Compton, California (October 7, 2015) – Transamerican Auto Parts will further its major expansion initiative with the Grand Opening of its Post Falls, Idaho 4 Wheel Parts retail store and adjacent distribution center this Saturday, October 10. The event marks the growing presence of the national truck and Jeep performance product reseller into the Pacific Northwest while providing an increased level of service and delivery to customers in the region. 4 Wheel Parts is pleased to welcome area off-road enthusiasts to the family-friendly event, who will be greeted with installation specials, hourly prize drawings, aftermarket parts giveaways and tours of the newest, state-of-the-art facility.
The free event provides enthusiasts a preview of the latest truck and Jeep products from the industry’s leading manufacturers including Smittybilt, Poison Spyder and Bestop. Customers will have the opportunity to engage with the 4 Wheel Parts store’s interactive showroom featuring a comprehensive array of suspension, wheels, tires, lighting products and more.
Through the support of state and local leaders, Transamerican Auto Parts’ (TAP) new facilities deliver immediate economic benefits to the region in addition to career-focused automotive industry employment with full benefits promising to contribute substantially to job growth and opportunities in the Coeur d’Alene metropolitan area.
“We’re grateful for the investment made by Transamerican Auto Parts to create quality jobs and benefit our local community,” said Patty Shea, Chair of Jobs Plus, Inc. “Together, we have created a collaborative partnership between The City of Post Falls, Idaho Department of Labor, Jobs Plus, Jacklin Land Company, and Transamerican Auto Parts and we will support this endeavor to ensure the company’s continued success.”
The expansion gives TAP enhanced capacity by extending regional reach and supply with increased inventory levels. The 75,000 sq. ft. warehouse distribution center will supply the Pacific Northwest and western Canada and the 10,000 sq. ft. store will meet a growing local demand for off-road performance product sales and installation. This strategic move hastens the company’s growth and ensures a rapid, uninterrupted supply of parts and accessories to 4 Wheel Parts stores.
“It’s exciting to see public and private, state and local folks working together in a common purpose – better jobs and opportunities for Idaho citizens,” Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter said. “Companies like Transamerican Auto Parts aren’t just investing in their own business; they’re also investing in this community and the people of northern Idaho.”
4 Wheel Parts continues to grow its retail operations which recently opened new locations in Little Rock, Arkansas, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Langley, British Columbia, to bring the total of stores to 71 across North America.
The location of the new facility in Post Falls diversifies TAP’s six distribution centers throughout the country. Transamerican Auto Parts and 4 Wheel Parts retail and wholesale customers across the Pacific Northwest and western Canada will immediately realize the benefits of reduced freight costs, more economic delivery and in many cases next day pick-up of the majority of product segments in retail stores.
“Idaho and Post Falls provides us with a business friendly environment in which to expand our presence in the Pacific Northwest,” said TAP President and CEO, Greg Adler. “We now have a strategic location that gives us a foundation from which we will be able to better serve our customers throughout this region and into western Canada.”

For Immediate Release
Compton, California (July 16, 2015) – Transamerican Auto Parts (TAP) retail subsidiary, 4 Wheel Parts, the global leader in off-road performance product sales and installation, will hold multiple Grand Reopening events this Saturday, July 18 in Houston, Texas and Las Vegas, Nevada, as 4 Wheel Parts continues its national store renovation initiative.
The reopening celebrations will feature vehicles and premium aftermarket products on display, exclusive discounts, and hourly giveaways while attendees have the opportunity to win prizes including $500 shopping sprees at each location. Both Houston retail stores have received major renovations while the Las Vegas store was completely relocated before receiving the signature look that has become the standard for renovated 4 Wheel Parts stores. All three locations are now ready to re-join the ever-growing lineup of 70 4 Wheel Parts stores throughout North America.
“It’s exciting to be launching three events simultaneously in Houston and Las Vegas,” said 4 Wheel Parts Director of Retail Operations, Sam Cervantes. “With live radio broadcasts on-site, live bands at the Houston location and great food for everyone, there is an electric atmosphere at the stores. We have put a great deal of hard work and investment into these locations and now this is a fantastic opportunity for people to come on down, check out the stores and pick something up for their truck or Jeep. ”The free, family-friendly events offer plenty of activities for off-road enthusiasts including product displays from the industry’s leading manufacturers including MHT Wheels, Fab Fours, N-Fab and Skyjacker Suspension. ASE-certified technicians will be onsite performing installations with exclusive pricing on select parts purchased at the Grand Reopenings.
In conjunction with the Las Vegas retail store celebration, attendees will have the unique opportunity to watch the 4 Wheel Parts’ Ironman 4 Competition, featuring the top off-road industry technicians as they compete head-to-head in multiple challenges.
“This is the fourth year of 4 Wheel Parts’ Ironman Competition and the competition gets better and more intense each year,” said Mark Allen, 4 Wheel Parts Director of Service Operations. “Over the last few months we have narrowed the competitors from 300 down to just six of the best technicians in the off-road industry. Now they’re going to compete in a Jeep build-off that will include bumpers, suspension lift and tires and wheels to determine who the best 4 Wheel Parts technician really is.”
Having recently doubled the size and capacity of its distribution center in Coppell, Texas, 4 Wheel Parts’ parent company Transamerican Auto Parts (TAP), has also recently unveiled plans to open a new warehouse distribution center in the Pacific Northwest as part of its expansion initiative. The 75,000 sq. ft. Post Falls, Idaho location will increase supply and inventory levels at retail stores in western Canada and the Pacific Northwest while the two newly re-opened Texas locations will continue to be served by TAP’s Coppell distribution center.
