Our History

 

Overbeck Auto Services started with a dream and a plan.  Steve Overbeck returned from the Navy and
Vietnam in 1971, ready to start his own auto repair business with a better idea.  Experienced as an auto dealership line mechanic, Steve knew he had to find a way to provide better, more personalized service.  And he did. With his wife, Ann, as his partner, their first shop was in Oakley. In 1990 they moved to Madisonville where Overbeck Auto Services is now in its 43rd year of business.  Since the beginning Steve emphasized continual training to keep up with new technology so we can continue to exceed our customers’ expectations.

 

Matt Overbeck, Steve and Ann’s son, is now at the helm.  He grew up under Steve’s wing learning the automotive repair trade from the best.  Starting with cleaning parts and sweeping floors as a child, to rebuilding a Pontiac Catalina as a teenager, and earning a mechanical engineering degree from the University of Cincinnati, Matt is fully committed to seeing his Dad’s dream grow, thrive, and prosper.

 

This past November 2018 found Overbeck’s taking over Ray and Ron’s Auto Service in Amelia OH from Ray Jessee, Steve’s personal friend and colleague. Both men’s businesses started in the 70’s when engines still used carburetors and emission controls were a new technology. Both men aspired to the highest degree of personal, thoughtful, friendly service with the highest degree of professionalism.  It must have worked because here we are over 40 years later providing their brand of automotive services at both facilities.
