Parts Warehouse Inc. (PWI), based in Little Rock, Ark., and Tri-States Automotive Warehouse, headquartered in Marianna, Fla., have announced their intentions to merge their two multi-generational family-owned businesses.
Tri-States will become a part of Parts Warehouse when the anticipated merger is completed in August 2020.
Tri-States is thrilled with this opportunity to join the Parts Warehouse team. This will allow us to operate bigger, stronger, faster, and provide even better customer service with even more parts availability.
– Kelly Connolly, President, Tri-States.
Tri-States, which operates in Alabama, Florida, and Georgia, will maintain their current company stores as well as their warehouse in Marianna. Combined, the two companies will now serve nine states including Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Texas.
Our shared knowledge, resources, and now larger footprint will help us continue to grow and excel at what we do. We welcome Tri-States to the team, but more importantly, to our family of families.
– Fletcher Lord III, President, PWI
Both PWI and Tri-States are shareholder owners of the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance. The two companies have personal friendships and professional relationships stretching back decades.
