Arnold Motor Supply Expands Its Footprint In Central Nebraska

Arnold Motor Supply Expands Its Footprint In Central Nebraska

Anderson Auto Parts joins Arnold Motor Supply Automotive Parts Store, becoming its 66th location in the Midwest.

Anderson Auto Parts, an independent auto parts store serving the Grand Island, Nebraska, area, will now join the Arnold Motor Supply family of automotive parts stores, becoming its 66th location throughout the Midwest region. The purchase agreement was finalized today.

Anderson Auto Parts has served the Grand Island area for 33 years under the ownership of KKES Inc., providing diesel and electrical repair services and automotive parts sales. In addition, Rob Schuster and his sons, under separate ownership, will operate their diesel and electrical business as Genuine Diesel Inc. in their existing location.

“Grand Island is the perfect spot for our next store, not only because it’s a wonderful community and we have team members already familiar with the area, but it also closes the gap for our service and delivery to the Central Nebraska tri-city area,” said Mike Molle, vice president of store operations.

Arnold Motor Supply has stores in Hastings, Nebraska, and Kearney, Nebraska, established in 1999 and 2015, respectively. By adding the Grand Island location, they will now be able to offer midday deliveries between the stores and shared inventory, ultimately getting the parts to the customers more quickly.

“This expansion is another demonstration of our focus on steadied growth and ensuring we provide the best service to our customers,” added Molle.

The Grand Island store will be managed by Justin Rasmussen, who has been in the automotive industry for more than 20 years. The store will offer automotive replacement parts for cars, light- and heavy-duty trucks, marine, off-road and agricultural equipment as well as tools, shop equipment and paint and body supplies.
