The beginning of Remy International makes up a special part of Indianapolis history, and actually started in the nearby town of Anderson, Indiana. Brothers Frank and Perry Remy started a home wiring business in 1896. They were on their quest for a Midwestern community where all their necessary resources were available. Anderson proved to be a good stop because of its proximity to downtown Indianapolis, which at the time had been experiencing a gas boom. The motion of Remy International propelled forward rapidly when the auto industry got a hold of it. Automakers contributed a great deal to the company, which was bought out and traded a few times along the way.
The company has been awarded many outstanding achievements outside of its grand size and financial success. Remy International has been voted supplier of the year by General Motors, and twice by Advanced Auto Parts.
In 2008, Remy International recorded more than $1 billion in sales. This Indianapolis business is in the top 10 on the list of the largest private Indianapolis companies. For more than 100 years, Remy International has provided thousands of Indianapolis jobs and employment opportunities worldwide.

Their large scale manufacturing business puts food on the table for many Hoosier families and Indianapolis children.
