About Us

Welcome to the illustrious journey of Pitstop, a legacy born from the acquisition of Parkers Pitstop by the visionary Waleed Baker in 1991. Drawing inspiration from his tenure with the Parkers Pitstop team, Baker’s entrepreneurial spirit and fervent passion for establishing the epitome of an all-encompassing Auto Fitment Centre led to the founding of the Pitstop we all know and trust today.

Embark on the remarkable journey of Pitstop, a legacy traced back to the inception of Parkers Auto Centre. In 1991, entrepreneur Waleed Baker acquired the Parkers Auto Centre store in Athlone, Balgravia Rd – Klipfontein, laying the foundation for a visionary enterprise. Fuelled by his experience with the Parkers Pitstop team, Baker’s entrepreneurial spirit inspired the establishment of Pitstop Auto Centre in 1992, shaping the brand’s commitment to becoming the ultimate Auto Fitment Centre.

The evolution of Pitstop unfolded through pivotal moments in its history. In 1993, Baker expanded his reach by acquiring the second store located in Woodstock, Albert Road, originally operating as Parkers Auto Centre. The transformative chapter continued in 1996 when Baker acquired Pitstop Auto Centre from Muhammed Parker, subsequently rebranding it as Parkers Pitstop. In 1999, Baker orchestrated a significant merger with Tyre Mart, a strategic move towards providing a comprehensive and cost-effective “One-Stop” service. As the brand thrived under Baker’s leadership, Pitstop expanded to encompass 16 branches, solidifying its prominent presence throughout the Western Cape.

Pitstop’s journey is a testament to its roots, showcasing the amalgamation of Parkers Auto Centre, Pitstop Auto Centre, and Tyre Mart into a unified and thriving entity.
