Automotive Distribution Network Expands Parts Plus Brand in Mexico

Oct. 2, 2018

The Automotive Distribution Network added its 10th Parts Plus Mexico member with the signing of Racing Autopartes based in Piedras Negras, Coahuila.

“Racing Autopartes lives up its name as it’s a thriving company on the move with 25 locations in the state of Coahuila,” says David Prater, Network president.

“Currently importing about 30% of their total purchases, Racing Autopartes joined the Parts Plus Mexico program looking to expand that number with the assistance of the Network’s strategic vendor partners, including Federal-Mogul, Tenneco, and more. I’m confident this growing company will earn even greater success under the Parts Plus Mexico banner.”

Led by president and CEO Armando Sanchez Ibarra, Racing Autopartes has its main warehouse and 12 company-owned locations in Piedras Negras, as well as five company stores in Acuña, three in Manantiales, two in Monclova, and one each in Region Carbonifera and Saltillo.

In addition to retail sales, Racing Autopartes also offers repair service and towing at several locations. Overall, this newest Parts Plus Mexico WD (wholesale distributor) has a 50/50 split of retail and wholesale business in the area, according to the Automotive Distribution Network.

Operating under the brands of Parts Plus, Parts Plus Mexico, IAPA and Auto Pride, the Automotive Distribution Network program group is a member of of Nexus North America and Nexus Automotive International, a worldwide group of parts distributors.
