ASHLAND, OH — National Pride Equipment (NPE), which is based in Ashland, OH, has acquired the assets of Internet and catolog carwash parts distributor Car Wash Superstore, according to an annoucement made exclusively to PC&D.

The August 27 announcement also stated that National Pride has also opened its newest distribution facility in Memphis.

"Utilizing two distribution points will strengthen the company's distribution network and offer quicker delivery times to our customers," said NPE Owner and General Manager Trent Walter.

The acquisition, which was finalized on August 1, 2013, will not affect the Car Wash Superstore phone number or website or homebase.

Plans are for Car Wash Superstore, which is based in Byhalia, MS, to work in step with National Pride’s warehouse in Ashland and provide the best logistical solutions for product delivery, the press release stated.

"We were looking to expand National Pride domestically when this opportunity arose. The ability to acquire such an established brand fit perfectly into our long-term strategic vision," Walter stated. "From the first day I walked into the Car Wash Superstore, I could feel the energy from the staff. They have been an integral part in making this a smooth transition. I am thrilled to announce that Car Wash Superstore is OPEN for business!”
