Auto-Wares Group of Companies will be acquiring United Automotive Supply Co. of Warren, Michigan.
This acquisition includes the Warren distribution center and five stores marketed under the Maxi Automotive Supply name. United Automotive Supply Co. has been a family owned Michigan business since 1930.
Auto-Wares Group of Companies chairman, Fred Bunting said, “Auto-Wares has always held a great deal of respect for UAS/MAXI, its people and their customers. Our goal will be to make sure this new alliance will benefit and strengthen all our existing and new customers. In addition to our 39 years of commitment to benefit the independent parts store owner, our primary focus as a company is the professional technician. We proudly serve over 700 Auto Value or Bumper to Bumper Certified Service Centers and 36,000 other service dealers and commercial accounts”.
Albert and Shari Goldstein from UAS also commented, "We are pleased to announce the union of our two progressive family-owned Michigan companies. We believe this move will ultimately offer many long lasting benefits to our employees, our customers, and our suppliers, in the long run. The combination of the best elements and strengths of our both of our business models is the right move, at the right time, in the ever-changing automotive aftermarket.”
