Our Story

Community Based Since 1963


William J Ham Jr opened the first store on Main Street in Barnesville in June of 1963 becoming the first NAPA Jobber in the Ham family. He was working in a Pembroke Chevrolet dealership when he decided he was ready to go into business on his own. ‘Pops’ always had a knack for automobiles, and he had a good friend and mentor who was a NAPA jobber, so it was only fitting. He moved to Barnesville to be closer to family, and so began the Ham family auto parts business.

Ham's NAPA Auto Parts - Meet Our Team - Ham Family


The Ham Family

The group of stores are now owned and operated by William J Ham III. William spent his childhood learning and working with his dad, refurbishing a string of cars and motorcycles. He studied at Georgia Tech and received his degree in Industrial Engineering. After a short stint working as a civilian engineer on Robins Air Force Base, he couldn’t stay away from the family business. He came to work for his dad full time in 1988 and took over operations of the group of stores after the elder William Ham retired in 2004. Shown here are Bill (Jr.) and wife Freida Ham, William (III), son Joel, and daughter Madison at the opening of the new location in Barnesville.
