About Partic Motor Spares Ltd.
The company’s deep understanding of the pressures and stresses of it client base can be traced back to founder Christopher Robin Beard (Bob), who cut his teeth in the haulage sector before setting up Partic in 1979.
Frustrated by the difficulties he experienced sourcing parts to keep his vehicles and trailers on the road, Bob began sourcing components directly, which in due course led to his beginning to supply other hauliers with components, and in due course this element of the business became increasingly important.
Soon the Beard’s farm premises became the centre of a fast-expanding parts supply operation, although in the very early days working conditions were quite basic.
By the time Bob’s son Ian had returned from university and joined the business, parts supply had become more and more important and with that, came the need to expand. In due course the company decided to purchase some land on Brunel Drive Industrial Estate in Newark and designed/built a unit with 6,000sq foot of floor space in 1991. In 2013 a further industrial unit was secured neighbouring our existing unit. In the process doubling floor space and creating a beneficial knock on effect in terms of the quantity and variety of parts carried, in an ever-changing Commercial Vehicle Market.
The company has since strategically opened depots in Lincoln, Nottingham, Worksop, Melton Mowbray and most recently Coalville.
Complimentary to our core business has been the acquisition of a Radiator and Fuel Tank refurbishing operation, Lincolnshire Radiators.
Here at Partic, we continue to examine further potential avenues of organic growth and areas where we can enhance the service we provide to an ever-expanding client base. Through all these developments in the business, our business model has never changed.
