Automotive Parts Distributors ( APD ) is pleased to announce its new location in Lloydminster, Alberta.
APD has been servicing clients in this market since 1993. Despite the economic downturn in this border city marketplace , the demand had increased to the point APD was doing daily deliveries from Edmonton (250km away ).
APD’s sister company manufacturers FLOPRO exhaust in Alberta , this was the majority of volume into this market until two market changes left a gap for ACDelco customers in Lloydminster.
“The oil and gas sector demand certain products in ACDelco , and being an authorized GM distributor, we were approached by clients to fill the void,” Zara Wishloff APD VP stated. “Normally growth is obtained via acquisition in our industry, but the market dictated that we stock and staff a branch from scratch.”
Opening with a soft launch in Mid-August, the branch is already exceeding expectations. APD is bringing it’s Training Division clinics to Lloydminster as well, offering technicians in town a chance to keep up with the extensive technology changes.
The next course is Dodge RAM Mechanical featuring Gas & EcoDiesel Engines which will be November 26.
APD has committed to new products for the Lloydminster market. They are stocking every SKU that Lucas offers, including Fishing Line, Gun lube, marine oil and small engine additives.
APD is celebrating the new location with Free T-shirts to it’s first 500 customers .
