Marshland Auto Parts opened in April, 1983 in the Moncton Industrial Park suppling Moncton, Dieppe, Riverview and New Brunswick with wholesale priced aftermarket automotive parts. Everything from brake pads and rotors to exhaust, manifolds, suspension parts and much more.
In just three years we had out grown the Moncton Industrial park location and in 1986 moved to Lewisville Road in the heart of Moncton next to Taylor Ford, the largest Ford dealership in Atlantic Canada. With just 3 employees in 1986 our business continued to grow and we continued to add to our product line with items like batteries, tools, and automotive lighting. Our motto “If can’t supply it, you don’t need it”.
In 1987 we expanded from just being a wholesale supplier and we opened our doors to the public. We added an outside salesperson who was responsible for the entire province of New Brunswick and the western half of Nova Scotia.
In 1999, still growing but knowing that Lewisville Road was the place for us, we purchased the larger Cash & Carry building across the street. By this time we had grown to 12 full time staff. In 2005, and realizing Greater Moncton was missing a good marine supply company, we partnered with Mermaid Marine and changed our name to Marshland Auto Parts & Marine.
Just three years later in 2008, we added a second location in Moncton, located at the Trinity Power Center area, and next to one of the largest Auto Body Shops in Maritime Canada, Trinity Collision Centre. Located at 1541 Mountain Road, one of the most traveled streets in Moncton, and now expanded hours and open seven days a week, business was good, both retail and wholesale.
In 2010, back on Lewisville Road, we moved one more time. We purchased the second largest building on Lewisville Road, beside Taylor Ford Lincoln and moved to 50 Lewisville Road. Now we had over 15,000 square feet of retail and warehouse space with a supply warehouse in the city and over 30 full time, knowledgeable staff members.
In 2016 we doubled the size of our Mountain Road location in the Trinity Auto Plaza. We now offer online, secure shopping for all of Canada. The future is looking bright!
