All Star Auto Lights Acquires Blackburn OEM Wheel Solutions

All Star Auto Lights, a specialty distributor of alternative automotive parts and a portfolio company of Atlantic Street Capital, announced today the acquisition of Blackburn OEM Wheel Solutions, a supplier of new and refurbished original equipment manufacturer (OEM) steel and alloy wheels for the automotive aftermarket. This is All Star’s third acquisition in the aftermarket OE wheel space since 2021 and transforms the company beyond its traditional auto lights business and into a leading automotive aftermarket equipment supplier, the company says.

Blackburn is a distributor of OEM wheels in the U.S. and provides OEM wheels (steel and alloy), wheel covers (hubcaps) and center caps in brand new, refinished and used condition. Blackburn houses a large breadth of inventory and is headquartered outside of Cleveland in Macedonia, Ohio.

“This acquisition significantly increases our capacity to manufacture and supply OEM wheels through our growing nationwide network,” says Matt Immerfall, CEO of All Star Auto Lights. “Combined with our existing family of brands acquired in 2021, Jante Wheel and Perfection Wheel, the addition of Blackburn quickly doubles our impact in the sector of the automotive wheel sector and offers our customers a more comprehensive selection and faster delivery while solidifying All Star’s wheel division to better serve its customer.”

Phil Druce, partner of Atlantic Street Capital, added, “We are excited to add Blackburn to All Star’s family of brands. With 13 sites and over 400 employees, All Star is positioned as a national player with collision and body shops, tire and service centers, rental car and auction house customers to pro-OEM alternative replacement parts.”

Immerfall added, “Blackburn has a great industry reputation for quality and customer service that is consistent with what All Star stands for. Maximizing the amazing business that Blackburn has built over the last 30-plus years with All Star’s capabilities is a true privilege. It’s exciting for the All Star Team to round out our newly formed wheel division with Blackburn. Our ability to partner manufacturing and supply to take care of our customers on a national level is an incredible opportunity that we are thrilled about.”

Founded in 2004 and based in Orlando, Florida, All Star is a distributor of replacement alternative lighting products and wheels to independent auto body shops and multi-site operators of collision repair centers. All Star has a nationwide distribution network through its 13 facilities and sells like-kind-and-quality recycled and refurbished original equipment manufacturer parts and certified aftermarket products, including headlamps, tail lamps, park lamps, fog lamps and side view mirrors, in addition to a full line of reconditioned OEM and OER wheels, wheel covers and center caps for foreign and domestic vehicles.
