Founded in 1994 by a team of two, with a single shipping container of automotive inventory, our goal was to make a significant difference in the motor industry by supplying aftermarket products that offer unrivalled range and quality.

We worked with manufacturers who could deliver exceptional products at a competitive price.  We also invested in partners who were as uncompromising towards quality as we were.

Grandmark now engages in direct supplier agreements and has long-standing relationships with most of the original equipment manufacturers (OES) and aftermarket manufacturers that we deal with.  These relationships ensure that Grandmark supplies automotive, aftermarket parts of the highest specifications at the most competitive prices.
