Mighty Distributing System is proud to welcome Dahl Automotive, the latest car dealership group to vertically integrate a Mighty Auto Parts franchise. The new portfolio company will serve as a centralized distribution division to supply Mighty’s automotive products to the Dahl dealerships.
Based in LaCrosse, Wisconsin, Dahl Automotive was founded in 1911 and is one of the oldest Ford dealers in the U.S. Led by president, Andrew Dahl, they currently operate seven dealerships and one express service center in western Wisconsin and eastern Minnesota, an area called the “Seven Rivers Region.” Andrew and his brothers, Jansen and Tyler represent the 5th generation of family ownership for this dealership group.
The new Mighty franchise will distribute Mighty’s preventive maintenance products, shop supplies, detailing products, equipment, and PPE. In addition to Mighty, Dahl Automotive operates other vertically integrated businesses such as ABRA Auto Body & Glass, Line-X Protective Coatings, and Clearview Sign.
Dahl Vice President, Jansen Dahl, said, “Last year, our Parts Director, Ryan Pelowski, conducted a lengthy search for a high caliber wholesale parts supplier to vertically integrate into the Dahl Auto Group. Based on his research, we chose Mighty Auto Parts because of their outstanding reputation, OE-quality product lines, and proven systems. The Mighty leadership team and implementation experts have gone above and beyond to make the transition easy and seamless for the Dahl team.”
Josh D’Agostino, Mighty’s President said, “Over the years, we have partnered with more than a dozen prominent car dealership groups as they seek a vertical integration strategy to bolster their sales and profits. Dahl Automotive is now set to accomplish the same, and we are proud to welcome the Dahl Family to Mighty. We look forward to a long, successful relationship.”
