We celebrate 80 years in business

This year we celebrate our 80th anniversary, a significant milestone in any business and something to certainly celebrate.

FPS or “Ferraris Piston Service” as it was known, was started in 1934 by an Italian born gentleman, Alfredo Ferraris, making and selling pistons in the London area.
The business has grown from those modest beginnings to a team of over 1,000 employees in 2014, creating one of the largest national distributors of parts in the UK aftermarket. We are now a network of 20 branches along with a National Distribution Centre based in Sheffield and two bulk warehouses.

We have been built on service excellence and this now precedes our well established name in the aftermarket, continuing to build solid partnerships with suppliers and customers alike.

“2014 brings many new opportunities for us and equally for our customers and suppliers,” said Neil Davis, Managing Director. “Continued investment into improved service, wider ranges and brands will bring development opportunities for all of us.”

In recent years we have increased our product portfolio to include accessories and maintenance products, although the core of the business remains firmly in the supply of components to local motor factors or jobbers.

We would like to take the opportunity to thank all of our customers and suppliers for their continued support throughout the decades and look forward to a prosperous future working together.
