Respected American transmission company Competition Clutch is building on the sales success of its diverse race-quality clutch range by opening a dedicated UK sales office and logistics centre.
Competition Clutch has partnered with industry leading logistics provider Universal Automotive to allow UK end-users and retailers to enjoy the same levels of stockholding and customer service that has made the brand so popular in its native USA.
Based in Kidderminster, Universal Automotive’s state-of-the-art, 40,000 square foot, computer controlled facility will carry all popular Competition Clutch lines for immediate delivery, with the ability to rapidly order more specialist products from the states with very short lead times. Universal are also the logistics partners for household names like Denso, Brembo and Monroe.
At present the Competition Clutch range covers literally hundred fitments and includes fast road and motorsport clutch kits, discs and flywheels. The range has already found favour in the UK, being the first choice of many drag racers and drifters as well as being specified as a control part for one-make racing series like the Buddy Club Civic Cup.Commenting on this latest development, Dan McCarny, sales manager for Competition Clutch said ‘We are delighted to be able to offer our UK customers a dedicated call centre and customer service team, as well as the fact that by working with Universal, we can increase our inventory of parts and improve our speed of delivery. This is a great partnership for us that will allow us to build on the success and hard work of our existing UK dealer network.’
