Mighty Continues Vertical Integration Trend with Ohio-based Car Dealership Group

Mighty Distributing System continues to attract car dealers to its distribution network. Nourse Chillicothe Automall has become the latest U.S. dealership group to add a Mighty Auto Parts franchise. The new vertically integrated portfolio company, doing business as Nourse Distributing, LLC, is now the exclusive distributor of Mighty products throughout Southern Ohio.

Nourse Chillicothe Automall, based in Chillicothe, Ohio, was founded by Richard (Dick) Nourse. Dick acquired his first new car dealership in 1990 and has steadily added locations. Today, the group operates 10 new and used car dealerships. Nameplates include Ford, Lincoln, Honda, Nissan, and Toyota.

The new Mighty operation will centrally distribute Mighty’s preventive maintenance products, shop supplies, detailing products, equipment, and VS7® chemicals to the Nourse dealerships as well as to wholesale customers and other non- affiliated automotive businesses in their exclusive territory. Kevin Patterson, Director of Operations for Nourse Chillicothe Automall, oversees the Mighty division.

Dick Nourse said, “We are looking forward to our partnership with the Mighty organization. This is something that will have a huge impact with not just our new recon facility but throughout all our new car dealerships and in our community for years to come. Thank you to the incredible staff at Mighty for your help and allowing the Nourse Family of Dealers to be a part of the Mighty team.”

Josh D’Agostino, Mighty’s President and CEO said, “Dick Nourse, Kevin Patterson, and the entire Nourse Team are a welcome addition to the Mighty Family. They join a group of new car dealers enjoying the benefit of centralized distribution through Mighty. We’re extremely proud to have Nourse representing our products and inventory management service in Southern Ohio.”
