Started by Pat Gorman in 1955, Pat’s Auto Parts Ltd. was originally operated out of a refurbished red and white Dodge Fargo school bus.
Pat travelled throughout the Peace River Country in Alberta and British Columbia developing a loyal clientele that watched for Pat to visit and offer products such as tires, lubricants and common automotive parts.
Building on this unique business model, Pat opened two stores in Grande Prairie. Dan Gorman, Pat’s son, spent many years helping with the family business eventually taking over the business when Pat retired.
Dan continued to grow the business partnering with Kenton Switzer in 2004 to take Pat’s Auto to the next level. In 2006, Pat’s Auto opened a new store in Dawson Creek B.C. expanding the trading area.
Dan retired from the business in 2008 turning the reins over to Kenton to continue with the Pat’s Auto legacy. 2011 saw the opening of the next full service parts store in growing Fort St. John, B.C.
