Repairify Buys BlueDriver Scan Tools and Services
Repairify Inc., dba as asTech, a portfolio company of Kinderhook Industries LLC, has acquired Root Four Imagination Inc. (BlueDriver).
BlueDriver is a leading provider of direct-to-consumer aftermarket diagnostic scan tools and services.
The BlueDriver diagnostic tool is able to match a vehicle’s make, model and trouble code to a specific fix from a repair database that has been verified by professional automotive technicians. Once the proper fix is identified, customers can order parts online within the BlueDriver application along with clearing diagnostic trouble codes upon completion of the repair. AsTech is now the only company in the world that has both aftermarket/quick-scan and full OEM diagnostic scanning and calibration capabilities, reports the company.
“BlueDriver is a highly strategic acquisition and allows asTech to augment its service offering with aftermarket diagnostic capabilities,” says Paul Cifelli, managing director of Kinderhook Industries. “The addition will assist asTech in executing on its global multi-tier tool strategy and expand its offering in the automotive repair ecosystem into mechanical, whole auction, fleet, retail and eCommerce markets.”
“Repairify is thrilled to welcome Maurice Tuff, who will be joining Repairify as our chief technology officer,” says Cris Hollingsworth, president of Repairify. “AsTech has always remained committed to providing customers with accurate diagnostic services and the BlueDriver tool offers our customers a quality, trusted and easy-to- use diagnostic solution. AsTech believes there will continue to be strong demand for aftermarket diagnostic solutions and is confident that the integration of BlueDriver will further enable us to provide our customers with a one-stop-shop for vehicle diagnostic, calibration, and remote programming services.”
