VIPAR Heavy Duty has added Autosuministros Peninsulares, S.A. de C.V. to its network of distributors.
Founded in 1990, the company has since grown to two locations. The main location is in Merida, the capital of the Mexican state of Yucatan, and a branch location is in Queretaro in central Mexico.
Autosuministros Peninsulares was initially established to fill a void in the Yucatan Peninsula regarding the availability of lubricants and filtration for heavy equipment. Given the lower population density and greater distances between customers in the Yucatan Peninsula, Autosuministros Peninsulares became well-known by its willingness to deliver product.
This ultimately led to further diversification in its product offering. The company now offers wheel end components, braking system air valves, drums, rims, clutches, lighting and electrical connectors.
“Autosuministros Peninsulares is a strategic addition to VIPAR Heavy Duty for expanded distribution in the Yucatan Peninsula and central Mexico,” says Chris Baer, executive vice president of VIPAR Heavy Duty. “It also provides Autosuministros Peninsulares with the opportunity to offer even more new products to its customers from VIPAR Heavy Duty’s portfolio of industry-leading brands.”
