Our History

In 1992 Greg Welch, with a background in after market parts identified a need to combine quality service with an extensive range of after market parts for European cars and so began Welch Auto Parts. To this day this core approach is unchanged. The Right Part – On Time – First Time. With a desire to ensure a complete of range of European parts in 1998 Welch Auto Parts acquired the business of Volks Merc Spares followed by the acquisition of BM Autoteile in 2004, and the Caravelle business in 2013.
