COOLDRIVE TO PURCHASE CALOFFROAD
A HOA has been signed for CoolDrive Auto Parts to acquire the leading suspension company
CalOffroad is an Australian importer for a number of high-end offroad suspension brands and is a direct importer of leading suspension brand Fox Shocks as well as a major distributor for Bilstein, all of which will soon be available from CoolDrive.
“This acquisition of CalOffroad will strengthen our existing offroad and four-wheel-drive program,” CoolDrive Auto Parts Chief Executive Officer, John Blanchard, said.
“As a business, we already have a strong footprint in this market with our own Hulk 4×4 brand, and taking CalOffroad into the CoolDrive fold will definitely strengthen our presence and allow us to continue to deliver on our customers’ wants and needs.
“CalOffroad has long been considered to be at the forefront of offroad product development locally and with the four-wheel drive market continuing to grow popularity in Australia, CoolDrive now has even more quality products to offer to consumers.”
Owner of CalOffroad, Cal Goodman, is excited
for the future of the business once the acquisition is official.
“We are really looking forward to becoming
an official part of the CoolDrive Auto Parts family,” Cal said.
“Like CalOffroad, the team at CoolDrive truly understand what consumers want and need from their offroad products, and they have the knowledge and industry presence to take the business to the next level across Australia and New Zealand.
“The opportunities are fantastic and we can’t wait for what is to come.”
Available from CalOffroad – and shortly from CoolDrive – is a full range of offroad suspension products including lift kits and accessories for four-wheel-drives including the Ford Ranger, Holden Colorado, Isuzu D-MAX and MUX, Jeep Wrangler, Mazda BT-50, Mitsubishi Triton, Nissan Navara and Patrol, Toyota HiLux and LandCruiser and the Volkswagen Amarok.
A highlight of the CalOffroad product range is “the only true three-inch suspension system built to their design by the Fox factory and Bilstein in Germany.”
