Maccess currently trades from 14 UK locations, four of these Maccess branches are located near to the five trading sites of ADS.
Maccess supplies to a wide range of customers, including factors and accessory shops, workshops and dealers, petrol forecourts and a range of national/key accounts. ADS supply mainly factors and accessory shops.
Both businesses have complementary ranges of products, including components, accessory and retail products.
In a statement IAD says: "The combination of these two businesses offers all customers a broader range of products from which good suppliers can benefit from increased sales opportunities; and through business growth there will be medium and long term opportunities for employees.
"Whilst a closer integration of these two businesses will evolve in time, for the moment the ADS and Maccess branch businesses will continue to trade as normal. In due course, the combination of Maccess merged with ADS will create a stronger partner for both customers and suppliers."
