AutoZone Inc. announced a five-year supplier agreement with JD Byrider, making AutoZone the preferred vendor and “first call” for parts at JD Byrider’s 170 corporate and franchised-owned dealer locations across the United States.

The agreement, built on a 15-year relationship with JD Byrider, demonstrates AutoZone’s growing presence as the superior parts supplier in the “Buy Here, Pay Here” industry and its growth in serving the dealer market, according to an AutoZone press release.

“AutoZone has distinguished itself as a trusted partner to our commercial customers with our exceptional customer service,” says Phil Daniele, senior vice president, commercial for AutoZone. “JD Byrider’s confidence in AutoZone’s products, service and dependability has led to this long-term agreement and maximizes their opportunity for further growth.”

“Our team focuses on reconditioning a vehicle, not just repairing a vehicle,” says Tom Welter, vice president of JD Byrider. “This relationship and access — combined with AutoZone’s understanding of our industry and the JDB business — offers huge benefits to our dealers and employees and helps ensure that our customers get the most reliable reconditioned vehicles on the road today.”
