MONTREAL, Que. — Parts distributor UAP has acquired 18 Palmar Truck Parts stores from Uni-Select.


Employees and the stores will gradually be integrated into the Traction stores network and three TW Distribution Centres of UAP’s Heavy Vehicle Parts Division, according to officials.


“These new stores will allow UAP to better serve our current and future clients thanks to a stronger presence in several regional markets, notably Quebec, Ontario and the Atlantic provinces,” said Robert Hattem, president and COO of UAP. “We have put the customers of these stores and their satisfaction at the hearth of all our decision-making in order to provide them with the best service of our industry and ensure a smooth transition and integration of the new stores.”
