The Automotive Parts Services Group (The Group), a joint venture of The Pronto Network and Federated-Alliance, is pleased to announce a national supply agreement with Monro, Inc. on behalf of member distributors.

“The ability to provide national coverage through our collaboration with a single central billing process is key with national customers like Monro,” said Larry Pavey, CEO of the Automotive Parts Services Group. “By working together, our members are able to deliver the same benefits as retail competitors, as well as local expertise and dedication to the needs of professional service providers. This agreement provides members of The Group with the opportunity to offer premium parts and service to Monro and their more than 1,300 locations through an efficient, coast-to-coast system integration.”

“We are excited about the agreement and working with The Group members who focus on serving professional service providers,” said Austin Phillips, vice president of marketing, merchandising and commercial for Monro. “We are impressed with The Group’s ability to develop integrated processes that allow their different members to act as one company which was essential to us. We recognize that working with their members and high-quality suppliers will allow our stores to provide enhanced value and service for our customers.”
