President and founder
In march 1979 Mr.Marc Laroche founded MARC LAROCHE AUTO PARTS INC. It’s beginnings were modest selling approximately 10 vehicles. Our goal was to serve repair shops and consumers with good quality used vehicles parts at more affordable prices. Business evoled well and in 1981, we became a member of Action Group which is a network of intercom systems regrouping about thirty salvage yards in the Montreal area, permitting us to locate missing parts not avaible in our own inventory. In 1982, we became members of ARPAC (Car & Truck Salvage Association).
In 1982, we employed just 3 employees, by 1985 the number of employees passed to 10. Our free delivery service throughout Quebec and Ontario is what distinguighed us from other salvage yards. In 1983, the business is computerized. During that same year Mr.Laroche founded M.L.P. AUTO INC., a company specializing in the sale of wrecked cars. In 1990, we installed the Hollander computer system know in the car industry as the best interchange system for car and truck parts.
Today MARC LAROCHE AUTO PARTS INC. is very well known throughout the automotive sector specializing in used parts for vehicles from 1990 through to 1997 models. Our inventory is well over 1,000,000 parts. We now have 20 staff members to serve you and our motto has remained, “durable parts of comparable quality to new at the lowest price”.
In 1997, Internet has become another of our work tools, permitting us to offer our services to a greater number of consumers from one continent to another.
