Roy Rump & Sons’ founder, Roy D. Rump, has a rich history in the automotive and petroleum industry. He began his career in the early 1950s, as one of the first 25 employees of Canadian Petrofina Ltd. Through the years he worked his way through the ranks; from a bulk plant superintendent, to the Lessee Dealer of Canadian Petrofina service station, and then finally as the overall manager of a Fina pilot service station that had 3 auto repair bays and also wholesaled and delivered part to all Fina stations in Ottawa Valley and Gatineau.
In October of 1966, Roy was offered an Esso franchise, including auto repair bays, to lease by the Atlas district manager, Jack Denis, of Imperial Oil Ltd. Roy spent the next 31 years as an Esso franchisee, acquiring imperative knowledge and experience that has lead to his success in the auto repair and petroleum industries. In 1996, Imperial decided to get out of the auto repair business, and sold Roy the shop he had been running for the past three decades.
Roy, together with his children, Diane, Roydon and David, built a new, state-of-the-art building. They no longer had to worry about gas pumps and could focus solely on their true passion of providing top quality auto repair and maintenance services. Officially up and running on January 2, 1997, Roy Rump & Sons became what it is today, the name you can trust in automotive care.
Roy has been retired since 2003, and now his children continue with the same philosophies and integrity that Roy started back in the early 1950s.
