Auto-Wares Expands Distribution Network In Metro Detroit

This acquisition marks the ninth store location in the past 12 months for Auto-Wares.

Auto-Wares Group of Companies will be expanding its network of company-owned stores in the Detroit area.

Romulus Auto Supply has joined Auto-Wares to expand inventory and programs to service customers in Romulus, Belleville and surrounding Michigan areas. Romulus Auto Supply has served both retail DIY customers and professional repair facilities for many years with excellent service. Romulus Auto Supply, now known as Auto Value Romulus, Auto Value Middlebelt (Romulus, Michigan) and Auto Value Belleville have been a longtime member of the Auto Value Marketing program. This acquisition marks the ninth store location in the past 12 months for Auto-Wares.

Doug O’Leary, owner of Romulus Auto Supply, commented, “Twenty years ago when I purchased Romulus Auto Supply, my goals were to be a great supplier, a great employer and a great customer. If I could accomplish these goals, the business would be successful. Because of loyal customers, employees and vendors, I believe I have been able to achieve them. I would like to thank everyone involved. Auto-Wares is the best auto parts supplier. Having the opportunity to team with them will lead the organization to the next level. Auto-Wares has been my behind-the-scenes big brother for 20 years, and I am passing the torch to them to see it glow brighter. This acquisition is going to be beneficial not only my employees’ future, but to the customers and the community. Watch us now – I am so excited for our future”

Murray Smith, Auto-Wares Group of Companies vice president of company stores, said, “Auto-Wares welcomes Doug O’Leary and the Romulus Auto Group to the team. The three locations will be a strong addition to the Metro Detroit Auto-Wares store group. The team Doug has assembled over the years is outstanding. We also welcome all of the Romulus store group of customers and can’t wait to serve them with the best inventory, programs and customer service in the area.”
