Dom's Auto Parts
Opened in 1964
in Toronto

Serving the Automotive Industry for Over 50 Years

Dominic Vetere Senior and his son Mickey Vetere opened Dom’s Auto Parts in March 1964. Starting with only 6 employees in a small west end yard in Toronto on McCormack Street, Dom’s Auto Parts was rapidly growing and looking to expand.

In 1967, Dom’s Auto Parts purchased Motor
City Auto Parts 65 acres of property in Courtice
which is where we reside today. Sadly in 1975
Dominic Vetere Senior passed away, leaving
son Mickey and son in-law Gino to run the
family business. In 1976 the Toronto location
was closed.

Over the years, Mickey Vetere has been considered a pioneer and innovator in the recycling industry. With such passion, Mickey has helped establish I-CAR in Canada and was a founding board member and past president of the Canadian Auto Recyclers Association. Among many first, Mickey ran; Canada’s first recycler’s trade show at the Bristol Place Hotel in Toronto with Roger Dupuy, the Hot Line and the Roadrunner Transport System to name a few.

Mickey’s son Dominic Vetere Junior, began working at the Courtice facility in the mid 80’s and has since taken partnership with his father. As past president of the Ontario Automotive Recyclers Association, Dominic remains actively involved in the automotive industry and is committed to helping the advancement of the industry he loves so much.

On March 11, 2003 Dom’s Auto Parts experienced a devastating fire, which destroyed the main office and garages. Two years later, through hard work, dedicated employees and industry wide support, our new state of the art facility was opened.

With over 30 employees, Dom’s Auto Parts continues to be a leader in the auto recycling industry in Canada.
