Classic car spares firm getting global respect

Classic car company AH Spares has been having a good time of late after securing new business across the world.

The firm, based in Southam, Warwickshire, was established in 1972 and now 70 per cent of its customers hail from the US, Australia and South Africa.

Specialising in the manufacture and supply of spare parts for Austin Healey sports cars, the company has reported plenty of demand for its wares, which has led to the purchase of more property next to its Kineton Road Industrial Estate base.

"Trading on such an international scale definitely makes life interesting. We have customers coming into the shop from all over the world as well as contacting us through the internet," commented Bob Hill, managing director of AH Spares.

A number of classic car specialists will be making their way to the Race Retro event at Stoneleigh Park in Coventry later this year.

This includes Cape International, which will be using its stand to show how it can improve any Austin Healey.
