Multi Parts (MPS) has announced the acquisition of heavy duty distributor American Chrome Company (ACC).

Founded in 1983 by the Hou family, ACC began as a distributor of chrome wheel accessories for heavy-duty trucks.  Under the second-generation leadership of Linda Hou, the company has grown into a key supplier to OEMs and Tier suppliers in the Heavy-Duty truck and trailer markets, providing both aftermarket and production parts and accessories.  ACC services these customers out of its ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified, 80,000 square foot distribution centre in Bolingbrook, IL.

“This is a great day for everyone at ACC,” said Linda Hou.  “MPS’ best-in-class ability to engineer mechanical, electrical, and electronic parts for every vehicle type is going to supercharge our ability to bring new products and services to our customers.”

“Every ACC customer that I have spoken with has praised the culture of service and quality built by the Hou family,” said Brian Cohn, CEO of MPS.  “As a product of a family business myself, I am honored that they have chosen Multi Parts, and our sponsors at Radial Equity Partners to preserve and enhance that legacy.”
