About Us - The History of Fyfes

Celebrating over 100 years of trading and continuous business development, it is hardly surprising that Fyfes are currently Northern Ireland’s largest motor factor. Now under the control of the 3rd generation of the Fyfe family, we have plenty to offer; but where did it all begin?

Fyfes was founded in 1915 when brothers John and Michael opened a shoe shop in Broughshane Street, Ballymena. Among some of the original products stocked were Dunlop Wellington Boots – a far cry from today’s extensive stock holding. Fyfes have always taken a progressive attitude to business development, constantly updating and enhancing their range of products. This is evident from these early days, when a range of bicycle tyres was introduced to generate added business. Thanks to this forward thinking, the business grew and the company’s activities developed further by stocking bicycle and motor parts and accessories.

In 1946 business had increased to such a level that a second premises was opened in Ballymoney Street, Ballymena to concentrate specifically on motor parts – an indication that growth and success has been enjoyed from the beginning. By this time Kevin Fyfe, John’s son, had taken on the business. Under his guidance and entrepreneurial approach, Fyfes continued to expand adding tools, welding and paint products to the stock profile.

Then in 1974, a 20,000 sq ft purpose built unit was opened at Pennybridge Industrial Estate on the outskirts of Ballymena, affording easy access to all areas of Northern Ireland. By the 1990s the present Managing Director, Tony Fyfe, had taken control of the company and in order to further develop the business and enhance customer service levels, a branch network was created throughout the province.
