MADISON, Wis. & LACOLLE, Quebec—(BUSINESS WIRE)—July 21, 2006— Madison, WI-based Parts Now! announced today it has acquired the Canadian firm Pieces Express, Inc. Based in Lacolle, Quebec, Pieces Express is a leading Canadian distributor of laser printer parts. The acquisition enables Parts Now!, which is already the largest supplier of laser printer parts in North America, to expand its product offering in the Canadian marketplace.

"We see this as an intelligent combination of two well-regarded companies," stated Kevin Guy, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Parts Now!. "We expect the combined sales of Pieces Express and Parts Now! will allow us to become the industry's largest supplier in Canada inside the next 18 months," he predicted.

"The acquisition of Pieces Express leverages the strengths of both companies," said Clifford Peterson, Principal at Banc of America Capital Investors.
