Genuine Parts Company is a service organization engaged in the distribution of automotive replacement parts, industrial replacement parts, office products, and electrical/electronic materials. The company's four divisions operate primarily under the trade names NAPA, Motion Industries, S.P. Richards Company, and EIS.
The company began in 1928 as a single auto parts store founded by Atlanta entrepreneur Carlyle Fraser. By the 1960's, the company was a nationwide distributor of parts for cars, trucks, tractors, power boats, and power tools. Diversification and a series of acquisitions over the next few decades would shape the modern Genuine Parts Company.
Genuine Parts Company's metro Atlanta footprint includes the company's corporate and Automotive Parts Group headquarters on Circle 75 Parkway in Cumberland/Galleria, their Office Products Group (S.P. Richards Company) headquarters in Smyrna, and their Electrical/Electronic Materials Group (EIS) headquarters at Parkwood Point in Cumberland/Galleria.

Retail opportunities are available at numerous NAPA Auto Parts stores throughout the metro area.
