Marcor was founded in 1977 as Northern Performance, a retail operation, we quickly expanded into wholesale distribution, forming Marcor Automotive.
Throughout our history Marcor has followed many trends, but over time we narrowed our focus to certain key specialties, those being suspension, braking and under-car performance in general. Springs, shock absorbers, sway bars, brake rotors and pads, brake lines and cat-back exhaust systems formed the backbone of our business. Since 2012 Marcor has been aggressively growing our business, adding new product lines in all categories including light truck.
Our line card is now rounded out with vendors specializing in interior and exterior accessories, car care products, under-hood performance, wheels and wheel hardware, lighting and much more. While the North American car and truck market remains a cornerstone of our business, we have built a strong following among the offshore auto brand enthusiasts. The Asian car companies are a natural component of our efforts, and we have enjoyed tremendous success catering to European brands such as BMW, Volkswagen/Audi and Mercedes Benz.
We choose our vendor partners strategically, and our commitment to them is comprehensive. We are dedicated to providing strong inventory levels to our customers at competitive prices. Our inside and outside sales team are all knowledgeable automotive enthusiasts who are eager to promote the brands we carry.
Sharing space with WeatherTech Canada, a brand that Marcor pioneered in Canada, we operate from two locations totalling almost 100,000 square feet in Burlington, Ontario, just west of Toronto. Our North Service Rd location houses Marcor’s WD operations and performance brands, while the Walkers Line location houses Northern Performance (our retail division, which includes a full service installation facility) and WeatherTech Canada’s warehouse and distribution.
