Be a Part of Something Genuine

Genuine Parts Company began in 1928, when Carlyle Fraser purchased a single auto parts store in Atlanta, GA for $40,000. When selling the store, the previous owner remarked that “The automobile business has reached its peak” and was “on the way downhill.” Mr. Fraser kindly disagreed, and thus, GPC was born. Since that time, we worked hard to become the $18 billion industrial powerhouse that we are today.
