Dahmer Powertrain, Inc. was founded in 1975. The president, Jerry Dahmer, owned and operated an automobile dealership from 1974 to 2002. Dahmer Chevrolet was opened in 1974 in Independence, Mo. Not long after opening, the dealership had an opportunity to purchase a large volume of engines from a local farm machinery manufacturer. That inventory was ultimately purchased and subsequently sold in a timely manner. This was the beginning of this business which has operated under the following names;
Dahmer Chevrolet – 1975
Dahmer Sales Division – 1976-1987
Cable Dahmer Chevrolet- 1988-2002
In September of 2002, Cable Dahmer was sold to one of its top managers. The engine division was separated and moved to a larger facility that better suited our needs and began operating under the current name; Dahmer Powertrain. We purchase powertrain products from large and small companies that have inventories that they want liquidated, but don’t have the connections nor the expertise to sell on their own. As our business has grown, we have actively recruited employees with strong technical backgrounds and above average people skills. This has led to an average growth of 20% per year for the last four years.
In the beginning, our customer base focused on bread companies. They had large fleets of vehicles and our products matched their needs. We grew the business by selling quality products at competitive prices and developed a reputation for excellence in our field. Today our customer base is widely diverse. From the bread companies that were with us in the beginning to the world’s largest package delivery company, from family owned repair shops to the largest dealerships in the country, from fleet maintenance companies of all sizes to extended warranty providers, from companies with fleets numbering in the thousands of vehicles to the individual that needs to keep the family wagon on the road, we specialize in meeting all of their powertrain needs.
It is our policy to provide a full range of products and services to all customers. These products and services will be priced competitively and delivered with customer satisfaction as our number one goal. All employees will be fully trained and will conduct business in a positive and professional manner.
