Mighty Auto Parts is celebrating its 60th year of business, according to a press release.
The company was founded in 1963 by Dallas “Dick” Wallace, who sold tire repair products out of his Volkswagen Beetle. The company’s products consisted of tire repair and ignition products, primarily sold to small shops in the Washington, D.C., and Maryland area.
Now, the company offers “OE underhood and undercar replacement parts” and has 100 locally-owned franchisees. They partner with over 15,000 automotive service providers in the United States.
“It is a great honor to be a part of an organization with such a rich history,” stated Mighty Auto Parts President and CEO Josh D’Agostino. “Our franchises have been instrumental in Mighty's success for 60 years, and they will continue to inspire our innovation, diversification, and competitive spirit in the future.”
