When Matt Bourne got into auto recycling in 2005 he had limited experience. Now he is the owner and founder of SoCal Mercedes Parts LLC and doing business with four of the country's top 20 Mercedes-Benz dealerships.
"He has learned a lot," said Eddie Stein, sales consultant for the Orange, Calif. business (SoCalMercedesParts.com). "He's learned what to do correctly to retain our customer base."
Stein said Bourne's decision to do things right and focus on service has put him ahead of the rest. Gary Johnson, owner of Johnson Motor Cars in Orange, Calif. is one of Bourne's repeat customers.
"He's never let us down," Johnson said. "We're always in need of a good auto recycler ... and he's all that."
