Network Signs California-Based Allied Auto Stores To Parts Plus Membership

Network-logoGERMANTOWN, Tenn. – The Automotive Distribution Network continues to expand its Parts Plus footprint on the West Coast with the signing of Allied Auto Stores in Fremont, Calif.

“Serving the greater San Francisco Bay Area from its new 46,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art warehouse, Allied Auto is a strong addition to the Network as a Parts Plus member,” said Mike Lambert, president of the Network. “Opened by Joe McDermott in 1973, Allied has since grown into one of the most successful parts distributors in the marketplace.”

Allied joined the Network under the Parts Plus banner to further enhance its level of service and enable its customers to more effectively compete, said Bill Bailey, president and CEO of Allied Auto Stores.

“Flying the Parts Plus flag will enable Allied to provide our installer and retail customers with professional programs and services that will give them an edge over other buying groups and retail chains,” said Bailey, who acquired the business from McDermott in May 2014 after starting with the WD as a delivery driver in 1977. “Combined with our excellent customer service, top-notch employees and one of the largest inventories in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Parts Plus program is a huge win for everyone. We plan to use every tool available in the Parts Plus playbook.”

Despite a tough commercial tire market in 2023 due to overstock and the effects of a rubber-banding supply chain, some tire manufacturers are expressing a cautious optimism for stabilization and gradual recovery through the rest of 2024 and into 2025.

"The economy is not showing signs that it’s going to slow down, but I don’t think the situation’s going to improve dramatically by the end of this year. It’s more likely next year," said Pierluigi Cumo, Vice President of B2B products, at Michelin North America. "We can see the light because the beginning of 2023 was very bad. I think now we’ve found the bottom, and I don’t think we’re going to get much further from the bottom in 2024."
