The Automotive Distribution Network held its spring shareholder meeting in Dearborn, Mich., recently and explored future growth opportunities and the expanded role of its IT and marketing initiatives.
“This year’s meeting encompassed 28 round-table discussions and more than 300 one-on-one meetings with members and vendors that provided exceptional communication and networking opportunities,” says David Prater, president of the Network.
“The round-tables allowed our members to personally interact with staff and fellow business owners to exchange ideas and express opinions about the future direction of the Network. Additionally, the one-on-one vendor/member meetings were a great venue for discussing product line items, sales analysis and inventory updating.”
Parts Plus Mexico members also convened at the meeting along with three Mexico division vendors: WIX Mann Hummel MX, GRC Ride Control Mexicana and GMB. Blue Sage, our IT partner in Mexico also presented to the group.
“As we continue to expand the Parts Plus brand in Mexico, it is vital to our success to continue working on member compliance and participation. We have more than doubled our purchases since 2015 in Mexico and look forward to signing several prospects in the very near future,”
