The International MG Y Type Register is pleased to make the following announcement on behalf of C&C Parts:



Weil, aged 67, started restoring brake parts for old timers 30 years ago and so laid down the foundation for C&C Parts we know today; the specialist in brake parts for classic cars, trucks, forklift trucks, excavators agricultural vehicles and much more.

Because in his family there was no one to succeed him, Weil decided to look for a suitable candidate to carry on the company. As a result, on 13 September 2018 Frans van der Linden, in cooperation with LIOF, has taken over C&C Parts. Frans is an expreienced enterpreneur with a technical background and a big love for cars.

This takeover guarantees the continuity and future of C&C Parts as an indepedent company. With Weil staying connected to C&C Parts as technical advisor, the company's unique knowledge will be preserved for its customers. Together with our loyal and professional employees we look at C&C Parts' future with confidence where we are there for our customers with the knowledge, professionality and service that you have become accustomed to from us, like we have always been.
