ALLDATA celebrates 25th anniversary
Nov. 1, 2011—Automotive business solutions provider ALLDATA is celebrating its 25th anniversary.
The ALLDATA team led by Rod Georgiu created electronic automotive repair information, and since its inception, the company has been headquartered in Elk Grove, Calif. In 1996, AutoZone Inc. bought ALLDATA, which complemented its professional auto parts business.
Then in 2008, ALLDATA celebrated its 70,000th product subscriber, and about three years later the company announced a record 80,000 subscribers.
“In 1986 our founders had a vision,” said ALLDATA President Jeff Lagges. “Since then, we have continued to lead the industry with innovative products that drive efficiencies and profitability throughout a shop’s operations. We like to say that we offer ‘counter-to-fender’ solutions, and it’s true. Our growth has been a direct result of anticipating needs and listening to our customers. We owe a great debt to our customers for helping us develop products that have a positive impact on their businesses.”
