September’s cover story raised an important issue, the impact of so-called “white-box” products. In news, we reported on PartSource’s latest franchisee, Arvin executive and former AIA chairman John Hart. We also reported on E.R.I. Group’s Western Canada distribution center, and a jobber who learned well how to conduct a successful changeover. Sadly, we also carried news of the death in a motorcycle crash of Fore-Tenn Marketing West partner Tom Hodgson, 58.
