About APD

About Us

APD (Automotive Parts Distributors) is a privately run company that originated from its parent company of 1981 in Red Deer, Alberta.

The parent company started in a 5,000 sq/ft facility known as Red Deer Exhaust Specialties with a primarily focus on performance exhaust manufacturing and distribution. Brand names like Flo~Pro, Blue Bottle and Twister are a few of the well recognized trademarks. Please visit their website @ www.flopro.com.

To this day Red Deer Exhaust Specialties continues to manufacture and distribute performance exhaust products out of their 60,000sq/ft facility in Red Deer, AB to warehouse distributors across North America.

To enhance and grow the effectiveness of parts distribution to its clients, a new branch company was formed in 1993 called Automotive Parts Distributors (APD). This company opened auto parts distribution warehouses in Calgary AB, Edmonton AB and Saskatoon SK.

The primary focus of APD today has evolved into much more than distribution of quality/brand name auto parts to the company’s independent automotive shop customer base. APD is committed to ongoing investments in technology and processes to make us a leader in the industry related to on-line ordering, inventory management, warehouse systems and GPS tracking/deliveries. This insures that APD can deliver on its value proposition of the “Right Part Fast” to our clients.

Today, APD has also become an aftermarket industry leader by offering an exclusive comprehensive package of in-depth business enhancement services that focuses on building an APD shop client’s business net income. No where in North America does this type of shop business focus and offering exist.

To ensure our client’s success, APD has retained the best skilled people in the Canadian Aftermarket and designed comprehensive internal training processes and operating procedures second to none which totally focuses on serving APD shop clients.
