NAPA Auto Parts - History
Outside the United States, NAPA operates in Canada through the UAP (United Auto Parts) division of Genuine Parts Company and NAPA Autopro repair facilities in Canada, Mexico and other locations throughout the Caribbean and Latin America. In April 2013, Genuine Parts Company acquired Exego Group, a leading automotive parts and accessories distributor in Australasia. The company sells automotive accessories and parts under the Repco name in Australia and New Zealand, but in 2017 began branding with the NAPA banner, first with a store in Logan City, Queensland, and since re-branding their Ashdown Ingram stores Australia wide, to fall under the Napa Auto Parts banner as well. In September 2017, Genuine Parts Company acquired Alliance Automotive Group (AAG), a leading European distributor of vehicle parts, tools and workshop equipment. AAG is the second largest parts distribution platform in Europe and focuses on light vehicle and commercial vehicle replacement parts. Headquartered in London, AAG has 7,500 employees and over 1,800 company-owned stores and affiliated outlets across France, the U.K. and Germany.
