Autoparts & Diagnostics Ltd with branches located throughout the South West has been identified as one of London Stock Exchange’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain for the third time in five years, having previously been included in 2015 and 2017. The report is a celebration of the UK’s fastest growing and most dynamic small and medium sized businesses.

To be included in the list, companies needed to show consistent revenue growth over a minimum of three years, significantly outperforming their industry peers. More detail on the methodology can be found in the report online at www.lseg.com/resources/1000-companies-inspire

Autoparts & Diagnostics Ltd has grown organically since 2003 and now has nine branches operating in Bristol, Cheltenham, Cirencester, Coleford, Gloucester, Tewkesbury, Yate, Witney and our new branch Worcester, which has just recently opened.

As members of the international aftermarket group AD International, with a combined turnover of circa €8 billion, we have access to the major brands, products and services required to operate successfully in today’s market.

Managing Director Tristan Seal said: “I’m very proud of the commitment and effort that our entire team has shown in expanding and developing our product portfolio, services and facilities for our extensive customer base. Customers not only expect the best products, but also demand the very best in service from our parts advisors and delivery teams. We recognise our customers have plenty of choice when it comes to sourcing their parts and I would take this opportunity to say thank you to all our customers and to all our staff for making the company what it is today.”

David Schwimmer, CEO, London Stock Exchange Group: said: “This report highlights the vital role of SMEs in driving economic growth, leading innovation and providing jobs across the UK. In this challenging year for businesses, it is more important than ever to shine a light on these stories of resilience and entrepreneurship. The success of UK SMEs is crucial as we rebuild a post COVID-19 economy, and London Stock Exchange Group is committed to helping growth companies achieve their potential.”
