Bepco then strengthened its European presence further when Agripieces, based in Agen, France was added to the group shortly afterwards and Tracpieces also branched out into Germany through a subsidiary, Tracpieces Ersatzeile.
As Bepco expanded internationally, in Australia Dandenong Diesel, the distributor in Victoria was also acquired in 1996 through a holding company Austshaw Pty Ltd which subsequently became Bepco Australasia.
Business continued to grow and the Bepco-Tracpieces Group had served its purpose well to Wilshaw. So as the priority to Wilshaw was increasingly the special metals business a new chapter for Bepco was about to begin as Wilshaw decided to sell Bepco-Tracpieces in 1996. Additionally, shortly before this sale Jonathan Lea decided to leave the company to pursue other interests.
However it was not until January 1998 that Bepco-Tracpieces was eventually sold. The purchasers were the venture capitalists Stephen Black and Ian Williams who with external financing support created Tractiv Group and Tractiv Holdings.
Tractiv finally agreed to purchase Bepco-Tracpieces from Wilshaw and made immediate changes with the closure of Jenco International reducing the OEM part service previously offered. As a result of several changes John Bence, the original founder and still Chairman, left the company for retirement in March 1999.
Following a fire in March 2001, Bepco moved to rented premises in Camberley, Surrey and never returned to the head office in Farnborough. Bepco was then sold in October 2002 to new owners GIL Investments, another venture capitalist company.
Anthony Howat became the only operational executive and CEO of Bepco and in 2003 the operation moved from Camberley, Surrey to Hartlebury, Worcestershire, its current base. The focus returned to development of technical parts ranges for the major tractor brands but following a period of financial difficulties Bepco was again sold in 2007 to the GB Ricambi Group.
GB Ricambi, a specialist in Fiat and transmission parts, had a long history and understanding of the agricultural business and their aim was to distribute Fiat parts through the Bepco network.
However following further acquisitions and the financial challenges at the time, GB Ricambi decided to sell Bepco in 2011.
