Sanel Auto Parts, a light-, medium- and heavy-duty parts supplier based in Concord, N.H., is joining NAPA Auto Parts. Under its new name, Sanel NAPA, the company will continue to be independently owned and operated by the Segal family, the fourth generation to lead the company.
Sanel NAPA will be purchasing eight additional NAPA stores, three in New Hampshire, four in Maine and one in Massachusetts. By joining NAPA, the company says it will be able to provide increased inventory in stores, enhanced access to more products and parts, and faster supply chain logistics to deliver more efficiently at competitive prices. Sanel NAPA will now be a single source for more than 525,000 quality parts, sourcing products and services from over 1,600 manufacturers from multiple distribution centers, with improved retail and wholesale merchandising programs to meet the multiple needs of customers.
“Sanel NAPA is the same great company, with the same valued employees and forward-thinking mission, with the ‘Know How’ our customers expect,” says David T. Segal, president of Sanel NAPA.
“It’s a natural fit for Sanel and NAPA to come together. Each are strong brands with an over 90-year legacy of quality, excellence, and service,” adds Gregg Sargent, eastern division vice president for Genuine Parts Company’s U.S. Automotive Parts Group. “Customers will benefit from NAPA’s breadth and depth while continuing to enjoy the local service and attention they have come to expect from Sanel.”
Sanel NAPA will continue its key values of respect and responsibility, customer satisfaction, honesty, integrity and dependability, superior selection, and fast delivery, the company says. Sanel NAPA also will continue to give back to the communities it serves. Sanel NAPA takes pride in giving back and will continue to support community organizations throughout northern New England, local charities, and local sports teams.
“Partnering with NAPA will launch us into the future, creating unity, strength and a collective focus on our family’s philosophy of having a positive culture, strong work ethic, and passion for providing auto parts, heavy-duty truck parts, paint and body shop supplies, and now, tools, equipment, and farm and marine supplies to our customers,” says Bobby Segal, CEO of Sanel NAPA.
