Our History

Hi-Line was founded in 1959 by J.P. Sheaffer when he recognized a genuine need in the market place—businesses were hurting for inventory management and timely, direct delivery of quality electrical and mechanical maintenance products. His solution? Take the store and the service to the customer.

J.P.’s dream took shape as he started operations out of his Dallas home.  In the beginning, J.P. enlisted the help of his sons each night as they stocked and loaded his old Pontiac station wagon with product. The following morning, he would personally service his customers in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area,  managing their inventories of aftermarket products.


“We learned early that it was our knowledge and expertise that customers valued most and which set us apart. Not only did we find the right part for the job, we managed their inventory for them, keeping it organized and stocked so they could focus on production.”

—J.P. Sheaffer, Founder and Chairman

Hi-Line Today

Hi-Line has grown from those humble beginnings into a nationwide distributor of industrial MRO supplies. Today, Hi-Line’s Territory Managers drive fully stocked mobile stores with direct access to over 30,000 parts. Our Territory Managers are highly trained and equipped to serve the needs of  the transportation, aviation, facilities maintenance,  aerospace, medical, military, marine, power generation, manufacturing and heavy equipment industries.

Hi-Line’s growth and service reputation are founded on three core values:
