Automotive Distribution Network Adds New Auto Pride, Parts Plus Members

GERMANTOWN, Tenn. – The Automotive Distribution Network (ADN) has added a new member under its Auto Pride brand, according to Mike Lambert, president of the Network.

State Automotive Warehouse, owned and founded by Robert Daly, has been in business for 30 years. The company has its headquarters in Providence, R.I., and operates its retail store under the Action Auto Parts name. Fred Pacheco, VP of operations, said, “I’m confident that the Auto Pride Network will provide us with the additional tools necessary to expand our market share.”

With this addition, the Auto Pride Network reaches a total of 66 members across North America with more than 200 distribution points.

The Network also added five new Parts Plus members. They are: South Bend, Ind.-based Hoffman Brothers; Teaneck, N.J.-based State Car & Truck Parts Warehouse; Los Angeles-based Auto Supply Co.; Automotive Hard Parts in Rockland, Mass.; and Fayetteville, N.C.’s Southeastern Automotive.

The Parts Plus Car Care Center program will enable Hoffman Brothers to offer service dealers full support in advertising, promotions, training and business management, said Butch Walsh, president of the South Bend WD.

“A year from now, we plan to have at least 50 fully identified Car Care Centers flying the Parts Plus banner, with more than 100 locations by the end of 2012,” Walsh said.

State Car & Truck Parts Warehouse joined the Network to strengthen its fleet accounts and to boost their retail and wholesale business with a more complete marketing program, according to company president Alan Gladstein.
With a hub store/main warehouse just south of downtown Los Angeles and three area satellite locations, Auto Supply Co. is poised to benefit from the Network’s I.T. solutions, marketing programs, national accounts and the group’s manufacturer partnerships, said David Scher, president of Auto Supply Co.

Headquartered in Rockland, Mass., with six other locations in the state, Automotive Hard Parts joined the Network to build upon its success as the top independent supplier in their market, said Craig Borr, who co-owns the business with his brother, Tom Borr.

The Network’s Parts Plus programs will enable Southeastern Automotive to continue the rapid expansion it has undergone in the past 12 months, said Brandon Harrell, president of the Fayetteville-based WD.
