To use the new functionality, visitors to DormanProducts.com can search for a product using either vehicle year, make and model; keywords; VIN; OE number; or visual-hardware drilldown.

Fisher Auto Parts has acquired Allied Auto Parts, with 13 locations in Massachusetts and two locations in Rhode Island.
“The primary rationale for selecting Fisher Auto Parts was the cultural fit of our two organizations. We operate in similar styles and share compatible philosophies,” said David Reid, SVP and COO of Fisher, and Michael Borr, president of Allied. “Colleagues who have been acquired by Fisher have spoken very highly of them, especially about their commitment to their employees.
