First there was the Ashdown-Ingram purchase of Auto Electrics Australia. Then NZ’s Hellaby acquired JAS Oceania. Next was the news that GUD purchased BWI (Narva/Projecta etc) and now Burson has acquired Metcash Automotive Holdings Pty Ltd (“MAH”) which includes Autopro, Midas, and more!

MAH is one of Australia’s major wholesalers and distributors of automotive aftermarket parts and accessories and distributes to a network of 416 stores and outlets under the Autobarn, Autopro, Carparts, ABS and Midas brands, as well as 3,000 other aftermarket customers.

The purchase adds immediate scale to Burson’s wholesale and distribution business, enhancing its competitive position. In addition to adding retail and service channels, the acquisition complements BAP’s current trade focus and strategy for its Burson branded store network remains unchanged including its target of 175 trade stores by June 2019.
