RANDYS Worldwide Automotive
History & Timeline

RANDYS Worldwide Automotive first opened its doors in June of 1982 as a small service shop in Randy Lyman’s garage. In 1984, he moved his garage business into a commercial building and in 1986 he began parts distribution.

In 1989, Randy returned to his home state of Washington and opened a small service shop in Redmond, WA. Five years later, he relocated the shop north to Everett, WA and in 1996, with a growing customer base and the vision of becoming the number one source for the nation's differential needs, Randy changed the company name to Randy's Ring & Pinion.

With typical forward-thinking vision, Randy recognized this area as a future hotbed industrial district, with expansion opportunities focusing on parts manufacturing and distribution. By 2001, sales boomed such that a new location across the continent was needed, and this vision became a reality with the opening of the Tennessee warehouse. Our bi-coastal locations enable us to ship our products quickly to customers around the nation. In 2002, Randy's expanded into a new 58,000 square foot office and warehouse space in Everett, WA. In 2005, we opened a third warehouse in Fresno, CA.

By 2014 the company had grown beyond Randy's original vision and included two manufacturing lines. To better represent the new face of the company the name was once again changed, this time to RANDYS Worldwide Automotive.

Since opening in 1989, our Washington Service Center has serviced tens of thousands of customers. Our staff is trained using Randy Lyman’s own tested methods. In addition to repair work, the shop is also used for testing new products, training sales reps, and researching the latest vehicle applications.
