asTech recently announced its acquisition of Root Four Imagination Inc. (BlueDriver). BlueDriver is a leading provider of direct-to-consumer aftermarket diagnostic scan tools and services, according to the company. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed. The Company represents the ninth add-on acquisition for asTech and Kinderhook’s 99th automotive-related transaction.
The BlueDriver diagnostic tool is able to match a vehicle’s make, model, and trouble code to a specific fix from a repair database that has been verified by professional automotive technicians, according to the company. Once the proper fix is identified, customers can order parts online within the BlueDriver application along with clearing diagnostic trouble codes upon completion of the repair.
“BlueDriver is a highly strategic acquisition and allows asTech to augment its service offering with aftermarket diagnostic capabilities,” said Paul Cifello, Kinderhook Industries managing director. “The addition will assist asTech in executing on its global multi-tier tool strategy and expand its offering in the automotive repair ecosystem into mechanical, whole auction, fleet, retail, and eCommerce markets.”
