Autopro was established in 1982 and with nearly 90 stores Australia wide, is the largest independently owned automotive parts and accessories retailer/reseller in Australia.
The longevity of the business combined with consistent marketing activity means that the brand has become very well known in the Australian marketplace. Autopro is part of the Automotive Brands Group (ABG) which includes other franchise groups such as Autobarn, Midas, ABS, Sprint Auto Parts and Opposite Lock. The combined ABG brands represent over 450 outlets.
The Automotive parts and accessories market continues to enjoy strong and sustained growth, in contrast to and defying other retail trends and Autopro continues to grow its share of this dynamic, fun, and broad market. Autopro stores pride themselves on being independently and locally owned and operated, protecting the economic diversity of local communities. With strong growth across Australia, we are always on the lookout for passionate and motivated people to become Franchisees. Many current Autopro Franchisees have found the business so rewarding they now own more than one Autopro.
Autopro is a robust franchise system providing strong support to its franchisees across all management operations disciplines. This ranges from product buying, warehousing, distribution, retail operations support and business marketing.
Autopro operates a comprehensive national marketing program encompassing T.V, radio, letterbox, sponsorships and significant online and social media activity. In addition, franchisees are provided a dedicated Local Store Marketing resource. Autopro is moving with the times rolling out exciting technological developments to streamline how we sell to and communicate with our customers.

This allows our franchisees to concentrate on working on their business not just in their business.
