Trading since 1979, we have grown to become one of the leading suppliers of Truck, Bus and Trailer spare parts and accessories.
The company’s deep understanding of the pressures and stresses of its 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 own Trucks and Trailers on the road, Bob began sourcing components directly and building up his own stock. Which in due course led to him beginning to supply other local hauliers with components.
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. 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 6,000sq foot industrial unit was purchased, neighbouring our existing unit and 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, Coalville, Bradford, and most recently Knottingley.
Complimentary to our core business has been the acquisition of a Radiator and Fuel Tank refurbishing operation, Lincolnshire Radiators.
In May 2019, Partic acquired Advance Truck Components Ltd, with branches in Hull, Immingham, and Scunthorpe.
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.
