Replacement Parts, Inc., which goes to market as Parts Warehouse, Inc. (PWI) and Crow-Burlingame, has announced plans to merge this fall with Distributors Warehouse, Inc. (DWI).
Upon completion of the merger, DWI will join the Parts Warehouse family.
“Our family has continually assessed our business as a whole, and it has become clear that doing business like we always have is no longer the best strategy. It also became clear that the best solution for ensuring our locations continue to thrive in their markets is a strategic partnership with a likeminded company,” said Steve Korte, president of DWI. “After 15 months of dialogue, we are confident we have found the right partner to help us move to the next level.”
DWI serves customers in Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky. Parts Warehouse currently operates in Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Texas, and will soon grow to include Florida and Georgia as well. When the deal is finalized, the two companies will serve a total of 12 states.
