CarQuest Auto Parts is locally owned and operated by Bob and Larry Hoeszle. The brothers have been in business together since 1961 when they opened the Sudsy Dudsy Laundromat. They made a decision in the Fall of 2013 to purchase a building that had previously been ran as an auto parts store. Remodeling began and the store opened in January 2014.
The brothers have had years of experience combined with a love for mechanics that led them to dedicating themselves to providing the area with quality products at a fair price while maintaining outstanding customer service. Bob has been a farmer for several years with a degree in mechanics and years of experience working on farm equipment. Larry has served as the Diesel Mechanics instructor at WVC for 38 years.
Larry also stated “ It is our staff that makes our business such a success. They are friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable”. The store has three full-time employees in addition to the owners. Brent Zenthoefer has been in parts sales for 11 years and has spent 6 years as a technician. Jacie Spencer has several years in auto parts not only at CarQuest but a previous company as well and has a strong knowledge of Heavy Duty vehicle systems.
