Sanel NAPA
Our History

It all started in 1920 when Benjamin Sanel and Edward Sanel Sr. founded Sanel Auto Wrecking Company in Concord, NH. Their vision was to supply customers in northern New England with the highest quality car parts in the automotive repair business.

Our Story


Our Beginnings

As the winds of change began to transform the transportation industry, father and son team Benjamin and Edward Sanel saw opportunity. The two men opened Sanel Auto Wrecking Company in Concord, selling new and used auto parts, scrap iron and metal to the local community.


Growth and Transition

Sanel added some 30 locations throughout the next two decades and became the dominant player in the industry. They teamed up to start one of the first buying groups, called Associated Parts.


Sanel Joins Forces with NAPA

Sanel partnered with NAPA Auto Parts to become Sanel NAPA. The company would continue to be independently owned and operated by the Sanel family. With that partnership came the opportunity to purchase eight additional NAPA stores bringing the company total to 49 locations.
