AUTOMOTIVE ACTION: Setting Innovations in Motion to Serve Community

“The world moves on tires.”

Born and raised in the City of York, Abdullah M. Jamison saw how automotive action can set innovations in motion by transporting products and big ideas. Understanding this statement firsthand, he decided to create a business offering quality, competitive automotive services. In 2007, his vision created S&O Auto Sales & Tire Service.

Jamison says that hard work, patience and prayers allowed him to purchase the building he now owns on South Richland Avenue. Today, S&O is a full-service garage and official authorized dealership offering the following automotive services:

Wheels and tire sales

Wheel repair (bent and cracked rims)

Mobile roadside service

Quality automobiles for sale

State inspection and emissions

Auto detailing

Truck lift kits

Ever the visionary, Jamison didn’t stop there. Recognizing that people need their wheels to get to work and school, he launched mobile automotive services that bring the best of his tire repair, replacement and vehicle maintenance work to customers at their homes or offices.

Jamison’s contributions to making a better York, he says, begins with the city’s youth. “You may be teaching them how to change tires or do oil changes, but what you’re doing is exposing them to something they can use throughout the rest of their lives.”

Jamison and his team has and will continue to focus on putting customers’ needs first. S&O helps the less fortunate in the York community by offering flexible payment options for those experiencing financial hardships.

What continually motivates him, he adds, is encouraging others not to let adversity — or a flat tire — stop them from traveling forward. “It doesn’t matter if a million people tell you what you can’t do, or if 10 million tell you ‘no,’” he says. “If you get one ‘yes’ from God, that’s all you need.”

YRK PERSPECTIVES:

What Is a Creator and Maker?

It’s someone who is a person of value, someone who sees that for every problem, there is a solution. Don’t be the person who works inside the box. If York wants to be competitive in the global market, we need to broaden our horizons, think creatively and learn to work together.
