Atlanta-based Pull-A-Part has added to the number of auto parts stores it has with the acquisition of U-Pull-It Auto Parts’ locations in Brownsville, Tex., and Tucson, Ariz. U-Pull-It, headquartered in Lakeway, Tex., is owned by Johnson Development. With the purchase Pull-A-Part now owns 25 used auto parts stores in 12 states. The acquisitions are the first for Pull-A-Part in both Texas and Arizona.

"Our strategy is to expand the Pull-A-Part business by acquiring outstanding existing operations and selectively developing greenfield locations across the country," says Ross Kogon, president and CEO of Pull-A-Part. "The two U-Pull-It Auto Parts locations expand the Pull-A-Part footprint and will allow us to help more customers save money and let Pull-A-Part recycle more vehicles in an environmentally responsible way. We look forward to serving new and existing customers and being part of the community fabric in Brownsville and Tucson."
