"We first started doing business with First Gear back in 1999 as we were gearing up to promote NAPA's 75th Anniversary in 2000. First Gear presented many concepts of which we landed on a series of unique diecasts to support different periods in NAPA's history. We have continued that relationship now for 17 years as we have found their services and products to be leaders in the industry."

Will Flower

Vice President - Communications

"First Gear is a great vendor to work with. We began working with the company in commemoration of our 50th anniversary. To celebrate the event, First Gear created a model of the 1956 Ford Truck that launched Werner Enterprises into the transportation industry. Their detailed work and responsiveness to our needs led us to commission two additional models. As a customer, it was rewarding to work with a company that is dedicated to providing the best service and products available.
Thank you First Gear."
