"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.”

    • OEM vs. Aftermarket Parts for Your Car: How to Choose
      When selecting parts for a car repair, it pays to know the differences between original and aftermarket parts. Whenever possible, get estimates for both.

      Choosing between original and aftermarket car parts — and even used parts of either type — is all about squaring your priorities with your budget.

      You’ll have different options depending on the part and the shop. And the best choice will depend on whether you’re trying to keep repairs cheap, restore your car’s appearance after a wreck or soup up your ride.

      Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts match those that came with your car, and are of the same quality as its original parts. They’re also the most expensive.

    • Replacement Intervals For Oil And Air Filters In Today’s Vehicles
      The factory-recommended replacement intervals for filters can vary quite a bit depending on the year, make and model of the vehicle, as well as how it is driven. As a rule, older vehicles (those more than 15 to 20 years old) typically have more frequent service intervals than newer vehicles. Why? Because late-model vehicles require less maintenance, thanks to improvements in motor oils, transmission fluids, engine design and filter media.

      Many long-life air and oil filters use synthetic fiber media or a blend of cellulose and synthetic fibers to extend filter life.

      Changing the oil and filter every 3,000 miles was standard practice decades ago. But it’s no longer necessary because most multi-viscosity oils today are a synthetic blend or a full synthetic that resist viscosity breakdown and oxidation for a much longer period of time. Late-model fuel-injected engines also run much cleaner than their carbureted ancestors, which reduces oil contamination in the crankcase.
