XPart acquires Racing Green assets posted by WWW.PARTSFORTVRS.COM on 20th September 2022

XPart expands its Original Equipment parts offering to include the TVR Marque

  • Birmingham-based former parts division of MG Rover acquires Racing Green assets
  • The acquisition adds 4,000 specific part lines to XPart’s existing inventory of over 1 million components
  • Operations will move to XPart’s 35,0000 sq ft bespoke parts warehouse in Birmingham
  • The TVR assets add a further marque to the Leacy Group offering

Today, XPart, the former parts division of MG Rover, expanded its Original Equipment parts offering to include the TVR marque with the acquisition of the assets of the historically TVR approved parts supplier Racing Green Cars Limited www.partsfortvrs.com

XPart, which has a global network of approved dealers and specializes in the supply of OE quality parts for MG Rover models, has expanded its operation to include the TVR marque to supply both TVR dealers and owners alike. Operating from a 35,0000 sq ft bespoke parts warehouse in Birmingham, this acquisition will see XPart add a further 4,000 specific part lines to its existing inventory of over 1 million components to address the requirements of existing TVR owners and the members of the TVR Heritage Network.

These part lines comprise a mix of what was left in the stores after the Blackpool factory closed, together with stock from OEMs that originally supplied products for the old cars. Where such parts no longer exist, Racing Green with the approval of TVR used the TVR archives and extensive library of technical drawings to facilitate the remanufacture of replacement parts guaranteed to match, or exceed, the performance defined by the original specifications. XPart intend to continue to remanufacture high quality replacement parts for TVR vehicles, as and when they become unavailable, to ensure that as many TVR vehicles stay on the road as possible.

Graham Love, Chairman of Racing Green, commented:

“We have been proud to support the TVR marque over many years, firstly as TVR Parts Ltd, and more recently as Racing Green Parts Ltd, and we are confident that the move to XPart will provide TVR owners with continued security of supply and an even greater range of high quality parts into the future.”

Tim Lyons, Managing Director of XPart Limited, commented:

“Xpart are committed to sustainability and keeping classic British cars on the road. As with XPart’s existing operations, OE Quality and premium service are the cornerstones of our parts business and adding another OE brand with considerable historical synergies with the legacy Rover Group is a perfect fit. The acquisition of the www.partsfortvrs.com assets provide an exciting opportunity with an iconic British marque and we look forward to getting to know the TVR community and servicing their requirements”.
