The Automotive Distribution Network has added two Auto Pride members in New York City: Brooklyn-based South Shore Auto Parts and Long Island City’s E&Y Distributors Inc.
“The Network is proud to welcome aboard these two thriving, New York family-owned businesses whose commitment to outstanding service and customer relationships complements Auto Pride’s mission very well,” says Cora Roark, the group’s director of Auto Pride.
South Shore Owner Lou Cretella says his company will leverage the Network’s relationships with its manufacturer strategic partners and the group’s innovative information technology solutions to add top name-brand parts to their inventory and better serve their customer base. His sons, Louis Jr., Andrew and Christopher, rotate as general managers at each of South Shore’s locations that serve customers throughout Queens, Long Island and Staten Island,
The Network says E&Y Founder and President Yoav Agayev built his business from scratch in the early 1990s, outhustling his competitors to earn the business of New York’s recession-proof fleets, garages and companies leasing yellow-cab medallion taxis. Today, E&Y’s 50 employees work together to make more than 100 daily deliveries out of its 30,000-square-foot warehouse in Long Island City.
Operating under the brands of Parts Plus, Parts Plus Mexico, IAPA and Auto Pride, the Automotive Distribution Network program group is a member of Nexus North America and Nexus Automotive International, a worldwide group of parts distributors.
