National Auto Parts Warehouse Joins HDA Truck Pride With AJW Acquisition

AJW operates a 165,000-square-foot modern facility that serves more than 200 jobbers and 12 Southeast Auto Parts stores.

National Auto Parts Warehouse joins HDA Truck Pride with the acquisition of Associate Jobbers Warehouse (AJW) of Boaz, Alabama. AJW has been in business since 1955 and has been a long-standing member of HDA Truck Pride. AJW operates a 165,000 sq. ft. modern facility that serves more than 200 jobbers and 12 Southeast Auto Parts stores.

With the acquisition of AJW, National Auto Parts Warehouse now has a facility that services Alabama, Western Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Louisiana, South Carolina, Kentucky and Mississippi. The companies will be operating from 15 DCs in the US and Canada. Founded in 1969, National Auto Parts Warehouse now distributes over 700 lines and is a leader in marketing traditional, performance and truck accessories in North America.

National Auto Parts Warehouse is now another step closer in completing their geographic coverage. The acquisition allows NPW, AJW and HDA Truck Pride another means for growth, and continued service to the customer.

Larry Pacey, President and CEO of NPW offered these words; “This deal is our largest acquisition to date! Associate Jobbers gives us another step in completing our coverage of geography where we had gaps. We are closing in on having facilities in major population centers that allow us to have a same or next day delivery program that our customers desire. With the AJW acquisition, it also allows for our expansion into Commercial Vehicle.”

“We are excited for the NPW and AJW team and the new doors this acquisition opens for them. We look forward to working with the team as they continue to grow. We are very pleased to have such forward thinking and growth oriented members,” offers Tom Tecklenburg, CCO of HDATP.
