Welcome to C.T.S

CTS - Carparts Trade Supplies was founded in 2003 by Johnny Campbell and Norman Slater in South Shields. An independent business, the company has rapidly established an enviable reputation for the supply of quality parts allied to the most competitive pricing into the automotive aftermarket, we are also now trading members of Group Auto which is the leading UK independent trading group.


With over 50 years combined experience of wholesaling to the motor trade the guiding principles have served the company well as it has expanded to the current size of 3 branches in the network (our most recent opening being Durham in July 2015), making CTS the leading automotive independent parts distributor in the North East, however with the business being independent it means a much more flexible and fast response can be made to any customer requirements or queries.


With a fleet of 14 vehicles and 2 scooters we make over 500 deliveries a day from Morpeth in the North to Redcar in the South.


With the pace of increasing regulation and environmental demands, as well as the technical revolution in new vehicle design, we are constantly updating our ranges and offers.


This is never more true than in the present era of the automotive industry, where we supply only quality branded car components, exhausts and engine management parts to all areas of the Motor Trade, including garages, fast fit outlets, national chains, technical specialists and retail DIY shops. Every Product and support package is carefully selected to compliment and strengthen our service to our customer base.


Success in the past is no guarantee for a healthy future for any business, and it is that motivation which fuels CTS' determination for just the future, by providing the most comprehensive service and supports to its customers in the aftermarket today through quality service and quality staff.
