In 1963, the first Traction store opened its doors in Montreal. Fifty years later, Traction has become the Canadian leader in the heavy vehicle replacement parts market. With over 100 stores, Traction offers a complete range of truck and trailer parts to a diverse clientele throughout the country.
Traction stores are a one-stop shop where customers can find over 300,000 truck and trailer products from more than 1,000 suppliers. We carry all the industry’s most recognized brands in addition to our private label brand, HD Plus. Our employees are heavy vehicle specialists with a focus on customer service. At Traction, our expertise means we are much more than a network of parts stores–we are business partners for our customers.
We serve the end-users of our parts, from owner-operators with a single truck to national fleets with several thousand trucks and trailers.
Traction has service contracts with 50 of the country’s largest fleets.
Our customers work in a diverse variety of industries, including transportation of goods, public services, construction, mining, forestry, and passenger transportation.
