Bader Service and Sales Inc., Salix

Husband and wife, Aaron and Allison Bader, decided to open up Bader Service and Sales Inc. in April 2016. Aaron had previously worked as a mechanic and shop foreman for several trucking companies for nearly 10 years. He realized he wanted to be his own boss and put customers first.

Based out of Salix, Iowa, Bader Service and Sales Inc. perform diesel repair, automotive repair, and custom tuning. With two full-time and three part-time employees they have been able to grow into a bigger building. They hope to be able to keep expanding and add new jobs.

They contribute to the community by helping out the local fire departments and the local school district with automotive repair needs. They even have been the location for a preschool field trip. Bader Service and Sales Inc. can also do mobile repair where they will go to local farmers and/or local businesses in order to help them with mechanical problems.

They said of working with the Western Iowa Tech SBDC director Todd Rausch, “We reached out to Todd to help guide us in all of the things that are needed to officially start a business. He provided great resources.” They suggest that anyone looking to start their own business needs to be organized and that although the legal paperwork may be challenging, it is worth it.
