Network adds Volvo specialist
The Automotive Distribution Network has signed IPD USA, a Portland, Ore.-based manufacturer and supplier of components for Volvo brand automobiles.
“I’m pleased to welcome the country’s foremost Volvo specialists to the Network under the Auto Pride brand,” says Mike Lambert, president of the Network.
This most recent addition to Auto Pride reflects the brand’s ongoing plan to sign parts distributors with potential for growth, according to Cora Roark, director of Auto Pride.
“Auto Pride continues to sign niche warehouses that are an ideal fit for the brand,” Roark says. “The Network will be a strong ally as IPD expands and adds product lines.”
Since 1963, IPD has focused on OE and custom-made Volvo parts, including their own 4T4 ball-bearing turbocharger, shipping orders worldwide via their in-house online store.
“The Network’s relationships with top-tier vendors are second to none, so Auto Pride will be a great resource for us as we continue to push the boundaries of our Volvo business,” says Stuart Hockman, president of IPD USA.
“With the recent launch of our new subsidiary, WPD USA, the timing was right to join the Network as we are in the process of adding several import-car product lines, including Subaru, VW, Audi and Saab.”
The Automotive Distribution Network operates under the brands of Parts Plus, Parts Plus Mexico, IAPA and Auto Pride. For more information, contact Bob Barstow at (901) 682-9090.
