Updated Aug 28, 2014

Automotive Parts Headquarters Inc. (APH), a family-owned auto parts distributor and store group, and La Crosse, Wis.-based United Auto Supply Inc., a leading privately held distributor and store group, have announced plans to join forces.

United’s 13 locations will join APH’s family of corporate stores and fly the Auto Value flag.

“We’ve had a great relationship with the United Auto Supply team for many years, and we’re honored that they’ve chosen to partner with APH,” says Corey Bartlett, APH president. “They’ve built an impressive business and are the leader in their markets — we’re looking forward to continuing that tradition.”

“This is an exciting move for us,” says Dick Beirne, United Auto Supply president. “Our people will have an expanded inventory to draw from plus new and powerful tools to help them serve our customers even better than before. APH is an aggressive and growing 94-year-old company and we are proud to join their team.”

The United Auto Supply management team is expected to join the APH management team. Once the United Auto Supply locations are converted, they will bring APH’s corporate store count to 98 across the Upper Midwest.

Auto Parts Headquarters, Inc. is a member of HDA Truck Pride.
