About Us / History
In 1986, Tetsuji Ideta, Melvin Sasaki, and a handful of other automotive industry veterans came together to start Pacific Jobbers Warehouse on Kahai Street in Kalihi Kai. Prior to the start of Pacific Jobbers Warehouse, Tetsuji owned a small parts store called Delta Auto Parts since the 1960’s. Melvin came from an auto parts warehouse distributor called Automotive Service.
The other original investors came from the auto repair, tool sales, and wholesale auto parts industries. They all saw a need in the industry and started with one brand, Bendix brakes. They focused on customer service from day one and steadily grew the business.
From one brand of auto parts and 4 employees in 1986, Pacific Jobbers Warehouse has grown to over 80 employees with more than 90 brands of products. In 2011, Pacific Jobbers Warehouse expanded their service and merged with Aloha Otto Parts in Kahului, Maui, which was renamed Maui Auto Parts.
