About Us

Orleans Auto Supply was founded by Dick, Sr. and Irma Fairbanks in 1973, and we still occupy our original, but greatly expanded, location on Rte 6A in the center of Orleans

Our Hyannis location was opened in 1978 and has also been expanded as our business has grown. Hyannis is currently the site of our administrative offices and our central purchasing activity as well as a visible store presence in the Cape’s largest commercial center. Our West Harwich and Falmouth locations were acquired in 1984.  

Dick Fairbanks, Jr. purchased the company in 1985 and has worked with his team to create our region’s only completely independent, full line, supplier of automotive repair parts and supplies.

Our stability, local control and consistent growth have allowed us to attract and retain our industry’s best people. Our customers often speak with service people that have 10, 15 even 20 plus years of experience with us. More importantly, we speak daily with second and third generation customers whose businesses we have served for more than 30 years.   

All decisions, from daily operational questions, to strategic improvements are made here, made efficiently and tailored to our customers on Cape Cod and the Islands.

Our choice of charitable giving is locally focused as well. We are committed supporters of local human service efforts through the Cape and Islands United Way, where 99% of every donation stays here, to help families here. To donate or learn more, visit http://uwcapecod.org
