Vaca Valley Auto Parts Established 1974
Vaca Valley Auto Parts was formed in 1974. The corporation was started by 3 men, Jack Martin, Richard Black, and William Suter as a closely held, private corporation. In 1975, after Black and Suter left the corporation, the Martin family purchased Suter's and Black’s shares and Vaca Valley Auto Parts became a family owned Corporation.
From the beginning our goal was simple, to be “THE BEST” auto parts store in the region. The company’s goal has not changed. All of our efforts go into being the best and as such, we have grown every year since our formation and intend to continue that growth. We expect the same attitude from our employees and encourage them to be a part of our growth.
In 1981, Trevor Martin joined the company and worked his way through many positions to become a shareholder and today he is the President. His leadership has continued to provide Vaca Valley with the growth needed to maintain our position as the number one wholesale supplier in our region. His development of our computer system now provides us constant, online service with our retail, wholesale, and installer base resulting in the highest service level in company history. The technology we use provides our customers with exclusive knowledge bases and links, available in our region only through Vaca Valley, that help locate “Hard to Find” parts.
In 2002 Vaca Valley Auto Parts became a member of the Federated Auto Parts team. This association has helped us to bring quality, premium, and name brand auto parts to our customers at very competitive prices and extremely high order fill rates. In addition to the marketing and inventory assistance they offer, Federated provides the quality and service that we are committed to.
Our goals as a company still remain the same. Simply, “The Best”. We feel our service levels and order fill rates are the best, and with over 100,000 name brand parts in stock, we ship more parts than any of the competitors in our region.
Vaca Valley Auto Parts is proud to offer our service to everyone, from the individual “Do-it yourselfer” to the largest professional installers. We also cover fleets, both large and small, industrial, and marine. Our staff of ASE Certified Professional Counterpersons can solve any auto parts need you may have.
