Network’s W. Springfield buys Service Auto Parts
The Automotive Distribution Network’s West Springfield Auto Parts recently acquired the assets of Ansonia, Connecticut-based Service Auto Parts/ARP Warehouse.
“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,” says Mike Lambert, president of the Network.
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, says Michael 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.
the Automotive Distribution Network operates under the brands of Parts Plus, IAPA and Auto Pride.
