General Parts Group Celebrates & Highlights 2018 Successes
The new year has come and gone and time seems to be flying by. This year General Parts Group will be turning 80-years-old, so, first of all, we’d like to thank all of our customers around the country for their continued support, we look forward to working with you another 80!
Before closing the book on 2018, General Parts Group’s President, Gary Schermann addressed the team with a recap of the year, and a look into 2019. “I am amazed at all we’ve accomplished. It makes me thankful for the great team of people we have and all the efforts they put in every day to make our company the very best it can be,” stated Gary.
Earlier in 2018, we hosted our company meeting, which included senior staff and personnel from all over the country. All of our senior and branch managers, as well as service managers, and other important team members convened in Bloomington, MN. With guest speakers from Blodgett and Buffalo Wild Wings, the event touched upon a host of key topics, in addition to the unveiling of General Parts Group’s latest business plan.
Spring 2018 saw the successful opening of a satellite operation located in Spokane, WA. General Parts Group is excited to announce that from this innovative hub we’ll be able to provide all of our regular services throughout the eastern state of Washington, as well as parts of Montana and northern Idaho. Last year we also saw the acquisition and opening of a new branch in Cleveland, bringing the number of General Parts Group branches nationwide to 29.
The past year also included the departure of some old friends and valued members of the General Parts Group team, such as long-time leader and former president, Bruce Hodge, who began his retirement. Bruce boasts an extensive 50 + years in the industry and is considered a true legend by colleagues and competitors alike. The company is currently sticking to the restructuring plan created before Bruce stepped down and has since filled several key leadership positions.
