GERMANTOWN, Tenn. – The Automotive Distribution Network continues to expand throughout North America with the recent signing of Toronto, Ontario-based Avenue Motor Works, Inc. into membership under the Auto Pride brand.
“Avenue Motor Works is a first-rate, family-owned operation and a welcome addition to the Network as an Auto Pride member,” says Cora Roark, director of Auto Pride. “This latest signing extends the Auto Pride footprint through upper Toronto and the surrounding areas.”
Founded with a single location in Toronto in 1993 by John Bosschaert, president, Avenue Motor Works has since expanded to more than 40,000 square feet of warehouse space with its six distribution and retail locations in Barrie, Bradford, Newmarket, Orangeville, Stouffville and Woodbridge, Ontario.
As a new Auto Pride member, Avenue Motor Works plans to utilize the Network’s buying power to further enhance its inventory and overall customer service as part of the company’s commitment to provide the right part, at the right time, at the right price.
“Together with Auto Pride, Avenue Motor Products will be adding several high-quality, prominent lines from the United States in the near future as we continue to expand and strive to provide superior service,” says Deanna Bosschaert-Gruhl, CFO and manager of promotions/special events. “Auto Pride and the Network have an excellent reputation as a buying group, and we’re looking forward to years of success together.”
Operating under the brands of Parts Plus, Parts Plus Mexico, IAPA and Auto Pride, the Automotive Distribution Network is one of the largest, most diverse program groups in the industry.
