The Suddeth family has offered automotive services in the Columbia area since 1971. Joe T. Suddeth and sons opened a service station (Richland Mall Exxon) in the Forest Acres area of Columbia. In the late 80’s it became apparent that the Suddeths would have to close the service station due to lease agreements and the oil company policy at that time. The service station closed in the summer of 1990.
On February 6, 1990 Suddeth Automotive Service, Inc. was opened at 1410 N. Millwood Avenue. The business started with two employees, and has consistently expanded over the years. Suddeth Automotive Service is now managed & owned by Mike Suddeth and employs certified technicians, a technician in training, and a support team of service advisors, an office manager, and a porter. Suddeth Automotive Service has been blessed over the years with top-notch staff and some of the world’s greatest customers. With this combination of employees and loyal customers, Suddeth Automotive Service, Inc. expects to flourish and grow into the 2010's.
