AB Components Ltd becomes UK distributor for the Filtration Group

13 June, 2019

Derbyshire-based AB Components Ltd has been appointed UK distributor for the worldwide company, Filtration Group, which purchased Mahle Industrial Filtration (supplier of air and hydraulic filtration products) in 2016.

This new appointment strengthens the existing partnership between AB Components Ltd and the Filtration Group. It means UK customers will now be able to access the specialist filters directly from AB Components’ own stock held at its llkeston site.

The new set up will enable UK customers to access technical advice and specialist knowhow from the ABC customer services team, and to benefit directly from a quicker turnaround and reduced downtime due to the shorter delivery times (customers would normally count a minimum of 5 to 7 days to receive the product).

As the UK distributor, AB Components Ltd now offers customers the opportunity to purchase the industrial filters in GBP, through a UK bank account and with no minimum orders, which in today’s current climate is particularly advantageous.

AB Components Ltd, founded by current managing director James Edgar in 2007, began supplying the Filtration Group range of industrial filters, formerly the Mahle Industrial Filtration brand, to supplement the company’s range of stock of more than 9000 different filtration products. This recent appointment confirms the growing collaboration between AB Components Ltd and the Filtration Group and is in line with the company’s ambitious growth plans for the UK market.

“Becoming a UK Distributor for the Filtration Group’s Industrial Hydraulic and Air division (Mahle Group) is incredibly exciting for myself and all the team here at AB Components Ltd,” said Edgar. “The strong reputation and the high quality of our industrial filtration range and accessories has always been important to us and to our UK customers.”

Working in partnership

He continued: “At ABC, we are absolutely committed to working in partnership with all of our customers and suppliers. Thanks to this new strengthened collaboration with the Filtration Group and in particular our relationship with Ian Micklewright, UK sales manager, we are able to guarantee our high levels of service, improve on existing delivery times and still maintain a similar cost price.”

Ian Micklewright, UK sales manager at Filtration Group, commented: “This new appointment is a great way forward enabling our Group to best serve our UK market. We are extremely pleased to appoint AB Components Ltd as a UK distributor; it was the natural next step in our plan. Filtration Group recognises ABC’s reputation for high-quality customer service and expertise within the UK filter market. We are delighted to be reinforcing our relationship with James and his team, as we also recognise the demand within the UK market for our specialist filters. We are confident that our clients will receive outstanding technical advice and a high level of customer service every time.”
