Detail Plus Car Appearance Systems Changes Ownership

Detail Plus has relocated to Dallas, Texas from its original Portland, Oregon home, in a strategic move to provide a more centralized location that also allows future growth.

Dallas, TX – Detail Plus Car Appearance Systems was acquired by Keith Duplessie from R.L. “Bud” Abraham on September 1, 2017. Detail Plus was founded in 1981 by Abraham, whose vision, stewardship, passion for, and involvement in the car wash and detailing industry helped him build the company into a world-leading supplier of detail equipment and accessories. Duplessie worked at the company for a number of years managing sales and technical services until 2012. Desiring to retire, but wanting to leave the company in good hands, Abraham “ . . . knew Keith would be a good fit to take on Detail Plus and carry the company forward into the future, and now was the right time to step away. The company will be in good hands and is ready to move into the future with Keith at the helm.”

Detail Plus has relocated to Dallas, Texas from its original Portland, Oregon home, in a strategic move to provide a more centralized location that also allows future growth. The company is completely up-and-running with full production capability at the time of this release. With his long history of involvement and dedication to the car washing and detailing industry, Duplessie plans to combine Abraham’s foundation of Detail Plus with developing industry trends. “We are excited to take Detail Plus forward,” Duplessie said, “with a new vision, new concepts, and a new physical location, in order to place the company it at the leading edge of the Car Wash and Detailing industry. Bud’s original vision set Detail Plus at the forefront of new concepts in detailing and I intend to carry on that tradition. We will continue to develop new products and systems that focus on making detailing more efficient and cost effective for our customers.”
