Our history

About Us - Peterborough Automotive founder Rod Anderson

Peterborough Automotive & Machine Ltd. was founded in 1986 by partners Rod Anderson and Doug Barraball.

Under their guidance Peterborough Automotive & Machine Ltd. expanded to include two other branches, Walkwood Supply in 2000 and Lakefield Auto Parts in 2003.

Rod also served in many capacities with our buying group Bestbuy Auto Parts, including terms as Vice President and President while at the helm of Peterborough Automotive & Machine Ltd. When his partner Doug decided to retire, Rod bought out Doug’s interest and pushed the company forward with his son, Scott Anderson.

Today, Scott Anderson is President and the company is referred to as Peterborough Automotive.
