Peter Parts Electronics – Business of the Year 2015

Peter Parts Electronics, 6285 Dean Parkway, Ontario, was recognized as the Business of the Year for 2015 at the annual changeover dinner of the Ontario-Walworth Rotary Club. The award is co-sponsored with Ontario Chamber of Commerce and Ontario-Walworth Rotary.

The company is owned by Peter Parts and Steve Crane and began in Webster and moved to Ontario in 1997. Peter Parts Electronics has supported the local Ontario community through the Pines of Peace, Ontario Food Pantry, Rotary Camp ONSEYAWA, Camp Good Days, providing an intern opportunity for a Wayne Central student, a mentoring program for the Webster Robotics Team and consulting for Rochester Institute of Technology.

“In 1986 Peter started Peter Parts Electronics. Many of Peter’s early customers were looking for reliable manufacturers in the Far East, but didn’t know where to look. And many Far Eastern manufacturers wanted to sell parts with their own brand on them. Peter thought it was a great idea — imagine, starting a business that not only found the best manufacturers, but was forthcoming with his customers with names, data, samples, and JIT delivery of these great companies around the world.

Peter’s hundreds of customers in the U.S. and his hundreds of contacts in the Far East were all looking for a way to talk to each other, but didn’t know how. Working initially from a tiny office in Webster, NY, a Rochester suburb, Peter supplied those contacts, along with the credibility and trustworthiness that he and his company are now legendary for. Now they are working with 100’s of customers, and eighty manufacturers.”

Sparky’s Cans and Bottles, located at 6341 Ontario Center Road opened 5 years ago, June 1, 2009 to process can and bottle returns for the New York State 5 cent deposits. Owner Jo Donnelly used her nickname “Sparky” as the company name.

She employs local teens to help sort the various cans and bottles by distributer, size and type. Distributers then pick up the sorted items weekly. Jo will go anywhere within a 20 minute drive to deliver collection barrels and bags for an event and then pick up the returns to process for a chosen charitable group. They help with fundraising for our local school groups and churches, Pines of Peace Comfort Home, Boys Scouts and Cub Scouts, the Humane Society and Ontario Food Pantry.
