Draper Chevrolet Toyota- Our History
We were founded in 1924 and we opened our present locations on Bay road in September of 1978. The Company, founded by Harold D. Draper, Sr., was originally named Heagany & Draper. The Company was founded on the principle that the public is entitled to the best service possible in satisfying its transportation needs.
Since 1924 we have sold and serviced hundreds of thousands of cars and trucks and have grown to be one of the top dealerships in the nation.
Our founder, Harold D. Draper Sr., envisioned the dynamic growth and progress experienced by our community, and his ethical business practices and sense of community leadership worked hand-in-hand in building and the success we now enjoy.
Reed T. Draper started the automobile business on a part-time basis when he was fourteen and worked in all phases of the operation. He became a franchise dealer when he was twenty-one and opened his own dealership in Bay City at the age of twenty-five. He was always active in community affairs having served as president of Saginaw General Hospital, chairman of the joint Development Committee, Saginaw Medical Center, and member of Saginaw Chamber of Commerce. He was Trustee of Northwood Institute and co-founder of the Automotive Merchandising Program at Northwood. He lectured at General Motors Institute on Business Management and Finance and Insurance. He attended New Hampton School in New Hampshire and the University of Michigan. He graduated from General Motors Institute of Technology with a degree in Business Management and graduated from Chevrolet Post Graduate School of Modern Merchandising and Management.
Rob Draper is continuing the tradition of excellence as a third generation automobile dealer. He became a franchised dealer in 1985. He graduated from Saginaw Valley State University with a degree in Business Management with a minor in Marketing. He is currently President and General Manager of the Organization.
Recognizing the continued growth for our community, we want to make sure that our business operates on principles that will keep pace. Present-day management strongly feels that our employees and customers are our greatest asset in the future growth and progress of The Draper Organization. Our Company philosophy is very simple; we want to make sure our customers are completely satisfied. Accordingly, we will strive in the conduct of our daily work to live by that philosophy.
