GERMANTOWN, Tenn.– The Automotive Distribution Network continues to drive the reach of the Auto Pride brand across the country with the recent signings of Clark Enterprises of El Paso, Texas, and Manasek Auto Parts, Inc., based in Dickson City, Pa.
“From the Southwest to the Northeast, the Network is committed to signing niche warehouses whose plans for growth complement the Auto Pride brand,” says Cora Roark. “We are confident Clark Enterprises and Manasek Auto Parts will expand their businesses with the exclusive tools and benefits of Auto Pride membership.”
An import specialist serving El Paso and the Juarez, Mexico, area for more than 50 years, Clark Enterprises plans to utilize Auto Pride’s inventory management expertise and Network Products Warehouse, the Network’s co-man facility, to stock hard-to-source parts, says Richard Clark, president of Clark Enterprises.
“Network Products will be a great help to our company as the warehouse expands its offering of import lines that we sell but are often difficult for me to buy directly,” he says. “Inventory management is what this business is all about. The Network has negotiated favorable conditions with its supplier partners to help us grow. As Clark Enterprises expands online, we will also rely heavily on the Network’s impressive IT staff to bolster our growth in this area.”
Faced with attractive opportunities in the marketplace, Manasek Auto Parts signed with Auto Pride to expand beyond Scranton and Wilkes-Barre, Pa., while enhancing service to their current customer base, says David Manasek, president of Manasek Auto Parts.
“After 37 years in the business, Auto Pride is the ideal partner to help Manasek Auto Parts expand,” he explains. “The Network staff is very driven, and I can feel the energy of their experts in product, IT and marketing.”
