The Automotive Parts Services Group (The Group) has announced a national supply agreement with Monro Inc. on behalf of member distributors.
“The ability to provide national coverage through our collaboration with a single central billing process is key with national customers like Monro,” says Larry Pavey, CEO of The Group.
“By working together, our members are able to deliver the same benefits as retail competitors, as well as local expertise and dedication to the needs of professional service providers. The agreement provides members of The Group with the opportunity to offer premium parts and service to Monro and their more than 1,300 locations through an efficient, coast-to-coast system integration.”
The national supply program will first begin in several pilot areas and then be expanded throughout the country in future weeks, according to officials.
“We are impressed with The Group’s ability to develop integrated processes that allow their different members to act as one company, which was essential to us,” says Austin Phillips, vice president of marketing, merchandising and commercial for Monro.
