Servicing car washes in Eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and Northern Maryland:
Turnkey Automotive Solutions, LLC is a the only true full-service car wash service company in the Mid-Atlantic region. From site selection to design to chemical and maintenance, if it is in a car wash, Turnkey has done it. The professional services offered by Turnkey Automotive Solutions reflect our broad scope of expertise. Whether you are looking to acquire your first car wash; refresh, reload or repair an existing car wash; or embark on new construction, we deliver the services and resources you need to complete the project in a cost-conscious, time-effective, and quality-driven manner. We will consistently tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear because we will be there with you long after the sale, when you need us most.
Founded by two partners, Nate Gagnon and John Tahtabrounian, in 2015, Turnkey was created to be a different type of car wash sales and service company. With the knowledge of what was currently working for car washes and their existing service companies and vision of what the type of full inhouse support that was obviously lacking, Nate Gagnon and John Tahtabrounian, created Turnkey to leverage their client partnership take on car wash sales and service as well as bring all aspects for car wash needs to one supplier, Turnkey Automotive Solutions. We take knowledge and experience from other industries, past experiences, and new trends and developments to provide our clients with an unmatched, complete, and ever evolving experience.
Nate Gagnon, partner and co-founder, is the Director of Operations and Services who collaborates with car wash investors, owners and operators to maintain and grow their professional car wash businesses. After spending nearly twenty years in car wash industry in positions ranging from an entry level equipment technician to sales, management and then all the way to an entrepreneur himself, Nate knows what separates him from the all the rest and has helped mold Turnkey Automotive Solutions in that model – his clients are his partners. Nate and Turnkey are only as successful as their clients are and those relationships are vitally important.
Nate is a factory certified technician for Motor City Wash Works, Mark VII Equipment, Belanger, and PDQ and has installed and/or serviced all equipment brands and business models. He has extensive experience working with major oil companies, multi-site operators, single site owner/operators, and new investors and demonstrates an understanding of the unique needs of each. Nate has traveled
throughout the country as a manufacturer’s consultant to assist other distributors with technical or installation issues. He has also worked on equipment in seventeen states across the US which gives him an exclusive viewpoint on trends beyond this region. Mr. Gagnon’s vast industry experience in the commercial car wash industry have been in the roles of service, operation and sales management giving him a unique understanding of market trends, customer and equipment needs, and extensive regional knowledge.
John Tahtabrounian, principal, co-founded Turnkey Automotive Solutions as a fully independent spin-off from Oliver Construction, Incorporated, his highly successful commercial construction company established nearly 20 years ago. He could see that his car dealership clients were underserved in the car wash market by their current providers and wanted to help them have a more complete and successful experience. His vast knowledge of the commercial real estate construction including planning, design, build and best practices give Turnkey a unique perspective that other car wash companies simply do not have. John also has over 30 years of National and Regional Sales experience plus extensive operational expertise covering multiple industries that can be leveraged for larger scale chain companies as well.
