Top 50 Indie Ascona Group Signs Industry-Wide Supply Agreement with Newco Europe UK | New
Top 50 Indie Ascona Group has entered into an agreement with Newco Europe UK for the supply of car maintenance, truck accessories, AdBlue, oils, lubricants and windshield washers to 59 Ascona stores.
A whole new range of car care accessories has already been installed in Ascona’s portfolio, which will further complement the extensive assortment of truck accessories and create a comprehensive offering for their customers.
The rollout of the full Newco product line is underway, however, the full offering can be seen at Ascona’s new flagship store, Green Garage in Pembroke, West Wales.
The agreement will create additional efficiencies for the group by allowing Ascona to consolidate a number of existing suppliers into a single route to market.
Paul Stoddart, Ascona Group Commercial Director, commented: “The introduction of Newco’s non-food products into our growing UK store portfolio will provide our customers with a wide range of products covering automotive service and more. Working with Newco also creates a smoother and more efficient supply chain for the group. This, in turn, has allowed us to streamline the ordering processes for our site managers, giving them more time to focus on serving our customers. We look forward to working with them and exploring other sourcing opportunities in the future. “
Chris Nuttall, Country Account Manager at Newco Europe, added: “It is great to work with the Ascona team as they move quickly on their exciting growth plans. By offering a one-stop solution for non-food products and using our vast experience in gas stations, I believe we have provided a fantastic solution to an often overlooked category in the forecourt market.
