Motorone

MotorOne was first established in 1972 and is Australia’s leading distributor of automotive aftercare products.

THE BRIEF

Quadrant was attracted to MotorOne due to its market leading distribution network with high barriers to entry, track record of consistent earnings – organic and acquisition, as well as being in a defensive and growing sector.
Quadrant acquired a majority stake in August 2016 alongside the founders of the business and existing management.
