Luton-based Comline Auto Parts Ltd (Comline) is a proudly British supplier of replacement vehicle parts operating within the automotive aftermarket. From humble origins back in 1991, Comline has established itself as a major force within an intensely competitive marketplace and has now become one of the fastest growing automotive brands in Europe.
Comline is a proud recipient of The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade this year, an accolade that recognises the organisation’s phenomenal success in overseas markets. In fact, since 2012, Comline turnover in export territories has increased a staggering 300%. The roots of this success lie first and foremost with the brand’s product mission which it applies across a diverse product range encompassing Filters, Brake Pads, Brake Discs, Steering & Suspension, Clutch Kits, Water Pumps, Lubricants, CV Joints, Hub Assembly Kits and Wiper Blades.
Throughout this range, Comline prides itself on delivering consistent, reliable performance with genuine value-for-money; a recipe has helped establish the brand as a staple for aftermarket businesses throughout Europe and beyond. Comline has forged strong links with export distributors in over 40 countries and these valued partners have each played a pivotal role in propelling the Comline business to new heights. Comline Managing Director, Divyesh Kamdar is keen to underline the role of both partners and employees in the ongoing success of Comline: “It is the hard work and dedication of our suppliers, distributors and employees that has helped fuel the Comline fire and push our business forward. Receiving an honour as prestigious as ‘The Queen’s Award for Enterprise’ is testament to a collective focus and is a proud moment for all connected with Comline.”
Keen to maintain its considerable momentum, there is clear belief that growth can continue; Divyesh Kamdar added: “There is no shortage of opportunity for Comline and our foot remains firmly on the accelerator. Product diversification and the penetration of new markets provide realistic growth opportunities, but I’m equally confident that our valued partners will continue to deliver growth within established markets. These are exciting times!”
