The Automotive Distribution Network has extended its North American footprint with the signing of three new Auto Pride member warehouses: Auto Specialist, Vista, Calif.; Discount Auto Warehouse, Chicago; and T&T Parts, Maple Ridge, B.C.
“These three members will be fine representatives of the Auto Pride brand as the Network continues to expand into major markets, from Southern California to Chicago to British Columbia,” says Mike Lambert, president of the Network. “All three companies have expressed interest in growing their customer base by utilizing the Network’s purchasing power, IT initiatives and marketing support as well as the Network Products co-op warehouse.”
Auto Pride’s latest signings reflect the Network’s ongoing commitment to signing the right fits for the brand, according to Cora Roark, director of Auto Pride. “Auto Specialist, Discount Auto Warehouse and T&T Parts are valuable additions to the Network’s Auto Pride division, where the niche parts distributor is just as important as the full-line warehouse,” Roark says.
Operating under the brands of Parts Plus, Parts Plus Mexico, IAPA and Auto Pride, the Automotive Distribution Network is one of the largest program groups in the industry.
