GERMANTOWN, Tenn., March 28, 2018 – The Automotive Distribution Network continues to grow the Parts Plus brand globally with the signing of Westworld Auto Parts LLC, the group’s first member to serve the Guatemalan market in Central America. Further expanding its international footprint, the Network also recently welcomed its ninth Parts Plus Mexico distributor into membership: Monterey-based Accesorios y Refacciones Martinez.
“The Network proudly welcomed Westworld Auto Parts and Accesorios y Refacciones Martinez into membership at our recent national convention at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando,” said David Prater, Network president. “Throughout the convention, I stressed that global communication is the key to the group’s ongoing success, and our latest member signings in these thriving, vibrant markets reflect that mission.”
With its large, three-showroom main warehouse based in Guatemala City, the national capital of Guatemala, Westworld is a European-parts specialist, importing products from the U.S. into Central America from the port of Miami, and serving the area’s growing market with 12 motorcycle delivery drivers.

Accesorios y Refacciones Martinez is a second-generation company that has built its reputation over 41 years in business, serving customers via four warehouses complete with storefronts, plus one distribution center, all located in Monterrey. Brothers Roberto and Javier Martinez today help carry on the family tradition as director of operations and director of purchasing, respectively, and business-partner Leonel Gonzalez serves as sales manager.
