Ideal Auto Parts was founded on February 1, 1984.
Original a partnership between eight shareholders, the company specialized in trailer hitches, wheel covers, hard parts, running boards, and other body shop supplies. Eventually in the 90s, accessories and hard parts were replaced by body shop supplies.
In 1998, the company was purchased from the original shareholders by Keith Koroll and Robin Langridge. In 2013, the company name was changed to Ideal Auto Paint Solutions to better reflect the business current specialties.
In 2020, Keith assumed full ownership of the company.
We always get our customers the right products and the right price, delivered at the right time, while striving to bring value to their businesses.
