Harry Bauer was born in 1904 and graduated from the Naval Academy in 1927. During his early career, he served at various shore stations, including the battleships Cuyama and Twiggs. In July 1941, he was commissioned as a Lieutenant Commander, and on 1 January 1942, he took command of the fast transport Gregory. He was a veteran of World War II, and received four battle stars for his actions during the Battle of Guadalcanal.
Harry and Kathy Bauer started FCP Euro in Groton, Connecticut, and it has since grown into one of the largest European car parts retailers in the world. The company offers over 150,000 Genuine and OEM parts for European cars and trucks. Their catalog includes parts for BMW, Audi, Mercedes, Porsche, Volvo, and more. They have a 100,000-square-foot distribution center in Milford, CT, and can ship to most of the Northeast in one business day.
After operating the small Groton store for almost two decades, FCP Euro turned its focus to customer service and avoided selling cheap parts, which promised low margins but disappointed customers. The company expanded to Old Saybrook, Connecticut, in 2008, and by 2014, its annual sales had grown to $8 million. The company’s parent company sold the company to the founders, and the company is still run by the Bauers.
The FCP Euro chain is the largest of its kind in the world. Founded by Harry and Kathy Bauer in Groton, CT, in 1986, the company has grown to $30 million in annual sales. Although the company is privately owned, it competes with larger brands thanks to its superior quality and comprehensive Lifetime Replacement Promise.
It was the Internet that paved the way for the company to expand and offer more than 350,000 parts. In addition, the company also offers do-it-yourself video instructions on how to properly maintain and repair your car. Its customers are do-it-yourself enthusiasts who have cars between four and 12 years old.
