Arnold Motor Supply has purchased the Central Parts and Machine and its two stores in Central Nebraska.
Central Parts and Machine has been in business since 1963, with locations in Columbus and Albion, Nebraska. “As I began to look towards the future, I realized that we needed to formalize a plan to ensure that our customers are taken care of today and in the future,” says previous owner, Al Kluever. “Arnold Motor Supply has the same dedication to customer service that we do."
“We are expanding our family of stores and are thrilled to have the current Central Parts team members be a part of it,” says Mike Molle, vice president of Store Operations. The same team that the Columbus and Albion communities have relied on for the last several decades will stay on, including Kluever who will run the machine shop operations at the Columbus location.
The Central Parts and Machine stores will be rebranded to Arnold Motor Supply, joining more than 60 other locations throughout the Midwest. In addition to the rebrand, the stores’ inventory is expanding with replacement parts from national brands like Bosch, Deka batteries, and Perfect Stop brakes and high-carbon rotors.
