Motown Automotive Distributing (Motown) and Fisher Auto Parts (Fisher) have announced the acquisition of Motown by Fisher, effective today, Oct. 1.
Motown Automotive is a leading full-line undercar and underhood auto parts warehouse in southern Michigan, with more than 50 years of experience in the automotive marketplace. Family owned and operated, Motown has 13 locations in Ann Arbor, Brighton, Flint, Grand Rapids, Lansing, Plymouth, Southfield, Sterling Heights, Taylor, Troy, Waterford and two locations in Farmington Hills.
“We are very pleased to join forces with Fisher Auto Parts, the founding member of Federated Auto Parts,” said Jim Sechrist, president of Motown Automotive Distributing. “Our long history and association with the Fisher organization and the Federated program group made it the right decision to merge with them. Through Fisher, Motown will be able to provide even more product and service resources to our customers and give opportunities for our associates to expand their careers in the Fisher Auto Parts network.”
“The Sechrist family and their team of employees have built a premier aftermarket distribution business in Michigan of which we are proud to be adding to the Fisher Auto Parts company,” added Bo Fisher, CEO of Fisher Auto Parts. “Our missions and values align completely so that we will continue to provide all customers with the best overall value in the aftermarket while doing so with integrity and commitment to all, including every associate and vendor partner.”
Last May, Fisher announced the acquisition of 10 Hoffman Brothers company stores and a warehouse based in South Bend, Indiana, as part of an aggressive growth strategy. That was following up by the purchase of six World Auto Parts company stores based in Buffalo, New York, in September 2017.
Both Sechrist and Fisher express their gratitude to the executive teams of Motown Automotive Distributing and Fisher Auto Parts for their hard work in facilitating this transaction. A seamless transition is expected due to the dedication of both companies to serve their customers first.

Who else is seeing industry shortages and inflation issues causing price and availability issues on auto parts? Manufacturers are short staff, supplies, and materials.
