Company Description

Sector: Consumer Cyclical
Industry: Specialty Retail

Genuine Parts sells automotive parts (nearly two thirds of net sales) and industrial components.

The company sells car and truck parts to commercial and retail customers through roughly 9,800 stores worldwide, most of which are independently owned.

Its industrial unit, primarily operating under the Motion Industries banner in the United States, supplies bearings, power transmission, industrial automation, hydraulic, and pneumatic components to maintenance, repair, and original equipment manufacturer clients.

SWOT Analysis


Genuine Parts is a trusted brand with a large scale distribution system and convenient retail locations. Their reputation for parts availability and fast delivery sets NAPA apart from smaller competitors.

Superior levels of component availability give a huge advantage to GPC. To replicate what the company has built over the decades would require an investment that keeps competitors away (moat).


A much higher proportion of independent versus company-owned auto-parts stores caps margin potential (albeit with lower capital needs).


Genuine Parts continues to expand into new markets. A high average vehicle age, increased driving per car, and other economic trends favor GPC.


Competition (including independent stores) is always a factor that compels a successful company such as GPC to stay on top of margins, inventory, service, etc. GPC must continue improving and staying a step ahead of the competition.
