In August 2008, Chad married his wife, Lisa. At the same time, he decided to launch Winters Automotive in Mountville. Initially, the business focused on cleaning cars, and eventually, it also started servicing cars and trucks. In early 2009, Chad opened the car lot and a full-service repair shop that also offered state inspections, emissions, and much more. As Winters Automotive grew, Chad started looking for a larger location where the business could grow. In April 2013, Winters Automotive bought M & P Motors and opened up at 39 W. Maple St., East Prospect, located in York County. Chad’s employees from his Mountville shop have joined him at the East Prospect location.
In need of a trailer chad and his wife Lisa went out looking for a trailer. After a long Saturday of looking at so many manufactures and not happy with the service of the salespeople at the places they went, Chad decided to open a trailer dealership. He felt he could do a better job of taking caring of his customers and helping them find what they were looking for. In early November Chad made a deal with Forest River to become a Forest River Dealer and a Pequea Dealer.
