XPart, the company which owns and operates the entire spare parts business for MG Rover business has thrown a lifeline to suppliers struggling to cope with the carmaker's collapse.
The firm, which was sold by Phoenix to Caterpiller last year, said it would continue to source parts from component makers for the foreseeable future.
With 3.5 million Rover cars on the road around the world, XPart chairman John Parkinson said there was likely to be work for at least ten more years and possibly more.
Further work could come from a number of independent warranties being offered by XPart in conjunction with MG Rover dealers to replace the guarantees which lapsed when the carmaker collapsed.
XPart chairman John Parkinson said: "With £40 million of parts in our warehouse, and strong ongoing partnerships with the 800 companies that supply parts for MG Rover models, we are in an excellent position to maintain uninterrupted supply to MG Rover dealers worldwide.
"Some firms have decided they do not want to make MG Rover parts any more, but we are moving to source the products from other suppliers.
"That is something we have done for the last ten to 20 years, when suppliers change, get bought, go bust or even suffer fires. A changing supplier base is something we have to manage but is something we have done in the past."
Mr Parkinson said there was unlikely to be any problem with tooling for Rover parts if and when company was bought following uncertainty about what exactly has been sold to Chinese carmaker Shanghai Automotive (SAIC).
He said: "The tooling for all the non current cars is ours, while the rights to use tooling for the current models is enshrined in our agreement with MG Rover.
"This preceded the deal with SAIC to sell the intellectual property, and we are in touch with SAIC and do not envisage any problems around the current product tooling.
"We will continue to supply parts for MG Rovers because it is a good commercial opportunity for us and a number of other firms.
"There are quite a few vehicles still in service, around 2.5 million in the UK, and 3.5 million around the world.
"There are Rovers in Japan and quite a few in Spain, France and Italy."
Even if production of Rover cars was to begin in China or another country, UK component manufacturers could still be able to supply pats through XPart, Mr Parkinson added.
"If new Rovers were made in China, if they were then exported to Europe we could provide after sales parts, but also if they were over there.
"We have 70 importers around the world, so we can supply parts into China. We supply to Australia, and that is not as far as China."
Mr Parkinson said he expected the Rover parts business to continue for some time.
"We will provide parts for vehicles for up to ten years after they cease production and then for as long as it provides a commercial opportunity .
"MG Rover made some good cars which will be on the road for some time to come.
"For the people who were totally dependent on providing parts for MG Rover it will be more difficult.
"Although the after-market is always smaller than for production, but this may be able to help some of the smaller companies."
