a wealth of knowledge from over 80 years experience

Wood Auto Supplies Limited is one of the leading independent manufacturers and distributors of auto-electrical components in the United Kingdom. Established in 1929 by Mr Reginald Wood as a battery repair and servicing company, it quickly expanded to become one of the UK's leading manufacturers of alternator, starter motor, and dynamo components.

Today, based in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, Wood Auto operates from over 100,000sqft of warehouse and manufacturing facilities, with additional distribution warehouses in Preston, Belfast, Newcastle, and Bracknell. We are one of the country's leading distributors and exporters of aftermarket auto-electrical products.


one of the largest ranges of stock in Europe

We are proud to have one of the broadest ranges of rotating machines in the aftermarket, with currently over 5,000 different alternators and starters, and over 30,000 associated components. Our impressive list of stock items grows daily and covers rotating electrical products and sub-components for standard passenger vehicles, commercial, marine, industrial, and agricultural applications. Furthermore, our personal approach to all our customers means that we welcome enquiries for non-catalogued items; where we will endeavour to source or remanufacture the unit or component concerned. Wherever possible, our products are sold on an outright basis, without the need for surcharge and return of old core.

Our workshops and manufacturing facility greatly complement our distribution operation. We manufacture starter armatures, field coils, solenoids, pinions, and voltage regulators ranging from small batches for niche market applications through to scheduled production for large international clients. Our engineers and skilled technicians also offer a bespoke service for one-off repair, rewind, and remanufacture of vintage motors.

We have no minimum order size and we will happily despatch orders from a small packet through to a multi-pallet consignment. Premium delivery options are also available and special packaging and labelling requirements can also be catered for.
