Neapco Celebrates 100 Year Anniversary

The company marks the milestone with several significant product and service expansions.

Neapco – a leading U.S.-based supplier of drivelines and driveline components to original equipment manufacturers and the related aftermarkets around the globe – is celebrating its centennial anniversary this year. Neapco has been manufacturing driveline solutions in the U.S. since 1921.

Originally known as New England Auto Products Corporation (N.E.A.P.Co), the company has ties stretching back to the democratization of the automobile in the United States. Since then, the company has grown to more than 3,200 team members at 11 locations around the world, marking its position of leadership in the global automotive supply industry.

Continuing with a commitment to ongoing innovation to provide world-class products and services, this year, Neapco launched under the Neapco Performance Series brand, the next generation of universal joints. The company also expanded product coverage for Jeep applications including JL and JT models; unveiled new Neapco Performance Series carbon fiber driveshafts and components that are available with proprietary TrakHook technology; debuted a one-of-a-kind Mobile Driveshaft Shop where Neapco experts train customers how to build Neapco carbon fiber driveshafts using an all new patent-pending bonding process; and, strategically extended the company’s distribution footprint, adding a new distribution center location in Greer, South Carolina, to provide increased local distribution which supplies customers with improved inventory turns, lower shipping costs, shorter ship times, and more.

“As the Neapco team reflects on 100 years of innovation, we celebrate our team members, past and current, that have helped blaze the trails to success. Our team members share our values of Partnership, Passion, Agility, Teamwork, Integrity, and Diversity. It is equally fitting to roll out and celebrate multiple, significant product and service innovations,” said Ken Hopkins, president and CEO of Neapco. “We are very proud of our heritage. Neapco has been a driving force of innovation throughout the driveline industry, enhancing design and production capabilities, adding new product lines, and expanding into new markets for 10 decades and we are laser-focused on continued growth in the months and years ahead. Our motto: One Team. One Mission. Since 1921, will continue to guide us into the next 100 years.”

Today, Neapco designs, manufactures and distributes high-quality, cost-effective OEM and aftermarket driveline products for the automotive, light truck, heavy truck, off-road, enthusiast, off-highway, agriculture, performance and industrial markets.

Neapco has earned industry accolades for a culture of innovation, advanced process and production technologies and a commitment to maintaining the highest standards for quality and consistency. All Neapco products are precision-engineered and manufactured to exacting tolerances in state-of-the-art facilities around the globe to deliver optimal performance that meets the application-specific demands of each vehicle.

“Neapco’s rich history of excellence, diverse product lines, engineering expertise, and integrated manufacturing capabilities define the company’s competitive advantage,” explained Tim Goode, vice president, sales and marketing. “While we celebrate our century-long automotive legacy this year, it’s a wonderful time to honor our past successes, celebrate our rapid growth, and highlight what’s new, while continuing our focus on future opportunities.”
