For 74 years, Dey Distributing has been the place to go for parts. Adolph and Florence Dey founded Dey Distributing, then called Dey L.P. Gas, in 1944. At first they worked out of their home, but they soon moved to a small store in downtown St. Paul. Adolph sold parts and did service work, while Florence kept the books and had her hands full with five children, even changing diapers on the city desk counter. The Deys built their business on a strong foundation of hard work, integrity, and a commitment to customer service that follows the Golden Rule: treat others as you would like to be treated.
