It is with great excitement Stealth can announce that Heatleys Sales Pty Ltd as a part of Stealth Global Holding Ltd has signed a sale agreement with Eagers Automotive and AMCAP to acquire Skipper Transport Parts (STP), effective 1st August 2021.
When we began the acquisition process some months ago, we were clear that our preference was to acquire a business that complemented our existing operations, that possessed the knowledge and expertise to naturally expand the Stealth group, and that would continue to provide quality products and services to our customer base.
Skippers is a highly regarded market leading distributor of Industrial MRO supplies with significant exposure to customer markets: Automotive, Truck & Trailer, Mining, Bus, Agriculture and Industrial serving business customers (85% of sales) and retail customers (15% of sales) in Western Australia and Queensland. This includes the former four COV’s and Coventry’s Automotive branches which were rebranded in 2016 to Skipper Transport Parts.
Stealth has also secured a 3-year distribution agreement with AMCAP for the distribution of various Original Equipment Manufacturer ‘OEM’ genuine and after-market parts including Ford and Holden in Western Australia as well as Cummins Filtration, Donaldson and Exide Batteries Australia-wide.
With the addition of STP to the groups portfolio of brands we hold an advantaged position with our wide-range product offering, high-touch solutions model, store network, supply chain infrastructure, robust eCommerce channels and deep customer and supplier relationship.
Below is a two-minute corporate video outlining the acquisition and how Skippers is a complimentary fit to the Groups existing infrastructure and operations.
