GERMANTOWN, Tenn. The Automotive Distribution Network continues to expand its Parts Plus Mexico footprint with the signing of OASA (Oxigeno y Acetileno S.A. de C.V.) into membership, according to Mike Lambert, president of the Network.
“The Parts Plus program tailored for markets in Mexico continues to be a growing success with the strong addition of OASA, our third Parts Plus Mexico member,” Lambert said. “A family-owned operation serving traditional 3-step jobbers as well as conducting significant retail business with the public, OASA is a large industrial supply and tool-and-equipment company, with their larger stores carrying auto parts. OASA adds more volume and greater name recognition as the Network continues to establish the Parts Plus Mexico brand.”
With headquarters in Mexicali, on the east side of Baja, California, OASA has 21 locations, including stores in Ensenada, Tecate, Rosarita, San Quintin, San Felilpe, Puerto Penasco and Hermosillo. OASA is a second-generation company owned and operated by four brothers: Alfonso, Alejandro, Jose Manuel and Ernesto Garcia.
“At a time of growing competition in the marketplace, partnering with Parts Plus Mexico will enable our company to add additional lines and carry more auto parts inventory at all locations as we expand this category,” said Ernesto, president of OASA. “As a Parts Plus Mexico member, we also plan to increase our retail business significantly.”
