Fisher Auto Parts Celebrates 85th Anniversary
Oct. 17, 2014—Fisher Auto Parts is turning 85.
A founding member of Federated Auto Parts, Fisher Auto Parts has served both installer and do-it-yourself customers since the company was founded in 1929 by Blair Coiner, grandfather of Bo Fisher, the company’s current CEO.
In 1929, with the nation facing the Great Depression, Coiner founded his company. By 1941, the company had grown to 18 employees and serviced approximately 800 wholesale-only accounts.
After expanding to 60 stores and 300 employees in 1983, the company’s name was changed to Fisher Auto Parts. Art Fisher continued to foster the company’s dedication to providing professional installers with quality service that was second to none, growing the business to nearly 300 stores in 14 states.
“We want to congratulate the entire Fisher Auto Parts team on 85 years of serving its valued customers,” Rusty Bishop, CEO of Federated Auto Parts, said in a release. “As one of Federated’s founding members, Fisher Auto Parts has been actively involved in the growth and success of Federated since day one. Fisher has held true to its mission of providing customers with outstanding service, brand name quality parts at competitive prices, and the fastest, most accurate delivery service.”
