A BRIEF HISTORY
Boyden & Perron Garage, Inc. was founded in 1956 by Ted Boyden and Ed Perron to provide reliable automotive repairs and sell gasoline. Together they earned a reputation for being good mechanics with honesty and integrity in their repair business.
During the 1950's, the modern convenience of motorized "power" lawn mowers were becoming popular and replacing the old fashion "reel" mower.

So, by 1962 many of Ted & Ed's customers were asking if they could also repair a power lawn mower. Ed's two sons, Don (age 10) and Tom (age 8) would work after school repairing any lawn mowers that might have come in that day. Unbeknownst to Ted and Ed, the seed for the present day Boyden & Perron was planted.

Over the years there have been many changes. Ted Boyden retired in 1976, while Ed continued the business, keeping the name of Boyden & Perron. The business continued to grow with the help of his wife, Helen, who worked in the office handling sales and bookkeeping, his sons Don, an automotive mechanic, and Tom, a small engine mechanic, and his daughter Sandy, who later joined the business to help Helen in the office.

By 1987, Ed discontinued the sale of gasoline and refocused the business on the repair service and sale of outdoor power equipment. The sale of commercial outdoor power equipment to the landscape contractor market was added in 1994, and by 1998, Ed and Helen retired from the day to day operations and transferred ownership of the business to their children, Don, Tom, and Sandy. In 1999, Boyden & Perron became a certified Massachusetts Motor Vehicle Inspection Station.
