Tigard Tire and Auto Named 2015 Tigard Chamber Business of the Year

Tigard Tire and Auto, owned by Steve Richmond has been selected as the 2015 Tigard Chamber Business of the Year.  This award recognizes a chamber business that has made in-depth contributions to the Tigard community through their business. The winner is active, involved, interested, and enthusiastic about continuing to make Tigard a destination of choice for local business. Nominee must be a chamber member in good standing.Since 1986, Steve Richmond, owner of Tigard Tire and Auto, has been dedicated to building long-lasting, sustainable relationships with his customers. He believes in building trust, keeping his customers’ best interests in mind, and doing good work, all while keeping a relaxed, low-pressure atmosphere. He never recommends a repair a customer doesn’t need and he always does his best to tell his customers the right thing to do. His customers say: “Steve has always gone above and beyond to take care of my family.  His work is incredible and more than once he has recommended against having unnecessary work done at the expense of his own income.  His integrity is beyond reproach and I would (and have) recommend Tigard Tire & Auto to anyone who owns a vehicle.” “Someone called me this morning for a survey on another company and asked the question “What is a company you do business with that you would hold as an example of excellent customer service?” Without thinking, I told them it was Tigard Tire & Auto. Steve and his staff have been extremely knowledgeable, ethical, and helpful whenever I’ve taken my car in for service. I trust them completely which, unfortunately, feels weird to say about an Auto Shop. I cannot recommend them highly enough.” “Most people don’t trust auto repair shops for a good reason – there are some bad apples out there. Tigard Tire and Automotive outshines them all – not just because they do great work, but because you can Trust them. They have solved several puzzling problems I’ve had with my work rigs and my family van – and even given me some valuable free advice over the phone. I own my own business so I look at businesses from that angle, and I’ve always been impressed by these guys, and especially the owner, Steve Richmond. He is good as gold. Honest and trustworthy. Stop looking around and call these guys if you need some work done on your car!” In addition to Steve’s work in his business, he’s also very involved in the Tigard community giving his time and support to the Sunshine Division, Oregon Paralyzed Veterans of America, the Tigard Area Chamber of Commerce, the Tigard Area Farmers Market and Tigard/Tualatin Relay for Life.  Steve has been an active chamber member for over 15 years, is an adamant supporter of the Shop Local initiative reinforcing that message at every chamber weekly networking meeting and a helpful hand to Tigard Area Chamber of Commerce members, its staff and the Tigard community.  He can be seen every year at the Chamber’s Bowl-O-Rama event with multiple (winning) teams supporting the organization and Tigard Chamber Scholarship Fund.
