About Us

Headquartered in Rockford, Illinois, MPEC is a corporate holding company of strategically aligned businesses located across the Midwest. We are an economic engine throughout the regions we serve, and strive to provide an exceptional experience for our customers, employees and the communities we operate within. At the heart of all of our companies is a dedication to service and an unfailing belief in the Golden Rule.

From a single NAPA Auto Parts location founded in 1938, MPEC has grown to manage interests that range from a regional leader in the automotive aftermarket and major distribution center to on-site parts supplier. Continuing in the spirit of entrepreneurism out of which we were born, MPEC seeks consistent, strategic growth within all our endeavors.



We have chosen to specialize in the business of distribution, by offering only the highest quality products and service. Our objective is to be recognized as the Company that provides the finest customer service, quality products and employment experience wherever we locate with a standard of professionalism second to none.


We demonstrate our beliefs most in the way we treat each other and by the example we set for one another. In all our interactions with our customers, vendors, business associates and co-workers, we deal with others as we would have them deal with us.


Our greatest asset and the key to our success, is our people. We believe that each of us needs a sense of dignity, pride and satisfaction in what we do. Because satisfying our customers depends on the united efforts of many, we are most effective when we work together cooperatively, respecting each other’s contribution and importance.


We succeed when every decision is based on a clear understanding of and belief in what we do combined with sound financial planning. We expect to achieve a fair and reasonable profit to ensure the prosperity of the company, and to offer long-term benefits to our customers, our vendors, our employees and our owners.
