About SMP

SMP Lobby

Established in 1919 and traded on the NYSE, Standard Motor Products, Inc., (SMP) is a leading independent manufacturer, distributor, and marketer of replacement parts for motor vehicles in the automotive aftermarket industry, with a complementary focus on heavy duty, industrial equipment and original equipment markets.

SMP is a billion dollar plus enterprise that has neither forgotten its roots nor lost the feel of a family run company. With 4 CEO’s over 100+ years, all of whom are descendants of Founder, Elias Fife, continuity of leadership has allowed Standard to survive upheavals from the Great Depression through the Great Recession and come out of those crises stronger than before. Success throughout the Covid-19 pandemic is further proof of this assertion.

We are organized into two operating segments: Engine Management and Temperature Control. We sell our products primarily to automotive aftermarket retailers, program distribution groups, warehouse distributors, original equipment manufacturers and original equipment service part operations in the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia, Mexico and other Latin American countries. We employ approximately 4,300 people in North America, Europe and Asia.
