How many employees do you have?
240 employees throughout our 16 locations across MD and PA.

Why do you believe you will continue to be successful in Frederick County?
We provide service for our customers that is convenient and allows them to spend their free time on things they deem important while we handle mundane car care chores. Having been an active part of the Frederick community for the past 25 years,we know Frederick is a community that values small business.

If your company is involved in community outreach, please share with us your involvement.
WLR Automotive Group, in celebration of their 25th anniversary, recently completed the inaugural $25k Giveaway for Good Contest which awards five local community groups each $5,000 to fulfill a Project for Good. The 2013 winners and details of the contest can be found at www.25kGiveawayForGood.com. We wanted to celebrate 25 years in business by giving back to the communities who supported us all this time. By investing in our communities, we hope to plant seeds which will grow into a strong foundation for the future. It is our intention to continue this community investment opportunity each year. Since their inception, The Lube Center, The Auto Spas, and The Auto Repairs have adopted a philosophy of giving and donate significantly each year to local groups.

What are you most proud of?
I am proud of a number of things but the one that stands out the most is the culture of our company which has not changed over the last 25 years. Everyone that is part of our organization has one focus and goal and that is to be the best; to give the best customer service, the best experience, offer the best products and have the best looking facilities. We are in a very competitive market and the only way that we continue to be successful is not to just say that we are the best but to actually be the best. As I visit our locations, I am proud of service we give our customers each and every day.
