BBB was founded in 1987 by brothers Jeffrey and Bruce Bigler. They initially operated the company as a regional remanufacturer of rotating electrical parts, focusing primarily on the niche import market. BBB established a reputation with its Southeast area customers as a reliable supplier of high quality, hard-to-find, remanufactured starters and alternators.
The company operated in Mobile, Alabama until 1998 when all manufacturing operations were moved to Reynosa, Mexico to enable the strategic changes in the operating philosophy of the company. The company's long term strategy is to capitalize on the labor cost savings in a low-cost country, to make significant quality improvements to the products and to provide market leading customer service and support.
