Our Auto Repair Shop’s History
Merrill Axle & Wheel Service was founded in 1928 by Marcellus S. Merrill as a local auto repair business in the Denver area. Marcellus was a noteworthy inventor, engineer, and manufacturer. At one point, Merrill Axle & Wheel Service grew to three locations in the Denver-metro area. Before World War II, Merrill had shops in Nebraska, Iowa, and California. Marcellus was seeking new equipment that didn’t yet exist, so he went on to invent the world’s first dynamic electronic wheel balancer.
Today, Kevin Bachman is the third and current president of the company. He is a local Colorado kid, growing up in northern Colorado. Kevin now lives in the Denver-metro area where he and his wife Elizabeth are raising their children.
Since acquiring Merrill, the Bachman family has been updating the local auto repair business to better serve its tremendous customers. Some of these updates include a modern logo and a simplified business name.
We continue to operate with the highest regard for our valued customers and their vehicles. Maintaining our great reputation — which spans over 90 years — is of the utmost importance to us!
