Parts Authority Adds 5 New Locations

The parts distributor expands to New England and Utah with its latest acquisitions.

Parts Authority, one of the largest distributors of automotive and truck parts in the aftermarket, added five new locations last month.

On July 31, Parts Authority expanded its footprint to New England with the acquisition of Barrco Auto Parts, located in Springfield, Massachusetts. Barrco has been locally serving the Northeast since 1976 and has been a loyal Pronto members since 1985.

“Barrco’s experienced team will continue to provide customers with their expert product knowledge and customer care that was developed and refined while being in business for over 40 years,” Parts Authority said in a news release.

On Aug. 22, Parts Authority expanded its footprint to Utah with the acquisition of ASAP Automotive Warehouse. ASAP has been in business since 1964 and operates out of four locations throughout Utah, and will play a key role in Parts Authority’s continuous Western expansion, the company said.

Barrco Auto Parts and ASAP Automotive Warehouse have been committed to providing outstanding customer service and quality parts over a long period of time and both companies will play a pivotal role for Parts Authority in its continued geographic expansion strategy, the company noted.

“We are incredibly fortunate to have added two great companies to the Parts Authority Family,” Parts Authority CEO Randy Buller said. “Jake and Paul Barr have been Pronto members for more than 30 years, they have the exact same values as Parts Authority, and we are looking to build a brand together in New England.

“Likewise, Scott and Kelly Peterson bring incredible professionalism and the know-how to the two-step distribution business in Utah. They are simply the best in class and have been for a number of years. We look forward to expanding our footprint in this region.”
