NAPA was founded in 1925 to meet America's growing need for a world-class auto parts distribution system. By providing excellent customer service for more than 90 years, NAPA has become the industry leader.
NAPA's strength is unrivaled, with 6,000 NAPA AUTO PARTS stores, 62 Distribution Centers, 16,000 affiliated NAPA AutoCare repair facilities, 450,000 parts in inventory every day, and more ASE-Certified Parts Professionals than anyone in the industry.
In addition to being America's first choice for automotive parts and accessories, NAPA is also a leading supplier of specialty parts and equipment for the collision repair, heavy-duty truck, and industrial markets. And NAPA tools and equipment set the industry standard for quality and value. NAPA serves automotive consumers through the UAP division in Canada, Auto Todo in Mexico and with other locations throughout the Caribbean and Latin America.
NAPA's Unique Strength
One of the unique strengths of the NAPA system is the combination of national buying power, training resources, and distribution muscle with local ownership and commitment. Most NAPA AUTO PARTS stores and all NAPA AutoCare repair facilities are local, independently owned and operated businesses that have deep roots in their communities. NAPA people combine the best attributes of "Fortune 500" professionalism with the hometown values of honesty, hard work, familiarity with local needs, pride of place, and pride of ownership. NAPA people refer to this unique combination of "Main Street" people, tradition, and values with "Wall Street" training, resources, and buying power as "the NAPA Spirit." It is a primary reason that NAPA has grown from a tiny association of "can-do" industry pioneers to become the industry leader. The NAPA Spirit is something that no national chain or stand-alone local store can duplicate.
The NAPA Spirit is one reason why more people choose NAPA than any other parts supplier.
Delivering on Our Promises
The NAPA Spirit is backed up by some very tangible assets that earn the respect and loyalty of NAPA customers every day:
- World-class products that meet or exceed original equipment standards
- Expert and service-oriented people
- The industry's largest inventory
- Very competitive prices
- NAPA's unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction
NAPA has long been known in the industry as "the professional's choice." No one understands the business better, and no one can match NAPA's products, services, and commitment. NAPA's service to professional technicians is the benchmark to which the rest of the industry aspires.
NAPA is also the leading choice for do-it-yourselfers. From talented amateur mechanics to automotive novices, people choose NAPA to get access to the same expertise, courtesy, and quality parts that the pros count on.
Let us earn your business. Make NAPA your choice for all of your automotive parts and service needs.
Another characteristic of the NAPA Spirit is the desire to contribute to the communities that have supported NAPA and enriched the lives of NAPA people for more than 90 years. NAPA's national organization regularly donates time, money, and resources to organizations including the United Way, the American Red Cross, and Habitat For Humanity. But NAPA's community service goes much deeper than that.
Because most NAPA AUTO PARTS stores and NAPA AutoCare Centers are locally owned, they are deeply rooted in the individual communities that they serve. Thus, NAPA's community service is diverse, committed, and extensive. NAPA people support their local communities all across North America, contributing to local schools, children's causes, hospitals, blood banks, medical research, food banks, shelters, sporting organizations, youth clubs, and other community and national organizations, charities, and causes.
