NPW announced a continued expansion of its business with the acquisition of Jim’s Auto Parts.
Owned by Jim Arpin and located in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, Jim’s Auto Parts has been in business since 1962 and is the last of the Broward Group of stores that is now under NPW management. The Broward Group was the largest independent group of auto parts stores in South Florida, NPW says.
Jim’s Auto will continue to fly the Bumper to Bumper banner.
“We are glad to have Jim’s Auto Parts under the NPW umbrella. Our family has known, been friends with and worked closely with Jim for many years. We look forward to working with all the great people Jim has brought along and grow the business he started,” says Chris Pacey, NPW’s COO and executive vice president.
“After 60 years in business, you can imagine my concern with handing over my business,” says Jim Arpin. “I have worked with the Pacey’s and NPW for many years and I consider them a well-respected organization and like my company, is family owned and has family values. With their infrastructure and greater buying power, they will make sure that Jim’s Auto Parts will continue to be a part of and expectedly a bigger part of the auto parts business in South Florida.”
