Pep Boys, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Icahn Automotive Group LLC,
announced it has acquired Newpark Auto Service in Newark, California.
“Newpark is an excellent addition to our existing store base in the San
Francisco region, a target market for ongoing growth as we expand our
national service center network,” said James Healy, Senior Vice
President of Corporate Development and Strategy for Icahn Automotive.
“With its ideal location within a busy shopping center, and in an area
that is expanding, we see great potential to grow the shop’s business.”
