Chicagoland's Premier Powertrain Supplier

Family-owned & operated
with over 30 years experience

Home: Welcome

Parts Direct was started in 2013 to provide the highest quality parts and service to the NW suburbs of Chicago. We search high and low for the best parts with the lowest warranty rates in the industry.

We hate comebacks and we know you do too.

We have been in the automotive parts business all of our lives. Bob started in the radiator business in the late 80s just as radiators were moving from a recore/rebuild model to an all new model. Mike started delivering auto parts in college and quickly learned pricing, inventory management, and operations.


As fellow small business owners, we know that every penny and minute counts.

Let's chat. We want to know how we can help you and your bottom line.

Meet the Team


Louie the Shop Dog

Chief Nap Officer

Louie makes sure Bob and Mike are on top of their game everyday. Since they are usually doing an amazing job servicing their customers, Louie gets to take a lot of naps. He also personally inspects the delivery drivers everyday to make sure they are up to the task of delivering your parts. You can be assured that every part you receive has gotten Louie's approval.



Chief Talker

Bob lives and breathes auto parts. As Chief Talker, Bob is educating our customers on a daily basis on the quality parts we supply, listening to your ongoing needs, and brainstorming how solve those trickier issues. Bob talks with the leading suppliers in the industry to make sure we are supplying only the best parts at the best prices.

When not working, Bob can be found tinkering with a boat, a snowmobile, or a random appliance.



Chief Nerd

In his role as Chief Nerd, Mike makes sure the operations are running at their highest levels to deliver the parts you need quickly.  Mike makes sure all our IT, inventory and pricing, marketing, accounting, and ordering are optimized to serve you.

Mike can be found snowmobiling in the winter and on a golf course in the summer.
