Chris and John Helder
Former Owners, Z Tire & Auto Service
"My husband, John, and I are the previous owners of Z Tire & Auto Service in Grand Haven, MI. At the time my husband and I started thinking of selling the business he had been at Z Tire & Auto Service for 32+ years and the business itself had been in our hometown community since the mid 1970’s. It was very important to us that whomever we sold the business to have similar morals, beliefs, and customer service to our employees and customers. John cared for “his” customers and wanted to make sure he did the best he could to sell the business to someone that would take care of them in the future as closely to how he would have as possible. Not only did Dykstra Auto fulfill those needs, but they were also a great group of people to work with during the sale process and our exit transition period. It was a smooth and seamless transaction; we couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Now on to our next adventure!"
"The company I worked for was acquired by Dytech Auto Group. Of course, there was a natural nervousness among our employees about how the change of ownership would affect our employees. What we found was that after a few months, things had of course changed. Yet the changes were positive and Dytech followed through on everything they said they would do. Doing what they said they would do went a long way in building trust and comfort within our group of employees."
Former Owner, Douglas Automotive
"After almost 30 years of building and operating a successful auto repair business, I knew it was time to create an exit strategy. Since I was not ready to exit completely, selling my business to Dytech accomplished the sale part, but also provided me with the opportunity to continue using my gifts and talents to make an even bigger impact. I am super happy with my decision to become part of the Dytech Team."
