About Us

"Honesty and integrity are the foundation of our business. We take pride in the trust we build with our customers."

our history

Owner Charles Davidge bought Detroit Auto Electric over 40 years ago when it was just a small auto repair shop with two employees. At the time, he was a young man working as a driver delivering furniture. When an opportunity came up to purchase an auto repair shop, he jumped at it and began servicing the same trucks he had been driving.

Over the past 40 years as Detroit Auto Eletric grew, we have continually upgraded our facility and equipment. The business has stayed in the Davidge family and is now under the direction of Shawn Castle.
