If you live in the North East, chances are you’ve heard about AAMCO. Whether it’s their catchy “double A (beep beep) M-C-O” ad or you’ve been to their shop, their company is a household name. The transmission and total car care specialists opened their doors in 1962, with 3 small shops in Northeast Philadelphia. Now, in their 55th year, the company has over 600 franchise stores in the US and Canada.
In 2014 Gardner/Fox worked with AAMCO to renovate their headquarters in Bala Cynwyd, to upgrade their corporate image. The renovation included work to the lobby, main corridor, and the conference room. The work in the lobby included all new maple and stainless steel reveals in the detailed millwork, metal cross-hatched resilient flooring, and high tech lighting. One of the unique features was the custom developed storyboards detailing the corporate history that hang in the lobby.
