George Lane opened a small automotive parts store in 1964 when he grew tired of waiting weeks for parts to arrive from a mail-order catalog. George’s store specialized in racing and high-performance auto parts.
The company quickly grew and soon had a separate wholesale division and warehouse.
Today, the Lane Automotive showroom is a 10,000-square-foot building that was made for performance enthusiasts. The showroom is located within the company headquarters in Watervliet, Michigan.
All orders are backed by a 350,000-square-foot on-site distribution center stocking over 100,000 different part numbers.
Lane Automotive became a household name in racing circles in the state of Michigan.
George Lane passed away in 2021 but his sons continue with the business and recently expanded the business to add 138 new jobs in the community.
Lane Automotive maintains a corporate office in Watervliet, Michigan.
