“We are thrilled to transition our family business to the very capable hands of the Fisher team and I am excited to continue working and helping to grow the business,” said Glaser. “On behalf of the Glaser family, including my parents Tom and Jill, I would like to extend our utmost thanks and appreciation for all the effort and dedication that the BFCP team has put in over the past 46 years. We also thank our very loyal customers and vendor partners for the roles they’ve had in our success.”

      “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.
