The Gee History

In 1983, George Gee laid the cornerstone for a remarkable legacy when he founded Gee Automotive Companies in Spokane, Washington. Over the years, George, alongside his wife Theresa, and later spearheaded by their son, Ryan Gee, transformed a single Pontiac dealership into a thriving network that extended across Seattle, Portland, Boise, Tucson, and Southern California. Today, we are proud to announce the latest chapter in this storied journey with the launch of Gee Heavy Machinery, Northern California’s foremost Komatsu dealer.

As a company rooted in the ethos of “families serving families,” we understand the importance of exceptional service. Our dedicated team, now over 2,200 members strong, remains committed to upholding the high standards that have defined the Gee Automotive Companies legacy for nearly four decades.

Whether you are already familiar with our automotive heritage or are just discovering our expertise in heavy machinery, know that Gee Heavy Machinery is deeply grounded in tradition and eager to serve your construction needs. Our expansion into Northern California marks an exciting new chapter in our history, and we look forward to building lasting relationships with our customers in this vibrant region.
