AMCAP retains four regional stores in Covs sale
A final decision was reached on 22 February 2016 between AHG and GPC to proceed with the sale of 21 of the 25 Covs stores to GPC. Four Covs regional stores (Albany, Esperance, Karratha and Port Hedland) and Drivetrain will be excluded from the revised transaction and AHG will retain those stores and operate them through AMCAP.
In retaining the four sites, AMCAP sees significant opportunity to expand its operations in areas where it already has a presence while maintaining and growing the business and relationships with the existing loyal and local automotive customers in those regional areas. AMCAP will further promote and invest in current product lines, including Ford, Holden, AC Delco, Truck and Coatings together with the support of manufacturers.
These four branches will be rebranded as Skipper Transport Parts which is an existing division within AMCAP that will offer its customers the same products and services that customers enjoy today
