Coast Auto Supply was founded by Manuel Nepom in 1935 as one of the first retail auto supply stores on the west coast. Brothers Sam, Ben and Isadore Russell joined the company soon after World War II and added wholesale to the existing retail store in the mid-1950s. The retail store, which was a fixture in downtown Portland, was closed in 1980 to focus on wholesale trade. Barry Russell, our current President and CEO (and Manuel’s great-nephew), is the third generation leading this family-owned warehouse distributor.
We now supply major retailers, as well as independently owned auto supply stores, hardware stores, general retailers, C Store distributors and online retailers with a vast array of fast-moving auto supplies and accessories, bike accessories, marine accessories, and RV accessories.
We have over 5000 products to offer along with an extensive knowledge of the marketplace. This allows us to guide our customers in selecting the best mix of products to maximize shelf space and increase profits.
