APA Welcomes LaCava Brothers Auto Supply

The new APA shareholder provides auto parts and services to accounts in the Fall River, Massachusetts area.

Automotive Parts Associates (APA) has added a new shareholder to the APA family: LaCava Brothers Auto Supply. Founded in 1942 by Mario LaCava and his two brothers, LaCava Brothers Auto Supply provides automotive parts and services to business, commercial, and personal accounts in the Fall River, Massachusetts area.

LaCava Brothers continues to be family owned and operated, APA said. Jay Berube, manager, grew up in the automotive industry and has been working in it full time since 1987. His mother, Janet LaCava Berube, is the president and sole owner.

When asked why they decided to join APA, Berube attributed it to LaCava Brother’s growth.

“We’ve grown so much, especially over the last three years.” He also added, “APA has a lot to offer.”

“Growing together is not just a slogan for us, it is why we are here,” said Steve Tucker, president of APA. “We are proud LaCava Brothers has decided to grow with us and we look forward to working with them.”
