Dennis (Jake) McGrath and Thomas Carella founded Furrin Auto in December of 1971 and opened their first shop in February of 1972 on South Monroe Street. Working only on Volkswagens they moved in 1974 to Tennessee Street.
In 1975 Tom bought out Dennis and through dedication and planning the company has grown into one of the leading auto repair and service centers in North Florida.
In 1979 Professional Automotive was acquired to expand into servicing the Japanese import.
It was 1993 when Furrin Auto Parts Warehouse (FAPW) was formed as a separate group and moved to 730 West Gaines Street in order to better serve the wholesale parts trade.
