Bradham Automotive, known for many years as Bradham Auto Electric, opened in its doors in 1948. The business was started by Lawrence “Brad” Bradham. Brad moved the shop from its original Alfred St. location to the current location in 1949. Mr. Bradham operated the business until 1970, when it was purchased by one of his Technicians, George Crowder.   George operated the business until 2010. When he retired, George turned the business over to his son, John Crowder.  John and his Mom, Shirley, continue to operate the company today.  Sixty-five years of history here! Generations of Metro area families have counted on this family to take care of their vehicles.  That kind of longevity is hard to find.

Through the nearly 7 decades that we’ve been in business, the automotive industry has been undergoing many changes. One thing that will never change is our commitment to our customers. We will continue to uphold the highest standards in customer service, honesty, integrity and quality work.
