History of Ace Auto
January 20, 2005
Our defining moment (although we didn’t know it at the time)
At 11am our dismantling shop erupted in fire, fueled by spilled gasoline. It immediately became evident that fire extinguishers weren’t going to be effective. The fire quickly raged out of control, closing Rice Street for the remainder of the day.
Lucky for us that our firewall held and our valuable computer data was spared. We hardly missed a beat and opened the charred doors the following morning and were back in business, although a different business as we lost a lot of inventory.
After many months of insurance headaches, temporary structures, planning and construction, we moved into our fabulous new facility on June 12, 2006. We now can provide our customers with ample parking, comfortable and clean waiting area and a more pleasant and efficient sales process.
