NAPA (NATIONAL AUTO PARTS ASSOCIATION) was founded in 1925 in the United States and has since then developed into America's leader in the after-market auto parts business. In the U.S. there are 6200 NAPA AUTO PARTS stores, 69 Distribution Centers and more than 9000 affiliated NAPA Auto Care repair facilities.
NAPA is the market leader in the Caribbean too and is penetrating more and more into the Latin American market.
In the year of 2004, NAPA Aruba integrated with its sister stores located on the neighbor islands of Bonaire and Curacao managed under the same ownership. The NAPA brand is recognized as the quality leader in the automotive parts business operating with deep roots in their community. In addition to being the first choice for automotive parts and accessories, NAPA is also e leading supplier of specialty parts and equipment for the collision repair, heavy duty and tools which set the industry standard for quality and value. NAPA Aruba has two stores, located in Shaba which is on the north part and Cura Cabai on the south part of the island.
Hard work, dedication and an incessant striving for professionalism of the local owners and employees were and are the cause that NAPA Aruba could develop into the island's preferential shopping place for the many repair shops, dealer’s mechanics and a host of local car owners. Modern purchase techniques, and up to date computer equipment at the stores, together with training facilities for their employees will guarantee that NAPA AUTO PARTS, maintain its current leading position, and in the future.
This unique mixture of local dedication, tradition, enthusiasm, service and training with American know-how and sharp buying techniques is being called the "NAPA Spirit" by the NAPA people. It is the foremost reason why NAPA could grow from a tiny shop of "can-do" pioneers to become the 'auto parts' sales leader on the island.
The "NAPA Spirit" is backed up by some obvious advantages that NAPA customers can appreciate 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.
* Unrivaled distribution expertise.
* NAPA's unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction.
This makes NAPA known as "the professional's choice". NAPA's service to professional technicians is unrivaled and is the benchmark to which the rest of the industry aspires. But also between do-it-yourselfers NAPA is the leading choice, they choose NAPA because they know they get the same expertise, courtesy and quality parts that the pros count on.
