LKQ will manage maintenance for LeasePlan in Europe

LKQ Europe will manage vehicle maintenance for LeasePlan in Europe. The distributor of automotive aftermarket parts and the vehicle leasing company have agreed to ontinue and expand their cooperation to a European level.

The multi-year agreement is based on a dual mode of collaboration; it includes the maintenance for the LeasePlan fleet in LKQ-affiliated repair centers and the supply of original quality spare parts by LKQ to the network of LeasePlan partner garages across Europe.

LKQ and LeasePlan are already collaborating successfully in select countries, and we are pleased to have extended our partnership to a pan-European level,” says Varun Laroyia, CEO LKQ Europe. “LeasePlan is a leader in Car-as-a-Service, and we are confident that there is mutual benefit in partnering on a larger scale. Our established processes have proven to be efficient and effective, and we look forward to providing LeasePlan with our broader expertise and know-how in spare parts distribution and repair.”

"We are delighted to have reached a multi-year cooperation agreement with the leading distributor in the European automotive aftermarket," comments Ignacio Barbadillo Llorens, Chief Operations Officer LeasePlan. "Thanks to this prestigious collaboration, significant local and central efficiencies and benefits for our customers will be achieved.”
