The Automotive Distribution Network has extended the Auto Pride brand nationwide with the signings of NFADA Warehouse based in Williamsville, N.Y., and Parts Pro Automotive Warehouse in Del Rey Beach, Fla.
“As the Network expands in regions primed for growth, these two new Auto Pride members reflect the group’s commitment to signing likeminded companies in the Northeast and in the South,” says Cora Roark, director of Auto Pride. “NFADA and Parts Pro are companies on the move, with the need to expand their product lines and enhance their excellent customer service.”
The Network will ensure NFADA can provide their customers with lines the company couldn’t buy direct previously, says Paul Dubickas, vice president/general manager of NFADA. “Our Network relationship is already helping our company stock forward lifts and compressor Line products, and we plan to add several more,” he says. “The Network is a great partner.”
Every program group has parts and marketing programs, but it’s the people at the Network who most impressed John Laird, owner and president of Parts Pro.
“I feel the staff at the Network will work to expand our product lines beyond high replacement maintenance parts like filters, belts, brakes, rotors, calipers and chemicals,” he says. “The group’s people impressed me with their knowledge of part numbers, pricing and the right strategies for getting the best deal possible.”
Operating under the brands of Parts Plus, Parts Plus Mexico, IAPA and Auto Pride, the Automotive Distribution Network is one of the largest, most diverse program groups in the industry.
