CBK International Inc., a warehouse distributor based in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, has joined the Automotive Distribution Network as an Auto Pride member.
“CBK International is a fast-rising company that will be an excellent representative of the Auto Pride brand as the Network continues to extend its footprint into Canada,” said Mike Lambert, Network president. “I’m confident this new partnership will be mutually beneficial, enabling CBK to utilize the Network’s purchasing power, IT initiatives, and marketing support to continue to expand their customer base.”
Operating out of its 42,000-sq-ft main warehouse in Mississauga, CBK International currently serves approximately 100 jobber stores in Ontario and Quebec. CBK also has four cooperated jobber stores, along with 10 associate jobber locations.
The timing was right for CBK to join the Network as the company increases its number of product lines and continues its steady growth, said Roy Shen, vice president of CBK.
“As a member of the Network, CBK will add several product lines so we can serve as a better supply chain to support our customers,” Shen said. “CBK’s affiliation with the Network and the Auto Pride brand will not only strengthen confidence with our current jobbers but also enable us to grow our customer base.”
Operating under the brands of Parts Plus, Parts Plus Mexico, IAPA and Auto Pride, the Automotive Distribution Network is one of the largest, most diverse program groups in the industry.
