About Us - The Dressel's Story

Dressels crewIn 1962 Martin Merrill purchased Dressel's Service Station from Bob Dressel. At that time the business was already 30 years old and was an established landmark in the town of Granby where everyone came in for automotive repairs, gasoline, and to find out the "local news & gossip". Martin worked very hard to take care of all the customers that came in, which, given the population of Granby in the 50's & 60's, were neighbors, friends, and friends of neighbors. Over the next 30 years Martin and his wife Jeanne built a very honest, trustworthy, automotive repair business that grew by word-of-mouth, all while growing a family of 2 daughters & 4 sons!


ParentsToday those 4 sons, Russell, Scott, Steve, and Doug, with additional family support from Doug's wife Lisa and Scott's son Ryan, continue to offer the great service that Martin & Jeanne Merrill had established. In the beginning of 2008, Dressel's was fortunate to add ASE certified, Granby native, Nick Smith to their workforce. Together, everyone collaborates to make sure that the customer receives the best service possible.
