POMONA, CA — Keystone Automotive has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the assets of Veng USA, headquartered in Seekonk, MA. Veng USA recorded revenues of approximately $37.1 million over the twelve months ended Aug. 31. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. The acquisition is scheduled to close on Oct. 31, subject to the satisfaction of certain customary conditions.

“The acquisition complements Keystone’s ongoing strategy to expand its distribution strength and capitalize on the growing demand for generic collision replacement parts.

We are extremely pleased to welcome Scott and the entire Veng USA organization to the Keystone team.”
