Rebuilding the legacy of DeLorean: a company of innovation, a timeless product
When Stephen Wynne came to the United States in the late ‘70s to pursue the American Dream, little did he know that he would soon become one of the most highly regarded mechanics in the DeLorean community.
Having set up a shop in California working on English and French cars, Wynne was approached by one of his customers who was also in need of work on their DeLorean.
Because of the likeness of the DeLorean to the cars in which he specialized in, Wynne agreed to work on the DeLorean — and the rest is history.
Wynne acquired most of the remaining inventory of DeLorean parts (which had been liquidated after the original company’s bankruptcy), as well as the name and logo of DeLorean Motor Company (DMC).
For many years, the new DeLorean Motor Company has been the exclusive source for official Delorean parts and quality servicing and maintenance for DeLoreans. DeLorean Motor Company is dedicated to providing Delorean parts and quality service to DeLorean owners at an affordable price.
Additionally, DeLorean Motor Company offers many ways for fans across the world who may not own the car to stay active in the community through merchandise, events, and social media.
With a main office in Texas, DeLorean Motor Company currently has offices and independently-owned franchises across the United States, as well as international affiliates.
As a business of innovation and forward-thinking, DeLorean Motor Company utilizes partnerships with leading logistics providers and technology solutions to help with workflow and management.
Since 2006, DeLorean Motor Company has been using Acctivate inventory management software to help organize and oversee operations.
