This month’s BuyAutoParts Shop Spotlight is Huelsman Automotive in Chickasaw, Ohio. This local business was opened June 1st, 1947 by Charles Huelsman and is still run today by his grandsons Tom & John, along with their wives Kathy & Linda. Today, the shop has 27 employees with over 400 years of combined experience and maintains a perfect 5-star Google rating.
In addition to the service garage, Huelsman Automotive also includes a parts store and a machine shop that can make hydraulic hoses to order, both of which serve the agricultural industry in Mercer County as well as regular passenger cars and trucks. The garage has a state-of-the-art Hunter alignment machine and OEM-level scan tools (as well as OEM parts) for all the domestic brands. Their parts warehouse has name-brand tires, along with mounting and balancing equipment and TPMS diagnostic tools.
If you happen to be located along the Ohio/Indiana border, Huelsman Automotive is the kind of family owned and operated business you want to be supporting these days. They’ve been around nearly 75 years, operated not only by multiple generations of one family, but many of their neighbors as well, becoming both a major employer and an incredibly helpful and valuable team to have in their community. They are open Monday thru Friday, 8 am to 5 pm, as well as 8 am to noon on Saturdays, and can be reached during those hours at 419-925-4711
