About Us


Maritime Auto Parts is a full-service auto recycler and parts supplier of new and used automotive parts.

Our History


Ray Fillmore incorporated Maritime Auto Salvage Ltd. in Truro, NS. In 1932.

1942 - 46

WWII halted the production of vehicles.


the “Bi-Hi” (Bicentennial Highway) was routed right through Maritime Auto’s Lower Truro location, forcing a move to our current location, Glenholme, NS.


After about 40 years, and two generations, the Fillmore’s sold Maritime to Basil MacKay and Harry Marsh in 1974. MacKay and Marsh organized the vehicles into rows by make and model and eliminated the “junk yard” feel.


Lana & Ed MacDonald purchase Maritime Auto. They implemented a computerized inventory management system almost immediately.


Son of Lana and Ed, Andrew MacDonald purchased the business from his parents.

Present Day

Maritime Auto continues to grow and serve more customers throughout Atlantic Canada and beyond.
