In 1928, Carlyle Fraser founded GPC with the purchase of Motor Parts Depot in Atlanta, GA for $40,000. He renamed the parts store Genuine Parts Company. The original Genuine Parts Company store had annual sales of just $75,000, and only 6 employees.
For the next 50+ years, GPC in relationship with NAPA, grew rapidly as independent garages for car repair spread. From the beginning, GPC stressed swift, reliable service as a way to outflank the competition.
In the last 35+ years, GPC has continued to grow through the acquisition of other companies in the automotive industry, as well as the industrial, office and electrical industries.
Today Genuine Parts Company is a leading parts distributor with over 2,600 operations and approximately 37,500 employees.

She set up a time for an 'interview' which was with some analysts - although they never told me their position. Then I was asked for an interview with Manager and Director, lastly was asked to test and meet with a career counselor
