Little Rock, Ark.-based Replacement Parts, Inc., which goes to market as Parts Warehouse, Inc. (PWI) and Crow-Burlingame, is pleased to announce the completion of its merger with Distributors Warehouse, Inc. (DWI), headquartered in Paducah, Ky. PWI and DWI announced their partnership in August. The deal was finalized Oct. 16.
“We are incredibly excited and lucky to be combining forces with the DWI team,” said Fletcher Lord III, president of Replacement Parts, Inc. “Steve Korte and his team at DWI have built such a strong business in Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois. Building off the years and years of experience that DWI has built in their footprint is our main focus with these customers.”
Combined, the two companies have nearly 200 years of experience in the parts business.
PWI has now grown its footprint into 12 states over the country’s southeast region: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Texas. Parts Warehouse is a shareholder owner of the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance, Inc.
“We are thrilled with this collaboration and genuinely excited for the future,” Lord said.
