Five Star Rep Group was first started as Abernathy Sales in 1970 by a retired WWII veteran named Machen Abernathy. Abernathy’s first product line was Pioneer Quick Coupling, now a division of Parker Hannifin. His continued hard work and dedication laid the groundwork for Five Star to become a successful manufacturers’ representative corporation. Machen Abernathy passed away in November 2007, but our values and principles still mirror his philosophy of honesty, integrity, hard work, and customer relations. As proof, we still represent Pioneer Quick Coupling over 45 years later, along with many others with whom we have worked with for over 30 years.
