Halfords to stock Lucas bulbs

ELTA Automotive Secures Prestigious Contract with Halfords, Elevating Automotive Bulb Supply

ELTA Automotive has been awarded a new contract with Halfords, the UK’s leading provider of motoring and cycling products and services, supplying automotive bulbs into all stores throughout the UK and Ireland.

In its role as an official licensee for the trusted Lucas brand, ELTA will be supplying Halfords stores across the UK and Ireland with premium Lucas bulbs, whilst also providing Halfords’ exceptional own branded range.

This strategic partnership highlights the strength of the iconic Lucas brand and is testament to ELTA’s delivery of premium quality automotive products.

Tim Brotherton, Marketing Manager for ELTA Automotive commented:

“Lucas has been lighting our journeys for over 140 years. Long before the Ford Model T, even before the first Mercedes ‘horseless carriage’, there was Lucas. In recent years the brand has found great success amongst the automotive trade. Supply into the Halfords network will now provide a direct platform for drivers to access the iconic brand that they know and love”

Under the contract, ELTA will supply over 5 million bulbs annually to Halfords’ network of nearly 400 stores across the UK and Ireland.

A pivotal factor in forging the new partnership was the shared vision and commitment to environmental sustainability. Elta Automotive closely matched Halfords’ environmental asks, leading to the removal of all plastic packaging from Lucas and Halfords bulbs range.

Yousaf Kharal, Buyer for Halfords commented:

Based on calendar year 2023 sales, we estimate we will remove 28 tonnes of plastic from the supply chain each year by moving to 100% plastic free packaging with ELTA. This is the equivalent weight of two fire engines! A huge win for Halfords and in no small part down to ELTA’s hard work in enabling us to achieve this goal”

The partnership with Halfords has solidified ELTA Automotive’s position as a premier supplier and expedited the company’s plans for sustainable growth. Craig O’Neil, Director of Sales for ELTA, affirmed: 

“Collaborating with Halfords’ team of ESG experts has been incredibly rewarding for ELTA. Our focus on the needs of distributors, fitters, and drivers has been unwavering, and this partnership places us in an even stronger position for sustainable growth.”
