Our Story

Roadrunner Parts is an Australian family owned business that has been operating since 1998. In 1999 the business was moved into our first warehouse with 2 staff. We quickly grew into larger premises with 4 staff and in 2004 acquired Australian Arrow Boards. In 2006 we moved to Chipping Norton, before settling in our current location in Prestons in 2012. The business continues to grow each year.

Roadrunner Parts is a team environment where we share a strong sense of fun. Members are encouraged to grow within themselves and the business. This results in a bank of dedicated people building a wealth of product knowledge, our sales people are generally experienced trades people with intimate knowledge of the products we recommend.

A commitment to quality needs to be backed by more than just words. We ensure that we only stock products that we have tested and believe to be of the highest quality. Our intention is to allow you, our customer, to purchase with confidence.

We are more than just a supplier, we are able to discuss with you the many different options of product available to suit specialist projects you are involved in and provide you with the optimum solution. We strongly believe that developing trusted long term relationships is the keystone to business growth.

These principles have enabled Roadrunner Parts to consistently build the business by customer referrals. We have a strong reputation as a company that will chase and supply the difficult, an attitude to not say no.
