Highway Auto Parts in Roseville, MI to Host 2016 ARM Road Show

The 8th Annual ARM Road Show & Business Networking Conference will be hosted this year by Highway Auto Parts in Roseville, May 12-14, 2016. ¬†Highway Auto Parts was founded in 1957 by Jack Rukes behind a few houses on Groesbeck in Roseville. In 1962 the houses were torn down and the current building was put up for a sales lobby, offices, and warehouse. Jack Rukes quickly grew the business into one of the busiest salvage yards in the Detroit Metro area. During the 70s he paved the entire yard with cement and built a new 30,000 sq. foot warehouse with more office space. Business continued to thrive and in 1989 Don Sharon and Hank Cloutier purchased it from the Rukes family. They renamed it Don & Hank’s Highway Auto Parts and continued to run it until 2012 when they both were ready to retire. Ryan’s Auto Parts purchased it in 2012 and changed the name back to Highway Auto Parts. After purchasing it they quickly set about modernizing the facility. New racks, hoists, and equipment were brought in. A new drainage system with multiple catch basins and separators was installed around the property. The facade, lobby, and warehouse spaces of both buildings were updated, and a new covered truck well was installed.
