To develop business relationships with others that are built on respect and sincerity. To punctually provide the highest quality products available, and combine them with the optimal service that our customers deserve.
Automotive Paint & Equipment envisions a different type of business model. We believe that a solid business is built by creating phenomenal relationships, and working hard to make sure customers are not just satisfied, but impressed. Over the years, A.P.E. has grown to five separate locations in Georgia. Our goal is to continue to grow and to have a positive impact on the communities in which we call home.
Dean Wilkerson founded automotive Paint & Equipment in July of 1987 while still serving in the United States Air Force. Since then, the company has grown from a small store in Warner Robins to a chain of locations spread throughout southeast Georgia.
After being in business twelve years, A.P.E. finally had the opportunity to branch out. The second location was opened in Statesboro, and Lonnie Strickland was hired to run the store. It wasn't long before they'd taken over the market and in September 1999 Dean opened his third location in Savannah. Lonnie has increased the market that PPG has in the Statesboro/Savannah to heights A.P.E. had never seen, and has built a solid reputation of honesty and hard work.
Automotive Paint & Equipment continued to grow in sales during this time. In 2004, A.P.E.'s fifth location was opened in Brunswick. Dave Spence is the sales representative, and has almost 30 years of experience in the industry.
Business has continued to improve over the years due to its incredible employees and customer loyalty. Automotive Paint & Equipment is thankful for each customer who supports us, and we pledge to support you by providing the industry's best products with the industry's best customer service.
