AAG to merge FPS Distribution and Platinum International

Alliance Automotive Group UK and Ireland (AAG) has announced that from 1st January 2024, Platinum International will merge with FPS Distribution.

By combining these two companies, AAG says it will be able to offer an even more extensive product and service range to its customers.

This will be achieved through a broader stock profile, increased product range, and centralisation of IT systems, according to AAG.

Steve Richardson, AAG managing director, said: “Both FPS and Platinum are names synonymous with excellent service and market leading logistics, so it makes sense to bring these entities together as part of the group’s development.

“The integration delivers a more effective and efficient solution for our customers, making us even easier to deal with and creating a much stronger offering for the future.”

Following the merger, AAG adds that Platinum will no longer exist as a separate trading entity, however, Platinum Batteries will remain a key brand for AAG’s customers.

Moving forward, FPS will be the exclusive distributor of both Platinum and FPS product ranges.
