My name is John Beazley and in February 1986 I decided to turn my passion for cars into a business. I took $300 worth of tools and supplies and started on this amazing journey to add style and flair to the cars, trucks, boats, and other vehicles of my friends and family. With their support and encouragement, I approached a number of local car dealerships about providing on-site customized services for their clients. You can only imagine how tough it was to “sell” to professional salesmen.
It took several months of persistence to win them over, but I haven’t looked back since. Seeing the innovative concept designs on display at the dealerships, new car clients could envision the endless possibilities to customize their new car with personal touches that were uniquely their own. Autuko, Inc., Inc. was born and quickly expanded to several of the leading dealerships in the area.
In 1995, we opened our first retail location to cater to the growing trend of customization, including chromed parts and other specialty items. Our retail shop quickly developed a fan base among serious car enthusiasts, and we continued to service the dealership community through our on-site service teams.
Over the past 20+ years—through our unwavering commitment to quality, creativity and customer service— Autuko, Inc., Inc. has become Central Virginia’s leader in auto customization and vehicle graphics, and built a client list that includes NASCAR, the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) and Kings Dominion. We have worked with nearly every major automaker and worked on the full spectrum of vehicles, from consumer cars to commercial service vehicles, buses and tractor trailers, providing the highest quality customization and vehicle graphic services in the region.
Autuko, Inc. is proud to be the recipient of numerous awards and certifications—We were recognized as one of the “top shops of the year” by Auto Trim Magazine, and we boast certifications from 3M, Avery and SEMA. These honors are just a few more reasons why Autuko, Inc. is Central Virginia’s leading vinyl graphic installation provider.
