The company has been growing since it began in Laval, Quebec in 1997. With its inception in Montreal, growth throughout the province of Quebec and expansion to Ontario, the company now has 17 employees, most of them on the road representing OEM dealers and serving bodyshop customers. The company now enters western Canada with aims to continue serving autobody shops with all brands, from Acura to Volvo. As a ProgiParts supplier since 2009, Uniparts will offer new OEM supplier choices for existing ProgiParts users in Alberta.
