Mark and Mary Weaver, owners of Weaver Auto Parts, have sold their business to Automotive Parts Headquarters Inc. (APH).
St. Cloud, Minnesota-based APH is a third-generation family-owned auto parts distributor with 132 branch locations in six states. As a result of the deal, the Weavers’ 17 locations will be rebranded as Weaver Auto Value, bringing APH’s corporate store count to 149.
Weaver Auto Parts has been in business since 1972. Headquartered in Sauk City, the business began in Portage, Wisconsin, where they opened their first auto parts store. Nearly 50 years later, Weaver Auto Parts is still focused on providing exceptional customer service to auto repair professionals and serious DIYers throughout the region.
“As we looked at the future for our company, we recognized APH as a natural fit to continue our growth,” said Mark Weaver, president of Weaver Auto Parts. “The APH team has a strong culture, and we share the same values and focus on taking care of customers and employees. Additionally, the APH team has the experience and resources available to provide great opportunities for our team and great solutions for our customers.”
“We are honored and delighted that Mary and Mark have chosen to sell their business to APH, and to continue their strong tradition of quality products, knowledgeable employees and superior service,” commented Corey Bartlett, president and CEO of APH. “We are excited to enter these new markets and fortunate to be adding the Weaver team to the APH family.”
