Power Heavy Duty network reflects on 2023 expansion

"It’s a great time to be in the heavy-duty truck parts business.”

Power Heavy Duty added 18 distributors this year, bringing its network to 224 locations throughout the U.S. Its accelerated growth helped expand the footprint of the Vipar Heavy Duty family of companies, which acquired Power Heavy Duty in 2014. Today the network represents more than 930 North American locations. 

“As we enter the new year and the 35th anniversary of Vipar Heavy Duty and the 30th of Power Heavy Duty, we celebrate a historic period of growth and achievement,” said Vipar Heavy Duty president and CEO Chris Baer. “While we continue to strategically grow our Power Heavy Duty network, our members are also enjoying expansion by adding new locations, more product lines, increasing their customer base and profitability. For us, our distributors, supplier partners and end-user customers, it’s a great time to be in the heavy-duty truck parts business.”

The 18 new Power Heavy Duty members are part of a 25% expansion in network locations since 2020. The new Power Heavy Duty members added this year are:

  • ASC Auto Electric (Little Rock, Ark.)
  • B Truck & Trailer (Texarkana, Texas)
  • Bostick Truck Center (Pontiac, Mich.)
  • Brooks Diesel Service (Ada, Okla.)
  • Camrock Oil & Supply (Elk City, Okla.)
  • Childers Auto & Truck Parts (Pikeville, Ky.)
  • Complete Auto & Truck Parts (Houston)
  • Electrical Terminal Service (Clawson, Mich.)
  • Kahgo Truck Parts (North Hollywood, Calif.)
  • Midwest Bus Parts (Big Lake, Minn.)
  • Monday Trailers & Equipment (Strafford, Mo.)
  • Pee Dee Fleet (Hartsville, S.C.)
  • Seagull Diesel Parts (Salt Lake City)
  • Seminole Truck Parts (Seminole, Texas)
  • Stapps’ Truck Center (Russell Springs, Ky.)
  • Trux-N-Parts (Odessa, Texas)
  • USA-1 Diesel Truck & Trailer Parts (Penitas, Texas)
  • Van Horn Truck Parts (Shelby Township, Mich.)

In addition to Power Heavy Duty members, the Vipar Heavy Duty family of companies includes more than 110 Vipar Heavy Duty distributors with 700-plus locations. Power Heavy Duty and Vipar Heavy Duty combined have nearly 600 service and repair locations.

“Our focus is, and always will be, in serving end-user customers with high-quality parts and best-in-class service,” said Jim Pennig, vice president of business development for the Vipar Heavy Duty family of companies. “Our extensive network provides fleets and owner-operators greater convenience for sourcing industry-leading brands and service.”
