Duffy’s Repair Service: Founded in 1981
Duffy’s Repair Service was started and incorporated in November 1981. Billy Duffy started the business and operated it at night while running the shop at Brookhill Construction during the day. In July 1983 Billy left Brookhill and took on running the business full time with daytime hours. In August of 1985, after considerable growth Duffy’s moved to its present location at 9974 Lickinghole Rd. The building was shared with R.V. Services of Va. until further growth required use of the entire building.
In July 1999 Duffy’s expanded again by acquiring a portion of some bordering property with a building, adding an additional 3,000 square feet of shop space and a half acre of parking. Duffy’s grew from being just Billy and his tools to a shop of 10 technicians, 3 service writers, a technical supervisor, a parts delivery driver and an office manager.
In February 2005, Billy purchased the building on the corner next to the main shop. With the addition of 6 lifts, lots of open floor space and a detail shop, Duffy’s continues to expand. This allows us to offer the customer even more services, and allows us to expand our equipment.
In the winter of 2006, Duffy’s air conditioned the 2 larger buildings of our 3 building complex, making Duffy’s Repair one of the biggest climate controlled independent shops in the Richmond area.
On November 1st, 2011, Duffy’s Repair Service and the Duffy Family celebrated 30-years of being in business. A great testimate to how the Richmond area community supports small and local business.
