Guardian Automotive Acquires Frontier Distributorsí Assets
October 11, 2011
Guardian Automotive has acquired the assets of Denver-based Frontier Distributors. Based on the asset purchase, Guardian has now opened its own Denver warehouse—though in a different location from where Frontier was based.
“We purchased the inventory, equipment, racking and access to their customer listing,” says Scott Billings, director of distribution operations for Guardian.
Frontier officials could not be reached for comment. A message on the company’s phone system says the company “is currently closed until further notice.”
This is Guardian’s eleventh warehouse in the United States.
“This new facility allows us to expand our distribution capabilities in underserved parts of the nation,” adds Billings.
The Denver warehouse will service the nation’s Southwest and Central regions, according to Guardian. The facility will distribute automotive, truck, bus and RV glass, along with tools and accessories, including mirrors, mouldings, urethane and installation supplies.
