Mighty Auto Parts Partners with Ohio-based Parkway Auto Group

NORCROSS, GA (PRWEB) September 07, 2016 - Mighty Auto Parts, a franchisor of sales and services in aftermarket auto parts, announces the addition of the Dover, Ohio-based Parkway Auto Group to the growing number of car dealership organizations that have acquired a Mighty distribution franchise.

Parkway’s newly established franchise provides Mighty’s signature inventory management services and full range of preventive maintenance products, including filtration, wipers, lighting products, batteries, brakes, belts, shop supplies and chemicals. Customers include Parkway’s affiliated service centers as well as other wholesale customers in their exclusive territory (tire dealers, quick lubes, service/repair shops as well as other car dealerships).

Parkway Auto Group, a third generation company, is led by owner/principal dealer Glenn Mears III, and operates four new car dealerships in eastern Ohio. Parkway’s Honda, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep/Ram, Ford/Lincoln, and Nissan dealerships are located along what is known as the “Green Auto Mile” in Dover, Ohio. They also operate an independent auto service facility at their former Suzuki dealership.

“We are thrilled to partner with such an impressive organization as Parkway Auto Group,” said Ken Voelker, President and CEO of Mighty. Voelker continued, “This venture is well-positioned to benefit both teams. For Parkway, we look forward to supporting their growth and success within their own dealerships as well as their outside wholesale customers. For Mighty, we are excited to expand our brand presence in a new market.”

“Having a Mighty division will help us build additional internal profits by controlling the parts we put on our used cars during reconditioning while also helping us better service all makes and models. In addition, and maybe even more importantly, it will allow us to broaden our wholesale customer base in surrounding markets,” stated Glenn Mears III. He continued, “We’re really excited to have Mighty as a partner to assist us in reaching our goals. And, although we are just getting started, we are already looking forward to future expansion opportunities with Mighty.”
