The business commenced in 1967 by Wayne R. Butler, the Company Managing Director and Principal Shareholder in a small workshop in Crowhurst Street, Newmarket, Auckland. Initial operations involved the service and repair of vehicle fuel systems, carburettors and other related products.

In the mid 1980’s the emphasis of the business changed to the importation of automotive components and reselling to vehicle organizations throughout New Zealand. With the arrival of electronic fuel injection, the company moved premises to Manukau, Auckland to allow for future growth.

CDL Autoparts became the first aftermarket EFI component distributor in the country. We are now considered NZ’s foremost supplier of EFI and carburettor components, and our inventory includes parts for past and present vehicles.

During 2000, to provide further growth in the company we began importing LED truck lighting from Peterson Manufacturing Co., USA for the heavy transport industry. This has now become our fastest moving product line and has increased to the point that it is now the core of our day to day business.

Our product is represented extensively throughout NZ with an excellent reputation in the automotive industry and the heavy transport industry. We have experienced sales personnel in both the North and South Islands and pride ourselves on our expert technical knowledge.

Examples of these product lines are…

  • Peterson Heavy Duty LED Truck Lighting
  • Walker Oxygen and Air Fuel Ratio Sensors
