VIDEO HERE: Zimmerman’s celebrates 100 years
See the 100 year celebration at Zimmerman Motors:
SUNBURY –They have been around for 124 years and 100 of those have been in Sunbury. Zimmerman Motors celebrated their 100th anniversary this week.
It marks five generations says President Bob Zimmerman. “We moved to Sunbury in 1913. In 1916 we build one of the current facilities that my great-grandfather Calvin built.”
Zimmerman says the business has hard their share of tough times with a big economic downturn in 2008 and the 2011 flood that heavily damaged their Route 61 building. He says now, that they are back and better than ever. He says, “We see growth for the future. If you don’t plan for growth, you prepare for failure. So, we are planning for growth.”
A celebration was held this week where past, and hopefully future, customers came to the Sunbury location for a night of food, games, entertainment and more. (Sara Bartlett)
