Auto. Dist. Network expands south of the border

Posted on January 24, 2014

The Automotive Distribution Network has already signed two companies to the group’s new Parts Plus Mexico program, Grupo Esquivel Autopartes S.A. de C.V. and Mayoreo Automotriz Franco S.A. de C.V. (MAFRA), according to Mike Lambert, Network president.

“Coming off the heels of announcing last week’s addition of Grupo Esquivel Autopartes S.A. de C.V. to help kick off the Parts Plus Mexico program, we’re pleased that MAFRA will now be flying the Parts Plus banner in Mexico,” Lambert said.

“Formerly a successful member of our CMB division, MAFRA is yet another example of a business continuing to grow and expand under the Network umbrella.”

A traditional three-step warehouse, Grupo Esquivel Autopartes S.A. de C.V. operates 10 locations in major cities throughout Mexico: Aguascalientes, Monterrey, Guadalajara, Queretaro, Pachuca, Morelia, San Luis Potosi, Leon, Celaya, and Irapuato.

Based in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico, MAFRA is a third-generation business serving the traditional three-step market throughout the area.

Operating under the brands of Parts Plus, Parts Plus Mexico, IAPA and Auto Pride, the Automotive Distribution Network says it is one of the largest, most diverse program groups in the industry.
