Coulson's Sales and Service, your Independent Servicing STIHL Dealer, invites you to visit our store. We are a family owned and operated dealership and have been servicing our customers for the past 65 years. Established in 1950, Dale Coulson first opened his doors repairing bicycles and lawnmowers. He began selling Cooper and Lawn-Boy mowers as well as parts. Dale's wife, Dorothy, would "man" the shop during the day while Dale maintained his full time job at the Allenport Steel Mill as a foreman. When Dale asked Dorothy, then the mother of three boys, "Do you want a new home or add a building next to the house for a sales and repair shop?", she answered very practically. With thoughts of college tuition ahead for their children she said, "A shop for sure!".
A couple of years later, Dorothy gave birth to Dean Coulson, who would eventually become the next generation shop owner. Dorothy would wait on customers with Dean on one hip and sometimes a chainsaw on the other! So, needless to say, Dean grew up in the business. In 1986, Dean and his wife Lori, took over Coulson's Sales and Service as their own but still with the help and support of his parents.
The shop has since expanded and the showroom holds at least one of each model of STIHL's full line of powerful, lightweight, and versatile handheld outdoor power equipment. Coulson's service everything they sell and have a large inventory of parts on hand to expedite the customers experience. STIHL both offers and requires the specific education of their equipment and technology. Dean's son Shaun maintains his Elite Gold certified and Master Wrench certification with STIHL's highest honors.
Next year will be the third generation take over. Shaun Coulson, along with his wife Kimberly, will soon be holding the reigns with the help and support of his parents.
