Our History

First International Trade


Jan imports a spare hood, door and bumper from Canada to the Czech Republic to fix a damaged vehicle for a client. The beginning of a trading empire has started!

A Family Venture


With his father and brothers, Jan opens a vehicle dealership in the Czech Republic specializing in the distribution of parts for American vehicles.

First International Vehicle


The dealership expands its expertise by supplying their first vehicle to the European market, a 1989 Ford Probe imported from the Canadian market.

The Move To Canada 


Jan and wife, Jana, move to Canada to begin expanding the sourcing of vehicles and parts for the quickly expanding family business.

Atlantic Auto Performance Ltd Is Born


Atlantic Auto Performance Ltd is formally incorporated in Canada. As international vehicle sales begin to increase, Jan and Jana work together to create a new brand.

Connecting The World


Atlantic Auto Performance is invited to join the newly created European Association of Independent Vehicle Traders (EAIVT), forming new and long lasting international partnerships.

European Growth


As the Euro reaches all time highs, the Atlantic Auto Performance supply network stretches across Canada, the US, and Mexico, allowing for record breaking sales.

China Opens Import


As China looks to expand its burgeoning vehicle market, the Chinese government opens the market to parallel vehicle trade. A new era of sales and Letter of Credit processing has begun.

The Electric Revolution


After years of developing strong ties within China's automotive networks, Atlantic Auto Performance begins to import electric vehicles from China to the European marketplace.


Jan is honest and fair. I think that is the culture at Atlantic Auto Performance - both as a supplier and customer. Good business needs to work for everyone!

Always on time! Always reliable! Well organized! Jan and the Atlantic Auto Performance team are always there to help my business grow.

Jan and Atlantic Auto represent the top tier of professionalism in the industry. They offer timely communication and transparency with regards to all issues. The depth of AAP’s industry experience is a game changer that sets them apart from all other providers in this space.

As a franchised dealer supplying vehicles to Jan and his team at Atlantic Auto Performance, I have always found them a true pleasure to work with. I commend them for their professionalism, and a true commitment to customer service, honesty and integrity.
