APH is pleased to announce the addition of Automate Parts and Machine Shop to its family of independently-owned Auto Value parts stores.

Keith and Jane Moser, owners and operators of the parts store and machine shop, have been serving Winner, South Dakota, and its surrounding community since 2002, when they purchased the business from Mike Tyra and property from Tom Collins’ estate. The original building was built around 1902, as a livery stable for the railroad and later a gas station and General Motors dealership, before transitioning to a parts store and machine shop.

Since joining Auto Value in late January, the Mosers and APH have been busy expanding the store’s inventory, updating product lines, resetting the entire showroom, and cleaning and polishing the floor. Keith and Jane are confident the improvements will allow their store to better meet the parts and supplies needs of area businesses and residents.

On the service side of the business, the family-owned store will continue to offer a full-service machine shop, hydraulic hose replacement service, flat glass cutting, as well as free battery, starter and alternator testing. They will also continue to install wiper blades purchased from the store free of charge.

For hard-to-find parts, Automate Parts and Machine Shop will rely on APH’s overnight delivery service. APH’s distribution center, one of the largest in the Midwest, is well-known for its broad inventory of parts and supplies for import, small engine, agricultural and heavy-duty applications.

Automate Parts and Machine Shop is located at 126 West 1st Street and is open from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. The Mosers can be reached at 605-842-3542.

A grand reopening celebration is scheduled for Thursday, May 7th, 2020. In the meantime, the Mosers invite area residents to stop by, meet the team and see the exciting changes taking place.
