VIPAR Heavy Duty acquires Power Heavy Duty

VIPAR Heavy Duty has announced the acquisition of Power Heavy Duty, a Pearland, Texas-based distributor network with over 200 locations across the U.S. As a result of the transaction, Power Heavy Duty will become part of the VIPAR Heavy Duty family of companies and continue to serve customers as a separate brand. VIPAR Heavy Duty distributors operate from over 500 locations across the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico and Mexico. The combined network of over 700 locations will serve fleets, owner-operators, and independent repair shops under the two brands.

“As the heavy-duty aftermarket continues to evolve, VIPAR Heavy Duty has examined ways to best serve our shareholders and provide a positive impact on the marketplace,” said Steve Crowley, president and chief executive officer, VIPAR Heavy Duty, Inc. “The acquisition of Power Heavy Duty allows us to take a multi-faceted approach to the independent heavy duty parts distribution business, and be the program group of choice for successful heavy duty parts distributors of all sizes by providing the right programs, tools and products. We want to continue to be the strongest possible channel for our suppliers to bring their products to the marketplace.”

Through the integration of Power Heavy Duty into the VIPAR Heavy Duty family of companies, all corporate functions including central administration and management, program management, marketing and communications, and technology will be performed by VIPAR Heavy Duty.

“Power Heavy Duty members will benefit from this acquisition by having the support and proven experience of VIPAR Heavy Duty management behind the group and brand,” explained Brett Upton, who will continue to be the point of contact for member development, recruitment, and other member needs for Power Heavy Duty.

“The Power Heavy Duty acquisition significantly impacts the value we bring to all our stakeholders, including our distributors, supplier partners, and ultimately our end-user customers,” said Bill Nolan, chairman, VIPAR Heavy Duty and president of PBS Truck Parts in South Bend, Ind. “We are a service driven industry and this further strengthens the valued assistance we can bring to our customers, when and where they need it.”
