Green's Automotive Ltd: A Family Tradition Since 1953
In 1953, Blackie Green, a master welder and car modifier, founded Green's Wheel Repairs. He was a visionary and pioneer in the automotive industry, with an "anything is possible" attitude. He modified vehicles, parts, engines, and wheels to accommodate various designs. Blackie and his wife Ilean opened their first shop in a back alley on Granville Street in Vancouver.
Since its creation, Green's Wheel Repairs has continually been run by the Green family. Bob Green, their son, diversified the company by creating innovative ways to repair and modify steel and aluminum wheels. The company has grown over the years, with Elaine (Bob's wife), Brad, and Jaime (Bob's children) actively involved in the business.
Green's Wheel Repairs has become a leading wheel repair and custom modification shop in Western Canada. We have developed a strong foothold in the wheel repair business by increasing our manufacturing equipment, providing in-house training, and relocating multiple times to larger facilities in Richmond. The company employs 25 employees, many of whom are family members, most of whom have been with the business for decades.
The Green family's enthusiasm and dedication have helped them react and succeed in a fast-moving world. Their passion has paved the way for accomplishing Bob Green's long-term vision and drives their will to continue. They are ambitious and believe in producing a final product equal to a replacement. They aim to exceed their customers' expectations while improving with modern technology and procedures to safely service them.
Green's Wheel Repairs has an ethical approach to business that is the source of their entrepreneurial spirit. They have innovated repair procedures and developed guidelines for The Motor Vehicle Act of British Columbia, and set safety regulations that must be followed in accordance with the Insurance Company of British Columbia.
Overall, Green's Wheel Repairs has a long-standing history of excellence, innovation, and commitment to its customers.
