Forming one legal entity in July 2023, the move follows the acquisition of the REPA Group (the CCS parent company) by Parts Town Unlimited (First Choice Group’s parent company) in 2022. The move brings together many of the world’s leading spare parts providers under one parent company - Parts Town Unlimited.
Our mission is driven by our core values – Safety, Integrity, Innovation, Passion, Courage and Community. These values are shared by all our team members. In addition to our core values, we are committed to supporting the future of the catering equipment industry as a whole. We support this by being active and longstanding members of the key industry associations.

History of First Choice Group

First Choice Group began life as First Choice Catering Spares in 1999. In 2007 the company signed its very first Master Distribution Partnership (MDP) with MKN, going on to acquire its 1000th customer account and becoming the UK’s leading spare parts provider of OEM spare parts in the process.

Built on innovation and technology First Choice Group introduced pioneering systems to improve the service to all customers and partners. These systems included a ground-breaking lean-lift system, operating an award-winning technical training division, First Choice Training and specialising in key sectors including refrigeration, laundry and bakery.

In 2017, First Choice Group moved to a new purpose-built 100,000 sqft home at Kingswood Lakeside, Cannock. That same year, the company were acquired by PT Holdings LLC, the parent company of Parts Town. This move enabled First Choice Group to catapult its offering even further, sharing knowledge and resource with the team in the United States, whilst also opening opportunities with leading American equipment brands.

History of CCS

It all started in 1996, when Commercial Catering Spares (CCS) set out to supply the catering spares industry with quality spare parts and friendly service. In 2011 CCS moved from its original building on Green Lane, Heywood to a much bigger site on Hill Top Road, Heywood, complete with 1,200 sqm of traditional warehouse space. This move enabled CCS to introduce a new WMS system and provide customers access to over 80,000 in-stock spare parts.

To take the business to the next level, CCS joined REPA GROUP (formerly known as GEV GROUP) in 2017. Operating under the same umbrella from 2018, CCS aligned with its European sister companies, as GEV, LF, EPGC and ATEL. The transition into the REPA GROUP family gave CCS customers access to over 700 brands and over two million parts. With the backing of leading European spare parts suppliers, CCS significantly grew its range of original spare parts, product availability and faster delivery thanks to further stock holding across Europe.
