Founded as Tidewater Battery – a single location focused on a single product line1953
Our customers have always come first
In 1953, Tidewater Fleet Supply was founded as a distributor of batteries. 68 years, 2,500+ customers, and 65 delivery vehicles later, we’ve grown beyond our hometown of Norfolk, Virginia to become one of the largest independent parts distributors in all of North America. We provide a vast catalog of parts—from hundreds of product lines—to thousands of customers across the Southeast. And we continually outpace the competition by providing distribution efficiencies and advantages, which we achieve by having our stores and distribution centers strategically located.
