AutoParts designs and manufactures automotive components for heavy duty commercial vehicles, including trucks, buses and agricultural equipment. Production began at the site in the 1990s, and has grown significantly since its inception, in terms of both employment numbers and production output. Manufacturing activity is focused around two main business streams. First, the assembly of automotive components supplied to vehicle manufacturers for installation in new vehicles, and secondly the production of aftermarket components which must be replaced by users at regular intervals through the life of vehicles. While demand for new parts closely reflects volatile automotive markets, demand for replacement components is generally more stable and predictable.
