Highline Aftermarket To Become Highline-Warren After Acquisition

Highline Aftermarket To Become Highline-Warren

As part of the Pritzker family of businesses, Highline will combine with Warren Distribution, a leading automotive aftermarket manufacturer, to become Highline-Warren.

Highline Aftermarket was acquired by Chicago-based Pritzker Private Capital (PPC), a leader in family direct investing, and combined with Omaha’s Warren Distribution, simultaneously acquired by PPC.

In this strategic merger, the newly formed Highline-Warren becomes a leader in the manufacture and distribution of consumable products used in the automotive aftermarket. Highline Aftermarket is the nation’s largest manufacturer of windshield wiper fluid and other automotive chemicals, delivered to 14,000-plus customers through an industry-leading nationwide network of plants and distribution centers. Warren Distribution, family- owned since 1922, is the largest private-label lubricants manufacturer in North America. The combined company will have 27 facilities across North America and more than 22,000 products, including windshield washer fluid, engine lubricants, and a wide variety of branded and private-label consumable automotive-aftermarket products. Highline-Warren will take advantage of sales and operational synergies to integrate and grow a roughly 1,200- employee company focused on being the best company to work for, buy from, and sell to.

“We are excited to join the PPC family of businesses, and I’m honored to lead Highline-Warren going forward,” says CEO Darcy Curran. “This combination is a logical merger of complementary businesses sharing a common passion for customer service. Warren has built a reputation of outstanding quality and service over the last 100 years, and we look forward to joining forces.”
