ALLDATA Crosses Major Milestone, Capturing 70,000 Aftermarket Repair Shop Subscribers Demand for OEM service and repair information continues to fuel ALLDATA's momentum in 2008
Elk Grove, CA – June 4, 2008 – ALLDATA® LLC, the leading provider of manufacturers’ automotive repair information and solutions for the professional automotive service industry, today announced it has reached an historic milestone by capturing over 70,000 automotive repair shop subscribers. The 70,000th subscriber is My Tech Automotive in Beaufort, South Carolina, owned by John Prussia.
Prussia recently opened his own automotive repair facility after working in the field for more than 15 years. “I chose ALLDATA because everything I need is in there. I am very excited to be ALLDATA’s 70,000th subscriber and I want everyone to know it,” said Prussia.
A ceremony commemorating the milestone, held at ALLDATA’s Elk Grove, California headquarters, was attended by employees and members of the national automotive press. ALLDATA President Jeff Lagges produced a video for the event, which included comments from company founder Rod Georgiu, early team members, current long-term employees and long-time customers.
Speaking directly to ALLDATA employees, Lagges said, “Three things I learned while doing the video. One is the deep appreciation and respect we have for our customers; two, the pride and commitment you have in ensuring ALLDATA’s success; and three, even after 20 years, the deep passion and pride the founding members have in reflecting on our beginnings and our accomplishments.”
