Eltrekka is Greece’s largest supplier of automobile and truck parts for the aftermarket. The company represents over 40 of the world’s top manufacturers including NGK, KYB, Valeo, Federal Mogul (Champion, Ferodo), Sachs, Brembo, Gates, TRW, Delphi and carries a full range of exhaust parts (Imasaf, Bosal, Dinex) and diesel products (Delphi, Denso, Hartridge). In October 2008 Eltrekka further extended its leading position in the market by undertaking the storage and distribution of Ford genuine parts on behalf of Velmar, member company of the Vassilakis group. In November 2010, Eltrekka signed an agreement with BP Oil Hellenic S.A. for the distribution of BP lubricants. Eltrekka’s priority is to provide the best possible service to its customers through its experienced personnel, fast delivery, and its sophisticated logistics and information systems.
Eltrak, the exclusive distributor for Caterpillar in Greece since 1982, entered the auto parts sector in 1997 through its acquisition of Lucas Service Hellas. In 1998 Eltrak began a partnership with the European buying group Auto Distribution International (ADI), for the import and distribution of auto parts, thereby significantly increasing the company’s product range. Eltrak became the leader in the auto parts market in 2000 through the creation of Eltrekka resulting from the merger of ELTRAK (AD Hellas) and Ekka (Ekka Automotive). With innovative ideas and systems aiming at high and fast services to the customer that for the first time were applied in Greece, Eltrekka constituted a model for the automotive sector. In 2005 an agreement was signed between Autohellas and Eltrak for Autohellas’ 50% participation as a shareholder of Eltrekka. Autohellas, the Hertz dealer in Greece, is part of the Vassilakis Group which also owns Aegean Airlines, as well as various car dealerships (Saab, Opel, Seat, Ford and Volvo). Autohellas operates the largest private automobile fleet in Greece with approximately 28.000 cars serviced in their own workshops. This agreement of strategic importance offers obvious synergies and many possibilities of further development and strengthening of the company.
Eltrekka’s headquarters are situated in Nea Kifissia while two branches operate in prime locations in Athens. Eltrekka’s new state of the art central warehouse and logistics center of 7,500 m2 is located at Elefsina. Eltrekka also maintains a strong presence in Northern Greece, where it operates branches which stock and delivers a full range of parts out of Larisa as well as Thessaloniki. Other branches are located in Patra and Crete. This network of branches enables Eltrekka to offer the shortest delivery time to the whole country.
