Austin Healey supplier sees online orders rise 38 per cent since lockdown

A H Spares

A H Spares, which says it is the original and largest Austin Healey and Sprite parts specialist in the world, has shipped more parcels and received more online orders than ever before since March.

Over the last six months, the Warwickshire-based parts supplier has seen a 45 per cent growth in the number of parcels it has shipped out, with online orders rising by 38 per cent.

Rebecca Kemsley, director at A H Spares, said: “A H Spares has seen a record growth since March, no doubt in part as more people have been at home with the free time to carry out restoration projects, large or small, on their Healey which might not have been possible before.

“The growth is also a reflection of the strong team spirit at A H Spares and as a result of stocking the largest inventory of Austin Healey spare parts on the planet, meaning we can successfully, and quickly, fulfil the vast majority of orders without delay.”

Aside from nuts and washers the other most popular parts included cylinder heads and steering boxes.

Based in Warwickshire, the family business was founded in 1972 and is now in its third family generation. It has expanded over the years to become the biggest supplier of replacement parts for Austin Healey models and has developed an in-house trim shop while also establishing a professional sheet metal manufacturer A H Panels.

Rebecca added: “A H Spares ships out orders across the world, with the USA in particular being a strong market as many models were shipped stateside, so it is especially pleasing to see the export side also performing beyond expectations. In fact, we recently sent a chassis to Hawaii and another to Puerto Rico.”
