Located at 10/14 Winnellie Road, Winnellie, the location is an extension and rebrand of the popular Ashdown-Ingram site, which local auto electricians have been seeking both specialist advice and quality parts for years.

The local team of automotive parts specialists can now support local mechanical, electrical and air con workshops with an extended product range from market leading brands and everyday great value through service and knowledge.

This knowledge is referred to as NAPA Know How and allows NAPA Auto Parts to leverage a vast knowledge bank from product teams, local and international brands and state-based specialists who live and breathe aftermarket parts. When combined with the skills and knowledge of local parts specialists, we can ensure you get the right part for your vehicle every time.

With over 90 years’ experience in the Australian automotive aftermarket space, NAPA Know How is the foundation of extensive product knowledge across braking, electrical, air conditioning, servicing, engine cooling, driveline, tools and equipment.

From the Winnellie based branch, the team can reach customers in Darwin, Winnellie, Berrimah, Palmerston City and Casuarina, extending all the way out to Timber Creek, Pine Creek, Katherine, Jabiru, Kununurra (WA), Tennant Creek and surrounding areas.

NQ/NT Regional Manager, Mark Crimston, is excited to finally launch the brand in Darwin and expand the business potential from the Darwin team.

“Shayne and the team have the know how and capability to support local automotive repairers with the right tools, equipment, parts and advice to build trust and help local workshops to be more efficient.
