Allport acquires Alert, adds products
As of the beginning of the year Neil Allport Motorsports Ltd has moved into the marine, trucking and motorcycle arena following the acquisition of Alert Motorsport, an Auckland based company which specialised in the supply and manufacturing of all things hosing and fittings.
Marketing manager Richard Allport explained that Allports has bought Alert Motorsport so as to be able to add the lines of hardware products that Alert carried such as Samco silicone hoses, HEL brake hoses, Aeroquip fittings, Setrab oil coolers, to name a few products.
Neil Allport Motorsports originally set up in 1986 as a motorsport company specialising in car preparation, and in recent years has become the leading importer and retailer of many leading motorsport products from around the globe.
After years competing at the top level of the New Zealand motorsport and winning multiple NZ titles as a successful driver and race and rally car builder Allports are now moving into the bigger commercial arena.
