East David Automotive is an independently owned, full-service automotive repair shop founded in 1984 by Bill Emmons and Ray Braun. We started out in an old two-bay Sohio station. By 1988 we had outgrown our space and built a new building with five bays and a customer waiting room. In 2002 Bill bought out Ray's share of the business and became sole proprietor of East David Automotive. In 2005 we completed a large 4-bay addition and tore down the original building, completely changing our look.

We think we have some pretty terrific employees and we'd like to introduce them to you so that you can put a face to the name and the voice that you talk to on the phone.
