Fisher Auto Parts has acquired Allied Auto Parts, with 13 locations in Massachusetts and two locations in Rhode Island.
“The primary rationale for selecting Fisher Auto Parts was the cultural fit of our two organizations. We operate in similar styles and share compatible philosophies,” said David Reid, SVP and COO of Fisher, and Michael Borr, president of Allied. “Colleagues who have been acquired by Fisher have spoken very highly of them, especially about their commitment to their employees. Fisher will help us compete with the larger players who continue to force out smaller players through economies of scale, purchasing power, vendor influence, technology and a skilled, specialized workforce.”
Borr will stay on following the acquisition to continue to help grow the business.
Since 1955, Allied Auto Parts has supplied the highest-quality auto parts and paint products, along with professional service and competitive pricing, to automotive professionals and do-it-yourselfers. The company started out with stores in Dorchester and Norwood, Massachusetts, and has grown to 16 locations.
With a motto of “Everything Automotive,” Allied Auto Parts and its parent company, Norwood Motor Parts, celebrated their 65th anniversary in 2020.
