Founded in 1995 and headquartered in San Rafael, Mexico, DAPESA is operated by brothers Daniel and Domingo Pescador. With a focus on the wholesale auto parts market, DAPESA serves a majority of Mexico from four main warehouses totaling more than 305,000 square feet.
“We are excited to welcome DAPESA to the Alliance family,” said John Washbish, president and CEO at the Alliance. “DAPESA’s excellent coverage and service of the market along with our current shareholder owners in Mexico, put the Alliance in a position of strong growth and success for years to come.”
DAPESA serves over 15,000 independently owned auto parts stores, shipping 1,400 orders daily via its company vehicles and third party shipping services. DAPESA provides customer service through 185 outside sales people and has over 600 employees.

Established in 1995, 2007, 2012 and 2016, respectively, these four distribution facilities enable DAPESA to have a large geographic footprint.
