Sup­ply­ing BPA range


TRANZMILE, one of Aus­tralia’s lead­ing in­de­pen­dent af­ter­mar­ket truck and trailer parts sup­pli­ers, has an­nounced it has pur­chased the com­mer­cial parts and in­tel­lec­tual prop­erty of Brake Parts Aus­tralia.

Brake Parts Aus­tralia for the past 30 years has been one of Aus­tralia’s pre-em­i­nent whole­sale dis­trib­u­tors of foun­da­tion brake parts and more re­cently a full range of air brake valves, fit­tings, air brake hose and ad­di­tional com­po­nen­try to suit OEM trailer man­u­fac­tur­ers and af­ter­mar­ket parts sup­pli­ers.

BPA went into liq­ui­da­tion re­cently af­ter 30 years op­er­at­ing as a whole­sale parts im­ports busi­ness to the com­mer­cial and pas­sen­ger ve­hi­cle mar­ket.

“We im­me­di­ately saw the op­por­tu­nity to add the BPA range to our grow­ing whole­sale parts busi­ness when we found out about BPA’s trou­bles” said Tranzmile’s man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Cameron Black.

“We have been build­ing our whole­sale parts range so that we could ser­vice our own grow­ing net­work of stores, our own re­sellers and in­creas­ingly OEM trailer man­u­fac­tur­ers, and pur­chas­ing the com­mer­cial parts stock and in­tel­lec­tual prop­erty of BPA was a per­fect fit to this,” he said.

The Brake Parts Aus­tralia and OE Spares brands will live on, with Tranzmile con­tin­u­ing to im­port and sup­ply the full range of BPA com­mer­cial parts.

“I am invit­ing all pre­vi­ous cus­tomers of BPA to con­tact us so we can dis­cuss on­go­ing sup­ply of the parts that they were buy­ing off BPA. We pur­chased over $250,000 worth of stock from BPA, which we now have avail­able for BPA cus­tomers, and we have al­ready kick­started our new whole­sale pro­gram with the ap­point­ment of Ron Hath­away as our whole­sale parts man­ager,” Cameron went on to say.

“The BPA and OE Spares brands that are al­ready well known in the in­dus­try will live on, so re­ally noth­ing will change other than the fact we will be car­ry­ing much higher lev­els of stock and fo­cus­ing on grow­ing both the range of parts and our whole­sale parts busi­ness”. SOUTH BUR­NETT
