About Us

The Parts House Inc. was started by Harold B. Garrett on April 1, 1972 as a family business. The current owner, Steve Fransene, was his father's first employee.

The business eventually grew to 2 retail auto parts stores and a warehouse. In 1993, the assembly part of the business moved to their current 23,000 sq. ft. location at 343 S. Kellogg St. in Galesburg, IL. The auto parts stores were sold in 2003 to allow the business to focus on assembly and distribution of mechanical push-pull and brake cables and controls for heavy duty industry.

Steve's sister, Teddi Shipp, joined the business in 1979, and now handles the billing and accounting for the business. Steve's son, Jason Fransene, joined the business in 1992, sweeping floors. Jason is now the Vice President of Sales for The Parts House Inc.

Harold B. Garrett retired in 1989 and passed away in 2009, but his family continues the tradition of excellence and service set by him in 1972.

The Parts House Inc currently employs 4 additional specialists, many of whom have been with the company over 10 years. Employees receive on-the-job training and are factory trained and certified by ORSCHELN.
