May 6, 2015— ASSUMPTION, IL : Koehl Enterprises is growing again through the purchase of a NAPA Auto Parts retailer. This addition broadens the scope of services provided to Koehl’s existing agricultural customers, while providing an entire new segment of automotive customers. The storefront will be headquartered in Assumption.
“Expanding the scope of Koehl Enterprises has always been our intention,” says Jeff Fjelstul, Koehl Enterprises General Manager. “The overlap of this acquisition benefits our customers and our team while pushing us to grow into a market we already know and love. The integrity, experience and catalog offering provided by NAPA is outstanding. We are excited to grow and learn from this partnership.”
The Assumption NAPA location, 302 S Business 51, is stocked with floor to ceiling automotive inventory. Existing agricultural parts and equipment are available in breadth. The previous NAPA building will still be open for automotive service and maintenance, NAPA AutoCare. Building expansions to the storefront are in the planning stages.
An open house, antique tractor and car show (Acres & Asphalt) will be held at the store front June 12, 2015 from 3p-8p. Tractors, trucks, classic cars, hot rods, motorcycles and more will be on display from 5p-8p with winners of each class being announced at 7p. To register a vehicle, visit www.acres-asphalt.com. Acres & Asphalt is a free event, open to the public, offering free food, prizes and special weekend only NAPA deals.
