Our Story

Back in 1977, Jeff Stahl began his career repairing amplifiers, tuners, and reel-to-reels. Over the next 9 years he honed his skill as a craftsman, businessman, and weekend sound engineer. It wasn’t until 1986 that he expanded out on his own and enter the market for replacement audio components. Armed with a desk, a telephone, and a desire to provide affordable electronic parts and accessories to audio/video enthusiasts he went to work on the second floor of an old dusty automotive plant in Dayton, Ohio.
In 1986 Parts Express was born and hasn’t stopped growing since. Due to Stahl’s hard work and intimate knowledge of the audio/video industry Parts Express had outgrown its surroundings and relocated to the current Springboro, Ohio facility in 1997. As the internet developed so did Parts Express by offering speaker specifications and product images for easy online browsing at parts-express.com in addition to its full color catalog. Less than a year later a full catalog of products was available for purchase on the now Internet Retailer Top 500 website with fully detailed product pages and do-it-yourself resources to provide the materials and knowledge any enthusiast could need to further their passion.
With its focus remaining on providing value to loyal customers, Parts Express expanded its operation again in 2007 to become the Parts Express you know today with over 15,000 of the finest audio and video parts and accessories for quality home and professional installations, all at highly discounted prices. Though the days of stat cameras and wax page catalog layouts have come and gone one thing remains central to Parts Express and that is providing quality electronics at affordable prices to you, the customer.
