Our Story


In 1966 Custom Engine and Parts opened its doors to Southern Alberta in a relatively small 2500 sq. ft location on 3rd Ave.S. providing top notch automotive machining and automotive parts expertise to the area.


Custom Engine soon established themselves as "The automotive machine shop/parts supplier"in the Lethbridge area.With word spreading about the quality and service that Custom Engine offered the old location was soon out grown and in the late 70's a new machine shop and parts department were born at the present location of 316-34 St.S. Lethbridge.


The new machine shop boasted specialty machinery and separate departments specializing in each phase of engine rebuilding.


Times changed and so did business. Along with the specialization came a bit of diversity and in 1994 the name was changed to CEP Automotive to reflect the broader range of products and services.


In 1995 CEP joined the nationwide Bumper To Bumper network of automotive parts suppliers and prides themselves in top notch, knowledgeable, friendly service.


A High Performance Division was added to compliment the expertise both in the shop and on the counter of our knowledgeable, experienced staff.


An Irrigation Pump Division has been added and CEP takes pride in offering inhouse rebuilt irrigation pumps from the ground up all field ready!


CEP now boasts a 35,000 sq. ft. warehouse that has three main divisions; automotive parts, performance parts, and irrigation all manned by top notch professionals.


Our Staff is the backbone of our success as a business with their knowledge, enthusiasm and courtesy they'll definitely be capable of handling all your needs.
