Engine Parts Group Inc., also known as Engine Pro, has welcomed its ninth member shareholder to its group, expanding the engine parts network into three continents.
The announcement of new member Wilmink Group joining Engine Pro was made at the group’s recent annual supplier meeting in Dallas, Texas. Based in the Netherlands, Wilmink Group supplies more than 800,000 engine parts to customers in more than 48 European countries. The company distributes stock replacement engine parts as well as performance parts for most automotive racing applications including sport compact, drifting, tractor pulling, powerboat racing and drag racing thru its Wilmink Performance division.
Represented at the meeting were Wilmink Group’s Owner and Managing Director Karlijn Wilmink and the company’s sales and marketing director, Jaap Mensinga. Wilmink was presented with its EPGI ownership stock certificate signed by the Engine Pro board of directors. The latest member joins Engine Pro as its second international shareholder.
