announced a major step to grow its national business with the acquisition of Justoyota and JustService in Moorabbin, Victoria.

Established in 1978, the Justoyota business, which includes ALL4WD Spares and Commercials, is one of the biggest recyclers of 4WD parts and Toyota parts in Victoria. The Chesterville Rd business has a team of 23 experienced staff who will all come across into the ACM Parts team.

ACM Parts CEO Mike Kirkman said the acquisition was strategically important and would deliver huge benefits locally, and throughout the eastern seaboard.

“This important acquisition will allow ACM Parts to complete its integrated salvage and new part operations across the east coast of Australia, building its customer base in Victoria and immediately generating new revenues and profit,” Mr Kirkman said.

“In Victoria, ACM Parts will work with Justoyota and JustService to build on the new parts business at Sunshine and the DIY Auto salvage self service at Broadmeadows, developing a broader and positive customer proposition for the state.

“This is great news for our national growth strategy and we look forward to working with Justoyota and JustService to grow and optimise our product and service offer.”

Justoyota director Simon Hemingway said he was looking forward to joining the national ACM Parts family.

“We really wanted to focus on growing our company sustainably so joining the well-established ACM Parts network was the best next step for us,” Mr Hemingway said.

“I’m really excited about this next phase of our business and what Justoyota and ACM Parts will be able to achieve together in supplying top quality recycled parts to the automotive market.”

The acquisition comes on the heels of ACM Parts’ move into much larger premises in Smeaton Grange, NSW, which tripled its warehouse capacity in that state.

ACM Parts has also built its fleet of trucks and invested in route optimisation technology to ensure faster delivery to repairers along the east coast.

“We are working hard to innovate in the automotive market and create an unbeatable value proposition for repairers,” Mr Kirkman said.

“Earlier this year we were thrilled to be recognised as an ABA100 winner in the Australian Business Awards 2016 for two categories, Business Innovation and Service Innovation. This is an exciting time for ACM Parts.”
