Vipar Heavy Duty has acquired Pearland, Texas-based Power Heavy Duty. Power Heavy Duty will continue to operate as a separate brand.

“As the heavy duty aftermarket continues to evolve, Vipar Heavy Duty has examined ways to best serve our shareholders and provide a positive impact on the marketplace,” said Steve Crowley, president and CEO, Vipar.

Power Heavy Duty members operate from 200 locations across the U.S., while Vipar Heavy Duty distributors operate from over 500 locations across the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico, and Mexico.

“The acquisition of Power Heavy Duty allows us to take a multi-faceted approach to the independent heavy duty parts distribution business, and be the program group of choice for successful heavy duty parts distributors of all sizes by providing the right programs, tools and products,” Crowley said. “We want to continue to be the strongest possible channel for our suppliers to bring their products to the marketplace.”
