In July of 2016, Darla & Greg Pessimier, owners of Pessemier’s Complete Automotive, retired.  Eric, was able to acquire their building adding a second location.  As the business continued to grow the original Gig Harbor location was becoming too small. In his search for a new location he found that Rob, owner of RC’s Auto Repair, wanted to retire.  Eric was able to acquire this location in Dec of 2018, allowing Stroh’s Automotive Services to relocate and at the same time upgrade their Gig Harbor facility.

This has seen Stroh’s Automotive Services grow from a 2 bay shop that operated from a separate garage next to his home to 2 locations and 10 bays.  This growth would not have been possible without the support of the “extended family” which includes our employees and customers.

Family owned and operated, Eric is a 3rd Generation Small Business Owner.  His grandparents opened Stroh’s Feed Store, in Gig Harbor in 1950.  His father and Aunts continued to run the store until 2011 when the store closed and was sold to Wilco Farm Stores.  Eric takes pride in carrying on the Stroh family name by continuing to run his shops where all his employees are treated like family and the customers are always welcomed as if they are an extended family member.
