Uni-Select Expands American Network

Uni-Select has entered into an agreement to purchase the Mid-Atlantic parts distribution operations of Parts Depot, Inc.
The assets and operations to be acquired by Uni-Select include 9 regional parts distribution warehouses and 67 parts stores located in Virginia, West Virginia, North and South Carolina, Delaware, Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Tennessee that cater to independent jobbers, installers and, to a lesser extent, retail customers.
“This transaction supports our strategy of expanding our distribution footprint in the United States,” said Richard G. Roy, president and CEO of Uni-Select Inc.
“We have found the right partner in Uni-Select as their culture, values and business model, including support of the independent Jobber, are so similar to ours” said Rollance E. Olson, chairman, parts depot, Inc.
The Uni-Select Network includes over 2,000 independent jobbers and services over 3,000 points of sale in Canada and the United States and is headquartered in Montreal.
