AutohausAZ Celebrates 30 Years of Continued Success
AutohausAZ has endured the test of time and celebrates its 30-year anniversary of continued
success and growth as a large Internet-based auto parts retailer.
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) October 28, 2009 -- AutohausAZ, a large Internet-based auto parts retailer distributing
OEM parts worldwide for European and Asian cars, recently announced its 30th year celebration of continued
success and growth. Over the past three decades, AutohausAZ has persevered, despite competitive pressures, an
ownership change, several economic downturns, the credit crunch and all those other growing pains faced by
small and medium-sized companies. AutohausAZ has achieved what few companies have been able to do in this
day and age - long-term and sustainable success - through its unique focus on quality parts, discount pricing, fast
& accurate shipping and superior customer service.
Since 1979, AutohausAZ has evolved from a local wholesaler providing European auto parts to Phoenix-based
repair shops to a thriving Internet-based auto parts retailer, distributing auto parts in more than 115 countries. Its
website, AutohausAZ.com, first launched in 1998 as a 5-page information site after a large competitor moved into
town and sales started to be adversely affected.
"Back in 1998, if we couldn't find a way to increase sales without significant costs and lowered margins,
AutohausAZ would've become just another statistic - another failed small company that fell victim to a larger
competitor. Luckily, the Internet provided that opportunity for us and it's been an overwhelming success," said
Carolyn Lefebvre, President/CEO of AutohausAZ.
In 2003, AutohausAZ built and launched its proprietary online auto parts catalog and changed its focus from
local, wholesale customers to the global retail market. By 2005, AutohausAZ had gone from a local 250-customer
market to hundreds of thousands of customers worldwide, with sales growth of 744% since the launch of
