With a focus on the wholesale auto parts market, Distribuidora De Autopartes Pescador S.A. (DAPESA) serves a vast majority of Mexico from four main warehouses totaling more than 305,000 square feet.

The Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance recently welcomed its newest Auto Value shareholder owner, Distribuidora De Autopartes Pescador S.A. (DAPESA).

Founded in 1995 and headquartered in San Rafael, Mexico, DAPESA is operated by brothers Daniel and Domingo Pescador. With a focus on the wholesale auto parts market, DAPESA serves a vast majority of Mexico from four main warehouses totaling more than 305,000 square feet, according to the Alliance.

“We are excited to welcome DAPESA to the Alliance family,” said John R. Washbish, president and CEO of the Alliance. “DAPESA’s excellent coverage and service of the market, along with our current shareholder owners in Mexico, put the Alliance in a position of strong growth and success for years to come.”

DAPESA serves more than 15,000 independently owned auto parts stores, shipping 1,400 orders daily via its own company vehicles and third-party shipping services. DAPESA is able to provide excellent customer service through its 185-person outside salesforce. In addition to the feet on the street, DAPESA boasts more than 600 employees.

The headquarters for DAPESA is in Veracruz and includes a 100,000-square-foot facility. The other main distribution locations are in Leon, Guanajuato and Monterrey. Established in 1995, 2007, 2012 and 2016, respectfully, these four distribution facilities enable DAPESA to have a large geographic footprint. DAPESA plans to grow as an organization via new locations in 2019.

DAPESA’s membership in the Alliance, which became effective on Jan. 1, “further establishes the Alliance as the program-group leader in Mexico and Central America,” the Alliance said in a news release.
