JEGS IS BORN

www.jegs50years.com

 

IN 1960, IN HIS SMALL, UNPRETENTIOUS SPEED SHOP ON 11TH AVENUE IN DOWNTOWN COLUMBUS, OHIO, JEG COUGHLIN SR. BEGAN THE HIGH PERFORMANCE PARTS BUSINESS WHICH WOULD SOMEDAY EVOLVE INTO A MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR HIGH PERFORMANCE MAIL ORDER OPERATION WHICH HAS BECOME THE BENCHMARK IN THE AUTOMOTIVE RETAIL INDUSTRY.

 

COUGHLIN WAS A DRAG RACER HIMSELF AND KNEW THAT FINDING THE RIGHT PARTS FOR HIS WON RACING MACHINES COULD SOMETIMES BE A HASSLE. BUT THROUGH HIS OWN EXPERIENCES IN LOCATING THE BEST PARTS AND SPEED EQUIPMENT FOR HIS OWN RACING EFFORTS, JEG PIECED TOGETHER THE HUMBLE BEGINNINGS OF WHAT IS NOW ONE OF THE WORLD’S LARGEST SUPPLIERS OF EVERYTHING RACERS AND HOT RODDERS NEED FOR THEIR HOT RODS, RACE CARS, STREET MACHINES, AND MUSCLE CARS. HIS 4000 SQ. FOOT SPEED SHOP OF 50 YEARS AGO HAS EXPANDED INTO A STATE-OF-THE-ART, SEVERAL HUNDRED-THOUSAND SQ. FOOT HEADQUARTERS IN COLUMBUS, BUT REMAINING A FAMILY-OWNED BUSINESS DEDICATED TO ONE-ON-ONE SERVICE TO THE CUSTOMER.
