Perfect Equipment Celebrates 75 Years, Donates to Charity

75thEvent-SpecialKids-CheckPerfect Equipment, a Wegmann Automotive brand, is celebrating 75 years of business this August.

“We are proud of our company’s heritage and the hard work of its people over the last 75 years,” said Jeff Waechter, president and CEO of Wegmann Automotive. “Our goal is to continue to service the needs of the market and our customers and create a fun and safe work environment for our employees to flourish in.”

The company celebrated 75 years in business with a celebration at Lane, Train & Automobiles near its headquarters in Murfreesboro, Tenn. The event also featured a donation to the local non-profit Special Kids of Murfreesboro.

Perfect Equipment was founded August 31, 1939, by William P. Smissen in Kokomo, Ind. In the 1960s, the company relocated its headquarters to its current location in Tennessee. In 2005, Wegmann Automotive acquired the Perfect Equipment brand. Today, the brand is available in more than 35 countries around the world, the company said.
