A Little History
In July 1979, McDonald started his business called Master Paint Supply on Clyde Avenue . It served many Ottawa area body shops and car dealers with the finest automotive refinishing products, equipment and superior knowledge for the changing industry. The business of course had its ups and downs, but in 1985, the 2000 square foot building was not suitable for the growing business, so they moved to their new location at 1580 Laperriere Ave. where they would have over 10,000 square feet.
The same year, McDonald started another business called The Fender Factory. He saw the need for a wholesale/retail sheet metal business in the Ottawa Valley , since MPS was selling automotive paints and other auto body supplies, it was only natural that replacement parts become the next step. Today The Fender Factory and MPS together, both operate from the Laperriere Avenue location. In 1990, Metropolitan Automotive (a competitor selling DuPont Paints) was purchased, and that's where the name MPS Metro comes from.
Serving Ottawa-Hull and surrounding areas, MPS and its employees are a tight knit group. "We're family-operated and we take pride in what we do," Lisa says. That pride translates into community event involvement like, Cruise Night (Hazeldean Mall), Way Promotion Events (Mr. Larry Way), Motor Sport Club, Cheo, MADD, Ottawa Food Bank and Snowsuit Fund.
