Tri-States will become a part of Little Rock, Arkansas-based PWI when the anticipated merger is completed in August.

“Tri-States is thrilled with this opportunity to join the Parts Warehouse team,” said Kelly Connolly, president of Marianna, Florida-based Tri-States. “This will allow us to operate bigger, stronger, faster and provide even better customer service with even more parts availability.”

Tri-States, which operates in Alabama, Florida and Georgia, will maintain its current company stores as well as its warehouse in Marianna. Combined, the two companies will serve nine states, including Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Texas.

“Our shared knowledge, resources and now-larger footprint will help us continue to grow and excel at what we do,” said Fletcher Lord III, PWI president. “We welcome Tri-States to the team, but more importantly, to our family of families.”

Both PWI and Tri-States are shareholder owners of the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance. The two companies have personal friendships and professional relationships stretching back decades.
