SSF HISTORY

SSF HISTORY

SSF has a proud history of serving the European Auto Repair Industry. We owe our 40+ years of success to our team of dedicated employees, customers and suppliers. SSF's employees have played a very important role in our success and many team members have been with us for more than 10, 20 and even 30 years and we take great pride in how many have made SSF their careers and part of their extended family. We thank and honor them for their trusting and loyal dedication.

We'd like to give special thanks to our loyal customers and business associates who have made our achievements possible. SSF's product offerings are an extension of our product suppliers' dedication to providing the high-quality automotive spare parts our customers need. We are grateful for their trust and support and look forward to our continued partnerships.
