Network signs Ark.-based Tri-State Enterprises

Posted on June 11, 2014

The Automotive Distribution Network recently announced the election of Fort Smith, Ark.-based Tri-State Enterprises Inc. into membership as a shareholder, said Mike Lambert, president of the Network.

“Formerly a CMB member under the Network umbrella, Tri-State has grown significantly over the last 18 months, as the company has expanded its hard-parts business while remaining a leading supplier of full-line truck accessories,” Lambert said.

Operating out of its 160,000 sq.-ft. main warehouse in Fort Smith and a 55,000 sq.-ft. satellite location in Little Rock, Tri-State delivers hard parts and truck accessories on the same trucks to customers in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Kansas City and Missouri.

The Network says it is a natural fit for Tri-State Enterprises, which has added three product lines in the last month, with plans to rapidly grow its hard-parts offering, said Tristan Taylor, general operations manager for Tri-State.

“Exceptional customer service has put Tri-State Enterprises on the map,” Taylor said.

“It’s our people who distinguish us from our competition. So when we decided to join a buying group, we looked at the people behind the programs. The Network has great people who are excellent to work with.”

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.
