Since our humble beginnings in 1968 with only eight employees squeezed into a tiny building in Sharpsburg, PA, Equiparts has seen tremendous growth. In 2015, we consolidated all operations into one big warehouse located in Oakmont, PA. Our customers are now located all over the northeast, and also across the U.S. Until very recently, we had 41 employees, including both inside and outside sales representatives. But that number has changed because we have added a new chapter to our story.
We are pleased to announce that Equiparts has expanded again with a new, out of state location. We have acquired Parts Unlimited Inc. of Manassas, Virginia, and are very excited to be working with them under the Equiparts name. This brings our total number of employees to 56. With our combined resources, we can serve even more customers in the eastern U.S., with expanded inventory and customer service.
For our Equiparts customers, this change will be unnoticeable. For our new Parts Unlimited customers, there will be an adjustment period that we are working hard to make as seamless as possible. We look forward to providing all of you with the repair parts, fixtures, and tools you need, and the outstanding service you deserve.
