About Us

Who We Are

Sharp Auto Parts is a family run business with deep roots in the automotive industry, spanning over 40 years. From our small beginnings retailing service parts, in the coal mining town of Dundee, KZN, we have grown to a company with 3 branches across South Africa, importing engine components directly from manufacturers and distributing across nationally. With our links to other component importers locally and abroad, in the UK and USA, our network is able to deliver engine parts globally, anywhere from London to the islands of French Polynesia in the South Pacific.


Cylinder heads make up our core product line, we stock the largest range, in South Africa, and possibly the world, with over 300, and counting, different types of cylinder heads, which cover a diverse spectrum of light, medium & heavy duty vehicles, machinery and implements, from the most popular American, European and Asian brands. From that core we have diversified to crankshafts, connecting rods, blocks, sub-assemblies, engines and other components for the most popular vehicles in our respective markets.


Our mission is to deliver to our customers the correct, precision quality auto part, at a fair price, at the right time, to achieve our purpose, to make the purchase & delivery of parts simple and efficient. To attain this, we focus on our values of teamwork, integrity, commitment to excellent customer service, and proficiency in auto knowledge, which will lead us to realise our vision, to be the premier destination for auto parts and auto information, which is our part in moving Africa towards prosperity.
