APD Power Center History, Tempe, Arizona, 1966
APD Power Center started as an automotive speed shop in a tiny 2,000 square
foot building behind an auto parts store located on West Broadway Road in
Tempe, Arizona. The speed shop was named Pitkin's Engine Machine and
focused on performance and race engines. As time passed, Pitkin's began to sell
small industrial diesel and gasoline engines and changed the machine shop focus
from primarily a speed shop to include both performance and industrial engine
The store became one of the largest small engine dealers in the state of Arizona.
The original owners of Pitkin's decided to sell their business to three key
employees that had managed and operated the store for them for many years.
Those three employees went to relatives and borrowed cash and cleaned out
savings accounts. The operating cash for the first day of business was a meager
80 dollars pitched in from the three owner's pockets. The new venture was called
Arizona Automotive Machine (Arizona Automotive & Engine Repair, Inc.)
Engine machine work continued to be a main focus. By 1994 power equipment
and small engines sales had increased 1,000 percent. We thought the name APD
Power Center would better reflect the direction the business had grown. FYI, APD
is short for All Products Distributing. i.e. the full name of the company is All
Products Distributing Power Center.
