Novak Auto Parts - The Early Years

Novak Auto Parts, Inc., has been serving the tri-state area for over 60 years. Family owned and operated, the second and third generations are working side by side to provide superior customer service, quality auto parts and huge cost savings to their customers.

Roger, owner of Novak Auto Parts, has over 35 years' experience in the salvage industry. His parents started the business back in 1958 at their home. In 1971 the business was moved a few miles to its current location on 20 acres at 1640 Route 68 in New Sewickley Township. Roger has seen the progression from a few hundred cars back then to the 1700 cars, trucks, vans and SUV's currently in inventory. In 1990, he took initiative to computerize his inventory…the first salvage yard in the area to do so. Today, along with his children and wife, he remains just as forward-thinking. His family works hard to keep abreast of new technology: electric cars, gas powered cars, environmental advances, etc. so that Novak Auto Parts remains on the cutting edge of the salvage industry.

With an excellent crew of highly skilled dismantlers, knowledgeable salespeople, and courteous, careful delivery drivers, Roger could not be more proud of his team. He considers everyone working at Novak Auto Parts to be family and appreciates their hard work and dedication in putting the customer first. People make all the difference in the world. We believe you'll see that first hand in your experience at Novak Auto Parts.

With our 20 acre inventory, there’s a good chance we have what you need right here in stock. However, if what you are looking for is a hard-to-find item, don’t worry. Novak Auto Parts is linked to thousands of salvage yards across the nation. And just as important, we can get those parts within 2 business days from other salvage yards as far away as Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, and Michigan. We can get you what you need, when you need it and at a price you’ll love! Let us take the stress out of your car problems.
