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
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.
