"We are excited to add IMC to the Parts Authority platform. This acquisition is an expansion of our product offerings, customer touch points and geographies. The Company’s leadership in European replacement parts is a logical fit with Parts Authority’s current catalog," said Randy Buller President & CEO of Parts Authority. "We believe the expanded inventory depth of the combined organization will significantly benefit both IMC’s existing customer base as well as Parts Authority’s customers. In addition, the IMC footprint expands Parts Authority into key new geographies of Florida, Texas, Northern California and the Pacific Northwest. As with any acquisition, we are most excited about bringing on great people. IMC’s management team and team members will add tremendous value to our organization and we are excited to welcome them into the Parts Authority family.”

“Parts Authority’s culture of customer service, operational excellence and integrity combined with IMC's leadership in selling to the import segment creates an exciting growth platform”, said Kelly Mundt VP of Corporate Strategy of IMC. “This is a fantastic home for our team members”, she continued.

“While we believe IMC is a valuable asset and a leader in European and Asian branded replacement parts, the sale of IMC will allow AutoZone to focus on our core business.,” said Bill Rhodes AutoZone’s Chairman, President and CEO. ”We believe IMC will be better suited to a different ownership structure where they will get the time, attention and investments necessary to optimize their business model.”

Jefferies LLC acted as sole financial advisor to AutoZone in the proposed sale of Interamerican Motor Corporation.

      TNT Parts announced that it has added Lithonia, Georgia-based D&J Supply Inc. to its team through an acquisition.
      As a family-owned/-operated business for more than 45 years in east Atlanta, D&J brings a wealth of knowledge in the aftermarket heavy-duty truck-parts industry combined with a talented team delivering exceptional customer service.
      “We are thrilled to have a company of the quality of D&J join TNT Parts,” said Dale Herold, CEO of Tidewater Fleet Supply/TNT Parts. “Our continued goal is to be the customer’s first choice as the best provider for their heavy-duty truck and trailer and equipment parts needs. We are committed to exploring new ways to better serve our customers today and in the future. Partnering with D&J allows us to increase the number of customers we can reach and also positions us to take care of their other aftermarket parts needs.”  
      In a press release, Jeff Schubach and Dan Schubach, presidents of D&J Supply Inc., said: “We chose to join Tidewater Fleet Supply/TNT Parts because of their company culture. How they care for their employees and how they care for their customers was a perfect fit for us.”
      D&J Supply joining TNT Parts brings together two highly rated, honest and reputable local companies that care, and are perfectly positioned to support the needs of truck fleets and individual operators and repair shops in the Atlanta metro area, TNT added. Both companies are, and remain, part of VIPAR Heavy Duty, North America’s leading network of independent aftermarket truck-parts distributors.
      Hart Marx Advisors facilitated the acquisition. The financial terms of the purchase were not disclosed.

      Advance Auto Parts announced it has opened 22 new stores in the Los Angeles market as part of the company’s broader strategic expansion into the Western United States. 
      In spring 2021, Advance announced its plan to expand into California by leasing 109 Pep Boys stores and converting them to Advance stores, more than half of which are in the Los Angeles area. 
      “We estimate that 70% of our customers in Los Angeles fit the profile of the classic do-it-yourselfer. Pairing that with the more than 7.6 million registered vehicles in Los Angeles’ unique car culture, this is a tremendous opportunity for Advance to bring care and speed to motorists through expert advice and best-in-class products and services,” said Tom Greco, president and chief executive officer of Advance. “Our timing couldn’t be better as the average vehicle age increases while used car and gasoline prices are rising, resulting in greater demand for vehicle maintenance.”
      Vehicle owners in Los Angeles and other parts of the West will gain access to everything Advance stores offer, such as free curbside and in-store pickup within 30 minutes of ordering online, as well as some of the most trusted automotive brands in the world, including DieHard, the company noted. In response to the emerging popularity of hybrid and electric cars, Advance last month introduced the DieHard EV battery – the first-to-market 12-volt battery designed specifically for hybrid and electric vehicles and sold exclusively at Advance.
      Advance also will support local communities and professional technicians across California by employing approximately 1,850 team members in the state when all 109 stores are converted, including staffing the company’s newly opened 45,000-square-foot “super hub” flagship location, centrally located off the 10 and 110 freeways in the Pico Union neighborhood near downtown Los Angeles. 
      With a growing need to service the approximately 14 million registered vehicles in California, including an increased number of electric and hybrid vehicles, Advance also brings the ability for professional repair partners to expand their technical knowledge with virtual and in-person training opportunities, available through Carquest Technical Institute and Worldpac Training Institute, which are developed and taught by factory-trained instructors and available to automotive technicians nationwide, Advance noted.
