Driven by necessity and the lengthy delay he was experiencing whenever he ordered high performance parts from either coast, Jeg Coughlin Sr. started JEGS in 1960 as a little speed shop on 11th avenue in downtown Columbus. As word of his mechanical genius spread and his client list grew, JEGS Mail Order began expanding with Coughlin purchasing adjacent buildings and properties.


“Eventually, we just ran out of room,” he said. “There was simply nowhere left to go.”


A search was on and together with his four sons, the Coughlin clan found the perfect spot on a sprawling plot of land in the north Columbus suburb of Delaware, Ohio.


Built to purpose in 1999 the new JEGS facility is the model of mail order efficiency, from the huge parts warehouse, to the call center, corporate offices, and with a R&D facility on the grounds, no detail was overlooked. It’s the reason why JEGS Mail Order is poised to continue its first successful 50 years of business with 50 more, and beyond.
