Oscaro is the European leader of e-commerce for OE quality automotive parts
Our story starts in 2000, when Pierre-Noël Luiggi, struggled to find a quality part to replace the broken mirror on his car. Applying his passion for computers and car repair to the service of the DIYer, he decides to team up with a fellow MBA, Véronique Campbell, to launch Oscaro.com. Their mission was to make information and products available to anyone wanting to repair and maintain their cars.
Following 3 years of negotiations with suppliers, and the development of a truly innovative user-experience, Oscaro’s first international e-commerce platform starts operations in 2003. Now car owners can buy OE and OE quality parts online, from the best manufacturers in the world, at a fraction of the price offered by automotive dealers.
A mastered growth
10 years later, Oscaro is in the middle of significant growth. From a successful local start-up, Oscaro is now a multinational group with operations in France, Spain, United States, Belgium and Portugal.
More than 16 million vehicles have been maintained or repaired with the help of Oscaro, and its team of 800 car enthusiasts.
