B&L Auto Parts and Paint has served the Maine area for more than 47 years.

“Parts Authority is a fast-growing, innovative automotive parts distribution business leader,” said Gerald Doane, owner of B&L Auto Parts and Paint. “Their unmatched parts availability and customer-driven values align with B&L’s, creating synergy. The B&L team will significantly benefit from joining a company that respects and fosters the growth of its team members.”

“Gerald and the team at B&L have been committed to providing customers with the best parts and customer service possible,” said Randy Buller, president, and CEO of Parts Authority. “This is an amazing opportunity as we expand Parts Authority into new territory. I want to welcome all the talented people at B&L to the team!”
