The history of the Autohaus – Stuttgart garage starts in 1967, when Michalis Goularas and Savvas Charpantidis decide to establish their own garage. They both had excellent technical knowledge and several years of experience in Mercedes – Benz passenger vehicles. Both had worked in Germany and at VIAMAX – the general dealership at the time of Mercedes in Greece.

So they establish the Autohaus – Stuttgart garage at the junction of Peireos St. and Amorgou St. (known as ‘ELAIS’ bus stop) at Kaminia, Peireus. .

The garage included electrical and panel-beating workshops. It was the first Mercedes-Benz garage in Peireus.

1978 Workshop at 93 Peireos St.

In 1973 the garage moved next door, at 93, Peireos St. It is more spacious so a paint workshop is added. Thus a vertical unit is created, so that clients have access to all necessary services for vehicle repair.

The identity of the garage though remains unchanged. It continues to service and repair exclusively Mercedes-Benz vehicles. By now it has become widely known for its technical knowledge and high quality service. As a result, it attracts many customers, including shipping magnates from Peireus, artists, politicians and others, famous or not.

Many owners of commercial vehicles, both from mainland Greece and the islands, become Autohaus-Stuttgart customers for servicing and repairing their vehicles.

 

The Autohaus-Stuttgart garage remains at the same address till December 2009. Then the garage moves into new premises at 4, Amorgou St. in response to the new financial situation and the current economic climate.
