Jim Coleman Company - President Since 1995 - Employee since 1974

Mission Statement . . . . .

"to lead the car wash industry through experience, innovation and vision with the most dependable car wash equipment available today"

Having held a position at Jim Coleman Company since 1974, I have had the pleasure of working with and helping to mold a growing company. Over the years I have enjoyed many different roles from my humble beginning in the service department to Design Engineer to my present position of President. My daily responsibilities include administration, finance, banking, research and design, marketing, equipment sales, and manufacturing expansion and I take an active position in the development of the Water Wizard from design to written programs for the unit.

I have owned and operated self-serve carwashes since 1978 and presently own and operate two successful locations - one of them having a high pressure TouchFree Automatic.
