Congdon Auto Center Inc. originated as Fairbank Congdon Co., a partnership formed by Dexter Fairbank and Newton Congdon in 1928. The company started out selling new Pontiac and Oldsmobile vehicles, as well as providing repair services. With the passing of Dexter Fairbank in 1951, Fairbank Congdon Co. continued as a single proprietorship until it was incorporated as Congdon Pontiac Oldsmobile in 1975. Brothers Bruce and Dana Congdon came into the business as secretary/treasurer and president respectively. Business remained brisk through 1997, at which time the decision was made to discontinue selling and servicing new vehicles, and to start a new independent phase as Congdon Auto Center continuing with repair services, but now selling used cars.
While Bruce and Dana had their hands full with a large portion of the business being used car sales, a third generation came aboard with Gary & Jay Congdon. Gary has made running the service department the main focus during his 14 years with the company. Jay does all the little things in the back round that help a service shop run smoothly like maintaining the building and grounds. Together the family was able to restructure and revitalize the service department by providing ASE Certified mechanics with over 30 years of experience respectively to work on any type of job, both foreign and domestic.
The most recent addition has been the youngest brother Scott, who is putting his efforts towards used car sales. Bruce and Scott both attend live auctions weekly in search of positive additions to their used car inventory, as well as for customers in search of a specific vehicle.
