Newark Auto Products was established in 1907, as a trim shop, refurbishing upholstery in horse-drawn carriages. As the popularity of the automobile grew, so did Newark Auto and the products they offered for automobiles. At the close of World War II, the company swung into high gear producing everything for the interiors of cars from Replacement Carpets and Seat Covers to Headliners and Convertible Tops.
In the 1950's, the company went national when they became the first supplier of Replacement Carpets, Seat Covers, and Convertible Tops for automobiles in the J.C. Whitney catalog. From that time, they have grown to be the largest supplier of Automotive Replacement Carpets and Replacement Rubber Mats for Trucks and Vans to the Do-it-Yourself market.
In 2008, the company moved to its current national headquarters in East Orange, New Jersey.
We continue to supply J.C. Whitney & Co., Victoria British, LMC Trucks, and have been the supplier to Sears and J. C. Penney Catalog departments, and their products are currently available at many websites, including Stock Interiors and Ebay.
In addition to the Sewn-To-Contour Carpets and Rubber Mats, we manufacture under contract custom protector mats for Mitsubishi/FUSO trucks, a variety of genuine leather and vinyl shift/brake boots for specific cars and trucks and other custom products for niche markets.
We offer a special-order program that requires no initial investment: sell the carpet, order it from us, and we Drop-ship to your customer. NO INVENTORY, NO INVESTMENT.
Drop shipments are sent with a prepaid UPS ground shipping label that includes your name and address. This fee is added to your invoice.
