About Us in Columbus, OH

WASCO—Spreading Savings and Standards Since 1962

How It Began

Since 1962, Wholesale Automotive Supplier of Columbus (WASCO) has kept the same high standards and low prices, passing them to our customers through the years using our buying power. We started as a buying co-op for new car dealerships in Franklin County that were tired of paying drastic prices from vendor to vendor. The dealers realized that combining their buying power could get better prices, and that tradition has held through the years. The only difference is that today, we not only service dealers but are also open to the public and serve independent shop owners alike. We offer paint and body shop supplies, including paint, parts, tools, cleaning supplies, and detailing supplies. We not only value our selection of goods, but we value our customers who trust us with their automotive needs. We strive to support shops of all sizes, with large and small budgets, and the highest quality of resources available from top brands in the market.

Fair Prices, Fair Trade

WASCO has always aimed to keep prices equitable and to trade with other businesses honorably. We also offer the best services and products you can find on the market. Our staff truly cares about servicing our customers. Whether helping to find a particular item, educating them on the newest thing, or teaching and training them on a new product or tool, our friendly and knowledgeable staff is always ready to help. We consider ourselves experts in the auto body and paint supply industry, and we hope to share that expertise with everyone who walks through our doors.

We are proud of the vendors our business represents and our steadfast desire to share our success. Since 2001, we have been a BASF ColorSource™ Distributor. In 2015, we received the great honor of being the 2015 Colorsource™Distributor of the Year. Our warehouse is conveniently on the east side of town at 2876 Banwick Rd Columbus, OH 43232.
