EUROSPARES ABOUT US
Our story began in the early 1980’s when founder Vincent Pumo; a native Sicilian living in Manchester used to travel into Italy each month with his 11-year-old son James.
Vince was an entrepreneur by nature and had established 2 high end hair salons at a young age. With a keen eye for trends and big hair becoming all the rage in the 80’s, he seized the opportunity to start importing hairdryers from Italy into the UK market.
Each month Vince and James made the long and perilous 1000-mile trip over the channel and up through the Alps to finally arrive in Maranello a few days later in a 1950’s Type 2 VW Transporter (and anybody that has knowledge of these vans will be well aware that they were characterfully unreliable and most, including this one, no heating what so ever).
Now where does this all link to supercar parts I hear you ask? Well, just like the rest of us, Vince had a passion for some of the finer things in life, Italian cars being one of them.
As the 80’s progressed, this passion saw him getting to know David Clarke, the founder of Graypaul Motors; a newly appointed Ferrari service centre situated in the North of England.
With Vince being full of charisma, they became great friends very quickly and with a lack of supply chains at the time, Vince and James would travel around Modena to the likes of Pininfarina and Maranello to collect parts for David during their regular trips to the motherland.
Over the years, the trips saw Vince and James build great relationships with suppliers and gain a strong knowledge of the spare parts world and these trips continued right through until David sold Graypaul Motors in 1985.
With the opportunity arising, Vince took the plunge to move into the spare parts industry himself in July that year and Eurospares (continental parts) Ltd was finally born.
James has continued the tradition with trips into Italy to find rare and exciting spares, however, with the embrace of modern technology they’re not required to be as regular as they once were and are certainly more comfortable than they would have been in the old Transporter 2.
Since the beginning, Eurospares has strived to be the best and has grown to be the largest supplier of new and used Ferrari parts, Lamborghini parts, Maserati parts and Porsche parts in the world.
We’ve pushed forward and invested in the future of the company during the good times but there’s also been some hardships over the years too. A devastating fire in 2002 which started in a neighbouring building saw our offices and warehouse burn to the ground. The 2007-2008 financial crisis caused a plethora of concessionaires and dealerships to close around the globe and of course, the whole world has suffered during the recent global pandemic.
We’ve continued to grow throughout, and the progression of the company is akin to the strong leadership of James Pumo (who took the reins in the late 90’s) and the passionate, admirable attitude of the staff which has helped the company to push forward and continue to support the global community that we’ve helped build over time.
Everyone that works here is part of the family (many of which are actually members of the family) and we have always been proud of the friendly, professional and welcoming nature we extend to all of our customers.
