Boucherville, Quebec — December 20, 2016 — Uni-Select is continuing its recent string of acquisitions with the announcement that the company has purchased Vancouver Autocolor through its FinishMaster Canada subsidiary. FinishMaster launched in Canada in September 2016.
Founded in 1999, Vancouver Autocolor is an independent distributor of automotive paint finishes from PPG, as well as paint related products and services to customers through three locations in British Columbia.
“We are thrilled to add this experienced team to the Canadian FinishMaster family. They developed and maintained strong partnerships with customers and are well-recognized in their markets,” said Michel Charbonneau, Vice President Sales and Marketing, PBE division, Uni-Select Canada.
Prior to the acquisition of Vancouver Autocolor, Uni-Select’s most recent purchase was also in the Vancouver region. The company acquired the two locations of Pacific Parts earlier this month. Uni-Select announced that the Pacific Parts locations would be rebranded and restocked as Bumper to Bumper stores.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome Vancouver Autocolor to our growing FinishMaster and Uni-Select family in Canada. This acquisition launches the FinishMaster brand in Western Canada with a solid presence in the Greater Vancouver Area and South Vancouver Island markets,” said Henry Buckley, President and Chief Executive Officer of Uni-Select.
