The German Auto Tech Story

German Auto Tech began over fifty years ago when Dietmar Strieder immigrated to the United States from Germany to pursue the American dream. Dietmar had worked at the Volkswagen factory in Germany as a mechanic, and once he arrived in the States he moved to West Memphis, AR where he started his own Volkswagen repair shop.

As time went on, he realized that the area needed more than a VW repair shop, so he retooled his business to include servicing on all European made vehicles. After 38 years of providing quality work, Dietmar decided take a lesser role in the shop, and let the next generation of Strieder's take over.

A New Generation Continues The Tradition

Dietmar's son, Michael, had been working on cars since he was old enough to hold a wrench, and in 2008 Dietmar officially handed him the German Auto Tech torch.

Since then Michael has expanded the business by updating equipment and installing the latest diagnostic software in the computer systems. Along the way he has sponsored local 5K's and other charitable events.

Cars and engines have gone through a lot of changes since Dietmar arrived in America in 1970, but one thing that hasn't changed is the high level of quality work that you get at German Auto Tech. Just like the masterful engineering that German and fine European automobiles are known for, German Auto Tech is known today for its high standards of excellence.
