   Dan Paulhamus, Founder/Owner of Paulhamus Diesel Performance LLC
Dan’s 20 years experience in the diesel industry provides him the experience and knowledge to offer optimal service at PDP.  He began his career at a local auto dealership as an ASE master technician.  He gained hands-on experience and took the opportunity to continue his education in General Motors training. From there, he worked for a gas company and gained his Caterpillar Gas Engine certification.  Dan’s passion for the diesel industry inspired him to open up his own shop.   After noticing the demand in the area for a diesel repair shop he chose to take a risk and build his own company, Paulhamus Diesel Performance. He started the shop out of a small garage in the Jersey Shore area.  Quickly, business expanded and a larger shop became necessary.  As of 2019, PDP moved into a new location at 2007 Dennison Dr. in Jersey Shore. Dan is ASE certified and provides PA state inspections & emissions.  His passion for the industry turned his love of mechanics into his own successful business.  PDP’s standard of quality service and a strong team of technicians make Paulhamus Diesel Performance the reliable choice in Pennsylvania and nationwide.
