“Now with seven Parts Plus Mexico members, the Network is expanding the Car Care Center program to Tijuana and the surrounding areas,” said David Prater, Network president. “We’ve also had great success since extending the Parts Plus footprint to Puerto Rico with several jobber stores. We plan to establish Car Care Centers in the central region of Jayuya, with locations to come on the island’s east side.”
Parts Plus plans to initially have 25 Car Care Center locations throughout Mexico and Puerto Rico, according to Prater. All seven Parts Plus Mexico members will be offering the program to their service dealer customers. The Car Care Center rollout in Puerto Rico will be overseen by UniPiezas, a group of jobbers on the island, and The Parts House, the Network member based in Jacksonville, Fla.
“No other program group is offering their service-dealer program in these markets,” Prater said. “Through a more professional-looking image and promotions with our manufacturer partners, the Car Care Centers in Mexico and Puerto Rico will have an advantage over their competitors.
Operating under the brands of Parts Plus, Parts Plus Mexico, IAPA and Auto Pride, the Automotive Distribution Network is one of the largest, most diverse program groups in the industry.
