Arnold Motor Supply Expands In Waterloo, Iowa


Recommended Posts

Arnold Motor Supply recently moved to a new location in Waterloo, Iowa.

The 19,500-square-foot facility provides improved retail space, expanded inventory and additional distribution capacity.

The move merges the Cedar Falls and Waterloo stores into a larger facility so the company can continue to support the growing aftermarket parts and supplies needs of its customers.

“The average age of vehicles on the road continues to rise, with industrywide shortages of new and used vehicles, amplifying the demand for replacement parts,” said Eric Johnson, president and managing partner at Arnold Motor Supply.

Adding a distribution hub in the Waterloo area will allow for better access to parts for Arnold’s area stores and, ultimately, the customer.

“Our customers don’t have time to wait,” Johnson said. “When they need a part, they typically need it right now.”

Arnold Motor Supply is excited to continue to serve the Cedar Falls and Waterloo communities at the 2710 Wagner Road location.

Arnold Motor Supply is a member of the Auto Value network of independent distributors, auto parts stores and professional service repair shops located throughout the world.

      Eric Johnson, president and managing partner of Arnold Motor Supply/The Merrill Company, is visiting Northwood University this week to meet with students enrolled in automotive aftermarket courses. 
      “Efforts to encourage and educate students are so valuable because not only are we helping individuals, we’re also helping to shape the future of our industry,” Johnson said. “Preparing students with the mindset, skills and knowledge they need to be successful contributes to the overall growth and innovation of the aftermarket.” 
      Johnson, a member of the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance board of directors, spoke with students enrolled in aftermarket category management, aftermarket management research and aftermarket manufacturing management, among others.
      “As a University of the Aftermarket graduate and supporter of Northwood University, Eric wanted to invest in the future leaders of the industry by sharing several real-life cases relevant to the aftermarket classes,” said Dr. Thomas Litzinger, executive director of the University of the Aftermarket/Northwood aftermarket industry chair.
      Students enrolled in aftermarket category management are prepared for the role of product manager through inventory-modeling techniques and data analysis. The aftermarket manufacturing management course explores the role manufacturers play in the aftermarket and what business functions they employ.
      Aftermarket management research teaches students research techniques to form a hypothesis and sample the data to reject or not reject the hypothesis.
      “Our students are eager to engage with industry leaders and learn from their expertise,” said James O’Dell, assistant director of aftermarket education. “This real-life industry experience sets Northwood students apart, makes them uniquely qualified and prepares them for success in their career.”
      The global market value of the aftermarket exceeds $400 billion. Northwood’s

Students in this program are fueled by their passions for cars, the aftermarket and turning this passion into a career someday.   “The program has nearly a 100% employment rate for all graduates in the program,” Northwood said in a news release. “Part of their success is because Northwood helps them engage in real-world experiences and network with industry leaders like Eric Johnson.”

      GB Reman announced the release of 17 gasoline-direct-injection (GDI) part numbers including GDI injectors, seal kits, fuel lines and a premium GDI seal-replacement tool kit.
      The additional part numbers enhance GB Reman’s remanufactured GDI program with added coverage for more than 2,300 unique vehicle applications and more than 24 million vehicles in operation.
      “We are very proud of this release, especially with the highly anticipated expansion of our industry-leading GDI program,” said Joe Evert, director of engineering & operations. “Our commitment to quality is the cornerstone of our GDI program’s popularity. We take great pride in delivering top-notch products, rigorously tested to ensure superior performance and backed by a stellar warranty for peace of mind. Our team of experts and our dedication to excellence sets us apart, making GB Reman the trusted choice for those who demand the best in performance, reliability and customer service.”
      GDI Fuel Injectors & Seal Kit
      GB Reman’s line of remanufactured fuel injectors are remanufactured using a proven 15-step process at its state-of-the-art facilities in Long Beach, California, according to the company.
      All injectors include new external seals, O-rings and filters. In addition, all GDI injectors include pre-installed combustion fuel-inlet seals and necessary hardware to ensure a complete and trouble-free installation.
      Once remanufactured, each injector is 100% tested under multiple operating conditions to ensure it meets or exceeds OEM specifications for flow rate, spray pattern, coil resistance, form, fit and function.

      link hidden, please login to view for a complete list of part numbers and application data. GDI Fuel Injector Multi-Packs
      GB Reman released two GDI fuel-injector multi-packs (PNs: 835-11156PK, 835-11158PK) covering 495 unique vehicle applications and more than 6 million vehicles in operation.
      Replacing GDI injectors in sets ensures balanced performance, consistent fuel atomization, and prevents drivability issues by maintaining uniformity across all cylinders. While it may involve a higher initial cost, replacing injectors in sets promotes cost-effectiveness in the long run by reducing the likelihood of future repairs and optimizing overall vehicle longevity.
      GDI Fuel Lines
      GB Reman released six GDI fuel lines (PNs: 892-001, 893-001, 893-002, 893-003, 895-001, 895-002) covering more than 1,000 unique vehicle applications and more than 9 million vehicles in operation.
      GDI fuel lines are responsible for delivering pressurized fuel from the fuel tank to the GDI injectors located near the combustion chamber of each cylinder. They play a crucial role in ensuring that the engine receives the right amount of fuel at the right pressure for efficient combustion. The fuel lines are designed to withstand the high operating pressures associated with GDI systems, which can be significantly higher than those in traditional port fuel-injection systems.
      Premium GDI Seal Tool Kit
      GB Reman released its new premium GDI seal tool kit (PN: GBTK-0001). The tool kit can be utilized to reseal more than 100 unique GDI injectors, covering more than 70 million vehicles in operation, according to the company.
      As part of any GDI injector replacement procedure, all injectors on the fuel rail must have their injector seals replaced. While replacing GDI combustion seals is not technically challenging, proper tools and procedures are necessary to ensure that the seals function properly. For
