Arnott, a Merritt Island, Florida-based manufacturer of air-suspension products for passenger vehicles, announced that it has acquired JRi Shocks. 

“The acquisition enables Arnott to expand its industry-leading air-suspension product portfolio within the SEMA performance market to reach additional customers including street cars, Jeep vehicles, trucks, motorcycles and UTVs,” Arnott said in a news release. “JRi Shocks will continue to serve its existing markets and customers, but now will be better-positioned to grow those markets even further while also expanding into new ones.”

Customers should see no change in the day-to-day operations of the business, Arnott added.

“Arnott has exceptional engineering capabilities and has a reputation for producing high-performance products,” said Joe Santangelo, CEO of Arnott. “AccuAir, added to the Arnott portfolio last year, provides the leading air-suspension management system on the market today. Bringing JRi Shocks into the fold enables Arnott to offer the best aftermarket replacement air suspension, the leading air-suspension management system as well as some of the best performance shocks in the world.”

JRi Shocks is well-known for its shock-absorber technology, which has a history of championship performance in various forms of motorsports. Founded in 2007 by Jeff Ryan, the company was co-owned by Ryan, Det Cullum and NASCAR Hall of Fame crew chief and team owner Ray Evernham at the time of the acquisition. Ryan will stay on to continue managing all engineering activities for the company, while Cullum and Evernham will remain involved with the company in advisory roles.

“The last few years we have focused on expanding our world class racing products, allowing more enthusiasts to experience JRi Shocks,” said Ryan, founder of JRi Shocks. “It was a natural progression of our expertise and now we will be able to take it even further under the Arnott umbrella.” 

“After three years of owning JRi, we arrived at a point where our growth potential was being held back by the resources we had at hand. We needed a partner to take the company to the next level,” said Evernham. “Arnott’s enthusiasm for what JRi stands for and its track record of leading companies to extraordinary growth made Arnott the perfect fit to become that partner. I look forward to continuing to support the company’s growth.”

      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. Fisher will help us compete with the larger players who continue to force out smaller players through economies of scale, purchasing power, vendor influence, technology and a skilled, specialized workforce.” 
      Borr will stay on following the acquisition to continue to help grow the business.
      Since 1955, Allied Auto Parts has supplied the highest-quality auto parts and paint products, along with professional service and competitive pricing, to automotive professionals and do-it-yourselfers. The company started out with stores in Dorchester and Norwood, Massachusetts, and has grown to 16 locations.
      With a motto of “Everything Automotive,” Allied Auto Parts and its parent company, Norwood Motor Parts, celebrated their 65th anniversary in 2020.

      Vast-Auto Distribution, a subsidiary of Groupe Del Vasto, has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire substantially all of the assets of Canadian Auto Parts Suppliers (C.A.P.S.).
      The parties expect the transaction to close on Nov. 30, subject to customary closing conditions. 
      Vast-Auto Distribution is a well-established distributor of automotive parts in Eastern Canada, and a shareholder of the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance.
      Over the course of its 22 years, Canadian Auto Parts Suppliers has established itself as a dominant parts wholesaler and retailer in Canada’s capital city of Ottawa. Founded in 1999 by Charles “Chuck” Berthiaume, C.A.P.S. has been committed to servicing both professional installers and do-it-yourself customers through a wide product assortment and an exceptionally qualified staff of auto parts specialists. 
      “I am delighted to have chosen to sell my business to Vast-Auto Distribution, which has clearly established itself as a leading Canadian distributor within the automotive aftermarket,” Berthiaume said. “With a view to the sustainability of the business, and after working in the automotive sector for most of my career, the decision to sell was not easy to take, but today, I know that this choice is the best for the future of C.A.P.S. and our loyal customers and employees.”
      The completion of this transaction plays a pivotal role for Vast-Auto Distribution in its continued market share expansion strategy in Eastern Canada. 
      “We are thrilled to welcome C.A.P.S. and all 60 of its team members and its entire customer base to Groupe Del Vasto,” said Mauro Cifelli, president and CEO of Groupe Del Vasto. “We are confident that our culture and our commitment to taking care of our customers and employees, will fit hand in glove with Canadian Auto Parts Suppliers longtime way of doing business. Moreover, we are extremely pleased to announce that Ghazi Mankal, a seasoned aftermarket business professional who has been with C.A.P.S. since the early beginning, will continue in his role as general manager and business associate, which will allow for a smooth transition.”
      This transaction will position C.A.P.S. to enhance its services and operational effectiveness through access to Vast-Auto’s robust supply chain, including its Ottawa distribution center, and leverage of its technology platforms.
