Parts Authority, one of the largest distributors of automotive and truck parts, has acquired Quality Automotive Warehouse Inc. Quality Automotive operates 10 locations in the Mid-Atlantic region, of which seven are in Maryland and three in Virginia. For more than 50 years Quality Automotive has been known for its extensive inventory of quality, name brand parts coupled with a reliable service commitment to all of its customers.

“We are excited to add Quality Automotive to the Parts Authority family. The team at Quality Automotive has built a great business over the years and has developed a strong reputation in the industry. This acquisition strengthens our position in the Baltimore, Maryland and District of Columbia area and expands our footprint into the Virginia market,” said Randy Buller, president and CEO of Parts Authority. “We look forward to providing our Quality Automotive customers with access to even more products and services. Equally as important, we look forward to working with our new team members at Quality Automotive and providing them with a great place to continue their careers.”

“We look forward to building upon the many years of successes we have achieved as we move forward under the Parts Authority ownership. Parts Authority shares the three most important criteria we were looking for in a partner – a common culture, an opportunity for our employees to continue to have an employer who values its team members, and the ability to continue to grow faster and with more resources,” said Mark Bond, president and CEO of Quality Automotive. “Over the course of our conversations we got to know the Parts Authority team better as a company and as individuals. Every interaction has reinforced that we share a common vision. It became clear they were the right partner and that now was the right time.”
