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.

Lumileds recently introduced the new Philips GoPure GP5212, a powerful, compact and innovative car air purifier that can quickly remove up to 100 different types of pollutants and neutralize unpleasant odors in a vehicle.
GoPure GP5212 uses a special three-layer filter technology to quickly deliver clean, fresh air in minutes, according to the company, and its extremely compact and portable design makes it easy to use anywhere in the vehicle.
Unlike other filters that simply remove odors, the Philips SelectFilter Plus technology quickly and effectively filters out small particles, viruses, bacteria, pollen and toxic gases, according to the company.
The first stage is a pre-filter designed to capture large particles such as pet hair, dust and airborne dirt. The second layer features a HESA (high-efficiency sorbent agent) filter that scrubs out toxic gases and harmful chemicals and uses a powerful absorption and oxidation process to remove smoke, odors and gases.
The final layer employs a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter that remove over 99% of airborne bacteria and virus in a laboratory. It also captures ultra-fine particles, as small as 0.015 microns, that can get deep into the lungs that may cause health issues.
The Philips GoPure GP5212’s exceptional clean-air delivery rate (CADR) of 16 m3/hour for particulate matter down to 2.5 microns (PM2.5) makes it an ideal solution for protecting drivers and passengers from harmful particles in the vehicle cabin, according to Lumileds. GoPure GP5212 can filter 50% of interior air in a standard sedan or SUV in just 10 minutes.
GoPure GP5212’s advanced filter technology decontaminates the vehicle’s interior environment by removing harmful NO2/SO2 fumes and toxic gases from road traffic brought into the vehicle by cabin fans and ventilation. By treating nitrogen dioxide (NO2) at a CADR of 13 m3 per hour and sulphur dioxide (SO2) at 7.9 m3 per hour, the GoPure GP5212 reduces the exposure to dangerous levels of air pollution that can be much higher inside the car than outside.
“The new Phillips GoPure GP5212 car air purifier comes into our automotive marketplace at a very opportune time,” noted Aubry Baugh, product marketing manager. “In light of current pandemic conditions, air pollution and overall air quality, as well as a greater awareness of healthy living and well-being, most motorists and their passengers are keenly aware of the need for fresh, clean air in their vehicles. Our advanced GoPure GP5212 helps deliver that healthy air, so our customers can drive comfortably and breathe easier.”
The Philips GoPure GP5212 is designed to operate automatically, so the driver can focus on operating the vehicle. When plugged into the vehicle’s auxiliary power outlet, the unit turns on and off with the vehicle’s ignition. The GoPure GP5212 two-speed fan can be easily adjusted by the power button. An indicator light signals the need for a filter replacement.
The GoPure GP5212 has a compact and lightweight footprint of only 7 inches by 7 inches by 2.7 inches, and 1.7 pounds. This allows for easy and convenient installation anywhere in the vehicle.
GoPure GP5212 comes complete with a hook fastener, armrest and headrest attachment belt, and a 12-foot 12-volt power cable.
