With a legacy of innovation that can be traced to the earliest days of the automobile, Wells Vehicle Electronics has earned the trust of the world’s premier vehicle manufacturers, component OEMs and repair professionals.

We Were Here First

To meet the needs of the rapidly growing automobile industry, Robert Wells established Wells Manufacturing in 1903, to build ignition coils and other components for Henry Ford in the mass production of the Model T.  Ford trusted Wells because of our mutual commitment to deliver high quality, reliable products and because we put our customers first.

As a founding member of the Automotive Warehouse Distributors Association (AWDA), Wells played an instrumental role in creating a network dedicated to serving the needs of the motor vehicle aftermarket. Wells continues to support a variety of organizations – AAPEX (etc.) that fosters the growth and influence of automotive parts suppliers throughout the industry at-large.  

While a lot has changed since opening the doors to Wells Vehicle Electronics, one thing remains the same – our steadfast commitment to making the most accurate and reliable vehicle components and meeting the needs of our customers throughout the aftermarket. 

No Signs of Slowing Down

We understand that customers are looking for innovative, high-quality components that meet the strict requirements of not only today’s vehicles, but tomorrow’s as well. That’s why we deliver trusted solutions that improve on conventional designs to help speed the repair process and ensure significantly better, longer-lasting service. It’s a commitment we deliver along with every product and package that bears our name.

Our unmatched engineering resources and leading-edge manufacturing and distribution capabilities have made Wells the preferred choice of an ever-growing number of replacement parts distributors, technicians and do-it-yourselfers within the automotive market. This commitment led to the creation of Wells Engineered Products (link to, a division that proudly designs, engineers and manufacturers a complete line of vehicle and engine management electronics for manufacturers of premium off-road, marine, agricultural, motorcycle, power generation and industrial equipment.
