Color Compass Completes WD Co-Auto PBE Division Acquisition
Color Compass, a paint, body and equipment distributor in Western Canada, has announced the acquisition of WD Co-Auto’s PBE Division.
Based in Edmonton, Alberta, WD Co-Auto’s PBE Division caters to independent and member-dealer body shop customers across Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
Color Compass is WD Co-Auto’s preferred and exclusive supplier of body shop supplies.
