Vipar Heavy Duty announced that KOI Auto Parts in Cincinnati is the newest stockholder to join the organizationā€™s network of distributors. Led by its president, David Wesselman, KOI serves the heavy-duty market from two warehouses in Cincinnati and from three additional warehouses in Dayton, Ohio; Lexington, Ky.; and Newport, Ky.

In addition, KOI is an automotive parts provider, with 75 locations in Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana and West Virginia. KOIā€˜s business serves professional repair garages, collision centers, dealerships, municipalities, fleets and retail customers.

ā€œKOI is known for its world-class customer service,ā€ said Jim Pennig, vice president of business development for Vipar Heavy Duty. ā€œOver the last several years, as the heavy-duty aftermarket distribution channel shifted in Cincinnati, KOI recognized the opportunity to expand their heavy-duty product offering. KOI currently services the city fleets of Cincinnati, Ohio, and Covington, Kentucky, and has targeted numerous locations in their service network identified as excellent truck parts growth opportunities.ā€
