It employs 60 people and runs seven sites: Two central warehouses in Guimarães and Porto/Rio Tinto, three retails stores in Guimarães, Porto and Leça da Palmeira, and two associated retail stores in Vila das Aves and Vizela.

FIMAG, an employer to 52 people, looks back at 35 years of company history. The family-owned and family-run importer and distributor of spare parts for passenger cars was founded by Vitor Souto in 1985 and has grown to become one of the leading Aftermarket partners for workshops throughout Portugal, including the Azores and Madeira.

Headquartered in the city of Braga in the north of the country with a central warehouse at the same site, it currently operates three additional distribution centres in the cities of Coimbra, Porto and Lisbon. The portfolio includes automotive spare parts from the most renowned international Aftermarket brands and the company’s logistics safeguard quick delivery to customers countrywide.

AleCarPeças represents a large customer base all over Portugal, including the Azores and Madeira.

The distributor can rely on the experience from 38 years of company history.
