One of the largest independent automotive parts distributors in Alberta has been acquired by Uni-Select.
The Quebec-based company announced that it has acquired Dash Distributors, a 25-year-old business with four locations and 49 sales and service professionals around the Edmonton area. Dash was previously a member of a different buying group.
“Dash has a well-established track record of superior customer service and product availability and we are very pleased to welcome them to Uni-Select,” said Brent Windom, president and chief operating officer of Uni-Select’s Canadian Automotive Group in a statement announcing the deal.
Dash provides services and products to a customer base that includes auto dealerships and independent garages, according to the news release.
“With this acquisition, we now have 54 corporate stores under the Bumper to Bumper banner complementing our very solid network of independent jobber customers,” Henry Buckley, Uni-Select’s president and chief executive officer, said in the announcement.
