Merrill Automotive is currently open for business to assist our community. We are taking extra precautions, limiting person to person contact inside the shop and with customers and vendors as much as possible. We are cleaning and disinfecting much more frequently than we normally do. Additionally, to make it easy for our customers we are available through Email, Texting, our Digital Inspection Platform, and of course on the Phone. Please reach-out to us if you have any questions or need help with your Vehicle repair and maintenance, we are here for you!

Our History

About Us | Merrill Automotive

Merrill Axle & Wheel Service founded in 1928 by Marcellus S. Merrill.  Marcellus was a noteworthy inventor, engineer and manufacturer. At one point, Merrill Axle & Wheel Service grew to three locations in the Denver metro area.  Before World War II Merrill had shops in Nebraska, Iowa and California. Marcellus was seeking new equipment that didn't exist.  He went on to invent the world’s first dynamic electronic wheel balancer (pictured).

Kevin Bachman is the third and current President of the company.  He is a local Colorado kid, growing up in northern Colorado.  Kevin now lives in the Denver Metro area where he and his wife Elizabeth are raising their children.  Since acquiring Merrill the Bachman family has been updating the local auto repair business.  This is to better serve it's tremendous customer base.  Some updates include a modern logo and simplified business name.  We continue to operate with the highest regard for customers and the vehicles they depend on. Maintaining our great reputation that spans over 90 years is of the utmost importance to us!


Collectively we can do anything.  This is a hard working bunch that takes car care seriously.  We have families and friends in the community we serve.  Our outstanding customers, some that have visited us for decades, make this challenging and exciting profession our life's work.
