While the Polish passenger car market has experienced a significant growth in recent years, the development of the automotive parts aftermarket has faltered. The distribution chain is cluttered and inefficient. The market is fragmented and no dominant market player has emerged. This case study describes an attempt by a group of distributors from Southern Poland to become the number one market participants as defined by market share. The effort is achieved through consolidation and subsequent acquisitions. While the initiative is broadly successful, the group experiences many operational challenges.
