Triad Auto Specialty, Inc. began as a service to Honda owners in August of 1978. The original name of the company was Triad Honda Shop, Inc. Grant Swaim founded this Honda service and repair business on Mary street in Greensboro. By 1983, American Honda requested that all repair shops cease using the Honda name unless they were a Honda dealer; therefore our name evolved to Triad Auto Specialty, Inc.
In 1986 we built on West Wendover. At this point, the Acura was introduced by Honda, and with much enthusiasm we extended our service to these vehicles.
In 1994, the business was bought by two employees with sixteen years of service to the company: Terry Wagner and Ray Elliott. Fortunately, Terry and Ray were able to continue the Triad Auto tradition with the same experienced technicians. It was at this time that Grant Swaim started to produce Sure Seal's line of Specialty tools in addition to the already successful o-ring drain plugs. The special tools division has come and gone, but the O-Ring Drain Plug is here to stay! Grant has handed off production and supply of the Sure Seal Products back over to us here at Triad Auto and we have handled the line since 2001.
Under our new ownership Triad Auto Specialty, Inc. made our last two moves to Boeing, and lastly into our own building located at 7208 Cessna Drive, Greensboro, NC27409.
Now, heading into our 45th year of business we have grown to 12 employees and feel we have been greatly blessed.
TRIAD AUTO is one of the largest "INDEPENDENT" garages serving only Honda and Acura automobile owners since 1978. We are not associated with, endorsed, sponsored or licensed by American Honda and do not wish to create such a false impression. We have worked extremely hard to create our own image and atmosphere. We do not sell cars, although our customers tell us we are the main reason they buy the Honda and Acura product. We do sell parts and use Genuine Parts, but are not allowed to use the "H" word for advertisement.
