Roger Williams

Williams Auto Parts is a 4th generation family business, located at 127 Detroit Ave., Portland Indiana, has grown from an automotive repair shop to one of the largest used auto parts suppliers and salvage yards in the midwest by shipping parts nationwide. Roger & Rosemary Williams established the business in 1951 in their home garage and soon moved to their current location on Detroit Ave. Roger & Rosemary's son Ed made it a family team by bringing transmission service and repair to the business. During these early years automobile salvage and wrecking started to grow. Upon Roger's retirement son Ed and wife Kay took over the business and continued to grow the used parts side of the business while maintaining a full service repair shop. Today, Rocky and wife Lisa Williams have expanded the salvage parts business by focusing on customer service, maintaining late model inventory, and developing systems to ensure parts are shipped on a timely baisis. Also, their son Heath, the 4th generation, is now learning the steps to continue the long standing tradition here at Williams Auto Parts of customer service and providing quality used parts from hands on experience with the valued customer.
