A brief history of Wedge Kyes Imports from the owner:     

 

My personal history in the automotive business began at my grandfather’s auto dealership, Standard Motor Car Company. He had purchased the business in the late 1940’s after being a very successful salesman there. As a young boy I worked there beginning doing various chores, parts sales, mechanic work, and finally working as an assistant service manger until the business was sold in the late 1970’s. I decided at that time to break from the automotive field and try something else, so I went to school for industrial instrumentation. I pursued this industrial career for about 5 years, specializing in rotating equipment diagnostics. When I returned to the automotive field, I realized that my industrial experience had given me a very different perspective of purpose and necessity to correctly repair any given problem. I then worked for Prevost Motors for a short time as shop foreman handling all technical training and troubleshooting problem cars from Volvo, Volkswagen, and Dodge as well as managing a shop with 17 technicians. 

I started my business, Wedge Kyes Import Specialties, in 1984 as a one-man shop. My intention was to take my experience in the automotive and mechanical maintenance fields and offer a personal expertise that no other shop could match. The business soon began to grow, and I was very fortunate to be able to add conscientious and skilled employees to the expanding work force. After 26 years we now employ seven technicians all with manufacturer’s training from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, and Volkswagen and continue to give them the needed tools and training to excel in their technical training growth. We have continued to grow in size and services offered, but we will never compromise our original goals of providing the highest level of personal service.

Sincerely,

Wedge Kyes
