History of A-1 Truck Parts

For 60+ years, A-1 Truck Parts has been supplying customers with quality heavy-duty truck parts & services, with a strong emphasis on customer service.

It all started in the forties, with Al and Sam Rogers, who had a very strong background in auto parts and the automotive aftermarket, with a company called City Auto Parts. During this time, there was a market to reline brake bands as well as heavy-duty truck brake shoes. With this a mind, Industrial Friction became the new business name.

In the late sixties, after more than two decades of service to the industry, the decision was made to separate the heavy-duty truck from the auto parts. It took place when City Auto Parts moved to their Wilder Road location. That left the building open for Industrial Friction. By this time, Industrial Friction had added many product lines and needed the room to grow. With the new expansion came a new name - A-1 Truck Parts Inc.

As the years passed, and A-1 Truck Parts Inc. developed, they added another location in Alma, MI. Soon after the Alma location was up and running strong, the Rogers family was looking to retire. They wanted to sell the business to someone who would keep it growing strong.

In 1997, Auto-Wares Group of Companies purchased the business. Auto-Wares is a full-service, full-product line supplier of automotive and heavy-duty aftermarket parts. Auto-Wares' customer service ideals are to be their customer's best supplier. With this change, the name became A-1 Truck Parts. A-1 Truck Parts has the willingness to adjust, change and grow.

Over a ten year period, we have added locations, bringing the total to five. We have the programs and services to expand to whatever the market demands. We are a customer service oriented business, ever seeking better ways to serve our customers. Call or visit us in Alma, Bad Axe, Bay City, Muskegon or Pontiac today!

A-1 Truck is a member of Heavy Duty America buying group that ensures competitive pricing and complete availability of hard to get industrial, heavy-duty truck parts, & equipment. We are heavy-duty specialists with product knowledge, expertise, and the programs to back up our parts sales.
