The Parts House acquires Florida distributor

Posted on February 12, 2014

The Parts House LLLP (TPH) has acquired the aftermarket assets of Tampa-based Florida Automotive Distributing (FAD) from the Suburban Florida Accessory Center LLC of Troy, Michigan.

“FAD’s wide, varied customer base complements TPH’s existing geographic footprint, while the additional locations gained as part of the acquisition will help enhance service in several of our company’s existing key markets,” says David Honig, president and CEO of TPH.

“TPH’s established team will also benefit from the addition of FAD’s experienced associates, which will lead to even greater service to our Parts Plus Car Care Center locations and AC Delco Professional Service Centers.”

THP is a Jacksonville-based Parts Plus member of the Network. TPH will distribute its complete product offering to FAD customers while continuing to support some of FAD’s key lines. Specifically, TPH plans to extend FAD’s chemical and lubricant program throughout the company.

TPH will also maintain former FAD locations in Tampa, St. Petersburg, Winter Haven and Ft. Myers, servicing those stores from its Jacksonville and Largo distribution centers.

THP distributes automotive and heavy-duty truck parts and accessories in the southeastern United States and Caribbean. For more information, visit www.thepartshouse.com.
