ACM Parts, the supply business unit of AMA Group, hosted an exclusive trade evening at its new distribution centre in Somerton, Victoria. Current and prospective customers, as well as media representatives, received tours of the 19,500 square metre facility. Exclusive showcases highlighted parts and new releases in ACM Parts’ four product ranges – genuine parts, reclaimed parts, aftermarket parts and collision repair consumables.
The event also featured a ‘meet and greet’ with Australian champion racing driver and Touring Car Masters competitor Cameron McConville, who attended with his ACM Parts-sponsored 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS.
ACM said the Somerton facility allows the company to consolidate and expand operations previously based at two smaller sites in Victoria, and to increase its national parts distribution network capacity.
The site, formerly operated by Mazda Australia, is equipped with more than 5000 square metres of hardstand and fit-for-purpose access. It provides access to key transport infrastructure including the Western Ring Road, Tullamarine Freeway, and Hume Highway interchange, as well as the planned North-East Link. The site also has significant solar power generation capabilities.
“We are extremely excited to add this facility to ACM’s network of parts distribution centres, increasing our overall network capacity to more than 40,000 square metres across Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, and Perth. This increased capacity will allow us to help ensure parts availability to fulfill the needs of our customers nationwide,” said Adam O’Sullivan, AMA Group Executive General Manager – Supply.
