Genuine parts still available for MG Rover cars
Four years after the collapse of MG Rover, XPart continues to provide affordable, specialist servicing and parts for the UK’s one million MG Rover cars
MG Rover owners still have access to genuine parts and affordable, specialist servicing as XPart continues to ensure the ongoing supply of MG Rover parts four years after the closure of the MG Rover factory. By working closely with new owners of the MG Rover brand, the Nanjing Automobile Corporation (NAC), XPart has achieved a smooth supply of parts manufactured from the original MG Rover tooling at the NAC MG factory in Nanjing, China, and has also maintained supply agreements with original MG Rover parts suppliers, allowing its nationwide network of MG Rover wholesalers and AutoService centres to offer high quality parts and servicing to the UK’s one million MG Rover owners.
“Despite the initial challenges posed by the demise of MG Rover and the removal of MG Rover tooling to China, XPart has helped to ensure that MG Rover parts availability remains high by working on key supply initiatives with NAC,” explains Neil Hipkiss, Materials Director, XPart. “In the four years since the original factory closure, we have built up a nationwide network of over 250 MG Rover specialists with extensive experience of servicing MG Rover cars, who can offer owners a high quality, affordable service option together with a rapid turnaround on replacement parts.”
XPart provides comprehensive support to owners by offering its AutoService centre network the technical support that an authorised repairer would expect from a manufacturer. It has also invested substantially in maintaining the ongoing supply of genuine MG Rover parts, holding around £20m of MG Rover stock. In July 2008, the company was selected by NAC MG, now MG Motor UK, to distribute parts for the new MG TF car.
“Our excellent geographic coverage allows us to deliver replacement parts to the new MG dealer network daily and overnight, ensuring that repairs can be made in the shortest possible time,” comments Hipkiss.
