Aug. 29, 2019—The Parts House acquired the assets of Southern Distributors, including five locations in Alabama and one location in Pensacola, Fla., according to a press release.
Southern Distributors, a supplier of OE automotive parts, has built a strong reputation for distributing quality automotive parts throughout Alabama and the Florida panhandle over the past 71 years, the release said.
“Southern was on our radar for many years given their quality personnel and geographic footprint," David Honig, CEO of TPH said in the release. "TPH and Southern now have excellent coverage throughout Alabama and the Florida panhandle. We are thrilled to add them to our network of parts professionals.”
The company says that the acquisition expands its footprint in Alabama and the southeast market. TPH now has 55 locations throughout Florida, Georgia, Puerto Rico, and Alabama. TPH is part of Marubeni Automotive Aftermarket Holdings, which also owns XL Parts in Texas.
The Automotive Distribution Network's brands include Parts Plus, Parts Plus Mexico, IAPA and Auto Pride.
