New York’s Big City Acquires Fellow Network Member All Parts Distributors

The sale came about through Big City President and CEO Kenny Maurer's working relationship over the years with Ron Brody, outgoing president of All Parts Distributors and a founding member and former chairman of the Network's Auto Pride brand.

GERMANTOWN, Tenn. — New York-based Big City Automotive continues its expansion into New Jersey with the acquisition of All Parts Distributors, d.b.a. Associated Auto Parts, a fellow Automotive Distribution Network member located in Linden, N.J., said Kenny Maurer, president and CEO of Big City.

“The acquisition of Associated Auto Parts is a tremendous opportunity for Big City to make our presence known in New Jersey on a much larger scale after buying our first store in the state last year,” said Maurer, who also serves as the Network’s chairman. “The 52,000-square-foot main warehouse in Linden and three additional satellite locations in Edison, North Plainfield, and Berkeley Heights will help Big City expand throughout northern New Jersey.”

The sale came about through Maurer’s working relationship over the years with Ron Brody, outgoing president of All Parts Distributors and a founding member and former chairman of the Network’s Auto Pride brand.

“I was the negotiator for the Network when Auto Pride merged with the group, so I’ve known Ron and of his company for a long time,” Maurer said. “For more than four decades, Associated has been a great operation with great people. We plan to build upon their excellent reputation of providing the absolute best parts and service in New Jersey.”
