Parts Warehouse Inc. (PWI), based in Little Rock, Arkansas, and Tri-States Automotive Warehouse, headquartered in Marianna, Florida, are excited to announce intentions to merge their two multi-generational family-owned businesses. Tri-States will become a part of Parts Warehouse when the anticipated merger is completed in August 2020. 

“Tri-States is thrilled with this opportunity to join the Parts Warehouse team,” said Kelly Connolly, Tri-States president. “This will allow us to operate bigger, stronger, faster and provide even better customer service with even more parts availability.”

Tri-States, which operates in Alabama, Florida and Georgia, will maintain its current company stores as well as its warehouse in Marianna. Combined, the two companies will now serve nine states including Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Texas.
