STAUNTON, Va. — Federated member Vaca Valley Auto Parts of Fairfield, Calif. is celebrating its 40th Anniversary. Vaca Valley is a family business, owned and operated by Jack Martin, his wife Evelyn and their son Trevor.
 
“We want to congratulate Jack, Evelyn, Trevor and the entire Vaca Valley staff on their 40th anniversary,” said Rusty Bishop, CEO of Federated Auto Parts. “Since joining the Federated family, the Martins have always been willing to share their knowledge and expertise with the entire Federated membership and they have been instrumental in the continued growth and success of Federated.”
 
In celebration of its 40th anniversary, Vaca Valley will be conducting several promotions for its customers. June is NASCAR month as several loyal customers will be the guests of Vaca Valley at the Sonoma Raceway for the NASCAR Sprint Cup race. In July, Vaca Valley will give its customers a one dollar scratcher lottery ticket for every $100 spent per invoice. In August, Vaca Valley will host a 40th anniversary barbeque for customers and vendors at its flagship store.
 
Formed in 1974, Vaca Valley was originally owned by Jack Martin, Richard Black and Will Suter. Jack and Evelyn Martin purchased the remaining shares in 1975 and in 2002, Vaca Valley aligned with Federated. The Martin’s son Trevor currently serves as the company’s vice president and general manager. Vaca Valley Auto Parts began with five employees working out of a 4,800 square foot building with one delivery vehicle. Today, headquartered in a 14,000-square-foot building, 28 employees and 14 delivery vehicles continue to serve Solano County.
 
"With great family leaders, an in-house automotive machine shop, knowledgeable employees and a fleet of delivery vehicles, Vaca Valley is poised and ready for another 40 years of continued business success,” continued Bishop. “While the world has seen many changes over the past four decades, the Martin family has remained committed to their one goal, to be the best.”
