The Automotive Distribution Network’s West Springfield Auto Parts recently acquired the assets of Ansonia, Conn.-based Service Auto Parts/ARP Warehouse, according to Mike Lambert, president of the Network.
“This is a win-win for West Springfield Auto Parts and the Network as the company continues to extend its reach and the Parts Plus brand throughout Southern New England,” Lambert said.
A Parts Plus member since 2003, West Springfield Auto Parts now has nine locations serving the area, including its 100,000-square-foot corporate headquarters at the Crossroads of New England in West Springfield, Mass. The warehouse distributor’s acquisition of Service Auto Parts, a locally owned business since 1929, fills a gap in its Connecticut coverage, said Michael A. Creanza, owner of West Springfield Auto Parts.
“Specifically, the acquisition of Service Auto Parts will enable us to service the Naugatuck Valley, as we continue to grow our market share and geography,” he said.
Operating under the brands of Parts Plus, IAPA, and Auto Pride, the Automotive Distribution Network is one of the largest, most diverse program groups in the industry.
