Under its new name, Sanel NAPA, the company will continue to be independently owned and operated by the Segal family, the fourth generation to lead the company.
Sanel NAPA will be purchasing eight additional NAPA stores, three in New Hampshire, four in Maine and one in Massachusetts. Sanel NAPA will now be a single source for more than 525,000 quality parts, sourcing products and services from over 1,600 manufacturers from multiple distribution centers, with improved retail and wholesale merchandising programs to meet the multiple needs of customers.
"Sanel NAPA is the same great company, with the same valued employees and forward-thinking mission, with the 'Know How' our customers expect," states David T. Segal, president of Sanel NAPA.
"It's a natural fit for Sanel and NAPA to come together. Each are strong brands with an over 90-year legacy of quality, excellence, and service," said Gregg Sargent, eastern division vice president for Genuine Parts Company's U.S. Automotive Parts Group. "Customers will benefit from NAPA's breadth and depth while continuing to enjoy the local service and attention they have come to expect from Sanel."
