ALLDATA LLC is the largest single source of OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) information available. ALLDATA provides vehicle manufacturers' diagnostic and repair information to more than 70,000 professional auto repair shops and consumers.
The company was founded in 1986 in Elk Grove, California by entrepreneur Rod Georgiu and a team of computer and automotive professionals who foresaw how automotive technology would soon transform the vehicle repair industry. They knew that shops would need fast access to reliable information for the coming explosion of makes and models.
In 1996, ALLDATA was purchased by AutoZone® to provide service & repair information in addition to the automotive parts and accessories sold at AutoZone’ retail stores. AutoZone is the leading retailer and a leading distributor of automotive replacement parts and accessories with more than 4,100 stores in the United States and Mexico.
