Initially a one-man operation run by Herman Smith, H&H Classic Parts opened its doors in September 1987 as a hobby that got way out of hand, according to Smith’s son Tray, who is now vice president of operations and sales. The company has since grown in size by 300%.
During H&H’s infancy, the elder Smith also owned an automotive service center. It housed H&H in a small room, but he sold the service center in 1993 so that he could concentrate on growing H&H. Soon after, the company added 7,200 sq. ft. and expanded again last year by 13,000 sq. ft.
