When Juan Mascaró Solé and his partners founded Mascaró-Porter & Co., Inc. on Feb. 9, 1949, fewer than 25,000 cars and trucks traveled along Puerto Rico's roads. Juan Mascaró, a former Packard dealer, along with his son Joaquín Mascaró Alier and family members Gerald Porter and Larry Street, recognized a need and an opportunity. Those vehicles would need high quality tires and other replacement parts, and Mascaró-Porter would provide them.
The partners and their 10 employees quickly gained a reputation for service and integrity, a reputation that remains the company's most important asset. Today, more than 60 years later, more than 2.4 million vehicles buzz along Puerto Rico's highways, and Mascaró-Porter & Co., Inc. is still keeping them on the go. As Puerto Rico's leading parts distributor, the company's loyal employees know their clients and their products inside and out. More than half of the employees have been with the company for at least 15 years, ensuring lasting continuity while orientating a motivated new generation with fresh ideas and energy.
