Recommended Posts

Hahn Automotive Warehouse and Carparts Distribution Center have signed a definitive agreement for Hahn to acquire Carparts.

Rochester, New York-based Hahn and Plaistow, New Hampshire-based Carparts are members of the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance.

Terms of the transaction, which is expected to close on or about Dec. 27, were not disclosed. Stan Lewis, president of Carparts, will continue with the company following the completion of the transaction.

Hahn decided to acquire Carparts based on Carparts’ performance as a well-managed company with a commitment to growth and customer service in the New England market.

“I am thrilled our family business is going from my family to another family business,” said Maggie Maleno, a long-time shareholder of Carparts. “It was important for my employees to have a welcoming place to work.”

Lewis added: “We are extremely pleased to be joining Hahn to continue with the business of the combined Hahn/Carparts entity. This combination provides significant opportunities for growth for our customers, including enhanced sales and marketing efforts throughout the New England area.”

      Arnold Motor Supply recently purchased Sioux City, Iowa-based Motor Parts Central and its sister company Northern Auto Parts.
      The purchase will allow the company to expand its inventory and distribution in the region.
      “The move from our old location in Sioux City to the Motor Parts Central building increases our retail and distribution space by 130,000 square feet,” says Eric Johnson, president and managing partner for Arnold Motor Supply. “The Sioux City location will now serve as a distribution hub for our surrounding parts stores.”
      Northern Auto Parts will continue to operate within the same building and is a different type of expansion for the company. Northern is a national online retailer, specializing in engine-rebuild kits and engine parts.
      “For years, we’ve provided engine rebuilding and restoration through our machine shops, so adding the expertise of the Northern Auto Parts team is a great addition for our customers,” Johnson said.

      A leading automotive tool and equipment distributor wanted to make it easier for shop owners, professional technicians and do-it-yourselfers to get the vehicle service equipment and tools they need quickly.
      The result is Wrenchers, a reimagined and rebranded version of the company formerly known as Garage Equipment Supply.
      The new Wrenchers offers more than 12,000 items from leading tool and equipment brands, plus access to more than 50,000 specialty items online at

The expanded lineup includes an array of high-quality lifting systems, specialty tools and equipment solutions including service lifts and parking systems, hand and power tools, tool storage, vehicle diagnostics and various shop essentials, such as wheel service and collision repair equipment. 
      In addition to changing its branding and bolstering its product lines, Wrenchers has relocated from California to a large corporate office and distribution center in Theodore, Alabama. The new location helps Wrenchers deliver products quicker than any other warehouse distributor, according to the company, reaching 98% of the United States with free shipping via LTL trucking, flatbed service or FedEx within one to five days from the time the order is placed. 
      “Not long after we launched in 1996, customers started asking us to offer even more equipment,” said Marco Ortiz, director of factory sales.“Wequickly expanded to include tire changers, wheel balancers, alignment and front-end tools, among others. More than 25 years later, we now serve every facet of the vehicle-maintenance marketplace. With our new website, distribution center and other enhancements, we can offer our more than 350,000 customers more choices, faster delivery, and even better service.” 
       Wrenchers markets its products through multiple distribution sales channels, including retail, e-commerce and independent specialty tool dealers throughout the United States and Canada.
      The company also supports its customers with financing options and an extensive field service network of Wrenchers TechMate reps. These specialists demonstrate, install, set up and service shop equipment systems.

      O’Reilly Automotive has begun construction of its first distribution center in Mexico, company executives announced.
      The company’s first “O’Reilly-prototype” DC, located in Guadalajara, will boast a footprint of approximately 370,000 square feet, according to O’Reilly COO Brad Beckham.
      Beckham noted that O’Reilly is “targeting a completion date of the first half of 2023.”
      “This new facility will have the ability to provide company-store and jobber distribution to the Guadalajara metro area and support growth in the surrounding region,” Beckham explained during the company’s April 28 conference call. “Our distribution teams are well-seasoned in the design, planning and construction of new facilities, and we have been very pleased with our progress in working with our leadership team in Mexico to get this project rolling in true O’Reilly fashion.”
      Company leaders “continue to be excited about the growth opportunities we see in the Mexican automotive aftermarket,” Beckham added.
      In late 2019, O’Reilly acquired Guadalajara-based Mayasa Auto Parts, the company’s first foray into the Mexican aftermarket. At the time of the acquisition, Maya operated five distribution centers supporting 20 Orma Autopartes stores and more than 2,000 independent jobbers throughout Mexico.
      O’Reilly CEO Greg Johnson said the company’s strategy in Mexico mirrors its strategy in the United States, and company leaders are “happy with our progress in Mexico.”
      “We want to make sure we’ve got the supply chain infrastructure in place before we really ramp up our store growth at a more aggressive pace, because we want that customer experience to be what it’s going to be long-term,” Johnson explained. “And we want that service level from our DC for our professional customers to be at the very highest level from Day 1. So we’re growing the market incrementally.”
      As part of its strategy, O’Reilly will continue to operate under the Mayasa/Orma brand, at least for now, according to Johnson.
      “We’ll transition [to O’Reilly] over time,” Johnson added.
      Asked about the growth potential in the Mexican aftermarket, Johnson referenced “one of our major competitors” – AutoZone – which had 669 stores in Mexico as of Feb. 12.
      Johnson concluded: “We feel like there’s a pretty big opportunity to grow our store count somewhere in that range in Mexico as well.”
