Eastern Warehouse Distributors and Parts Authority have purchased 11 Cal’s-National Auto Parts Supply locations in Central New Jersey.
Eastern Warehouse Distributors will retain eight of the locations as part of the ongoing growth of its wholesale aftermarket auto parts business. The remaining three will be retained by Parts Authority, one of the largest distributors of aftermarket automotive and truck parts throughout the United States.
“We are very pleased to expand our family of now 45 two-step operations in Eastern Pennsylvania and Central-Southern New Jersey,” said Steve Thorne, CEO of Eastern Warehouse Distributors, a member of the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance. “We welcome all the customers and employees of Cal’s-National by giving them our well-established commitment to excellence in our people, our products, our service and our programs.”
Randy Buller, CEO and president of Parts Authority, added: “We are excited to add National Parts Supply locations to the family. The stores add new coverage and enhance the Parts Authority family of brands in New Jersey. Our customers now have even more Parts Authority locations to find the parts they need, when they need them.”
Founded in 1938, National Auto Parts Supply grew to 11 locations under the leadership of three generations of the Salasko family.
“We are excited to become part of a growing and cutting-edge company that prides itself on providing the best customer service in the aftermarket,” said Bill Salasko, president of National Auto Parts Supply.
