One of the newest chamber members of the Port Jefferson Station/Terryville family is Orray Lowe, owner and operator of Maximum Automotive. Orray bought the familiar shop at 129 Hallock Avenue in October, bringing with him a Mechanical Engineering degree, and years working on aircraft engines. That and his know-how in real estate, brought him to Port Jefferson Station. “I’ve got excellent employees that stayed on with me. Every day I continue to reach customers in the database who are welcoming and providing insight. Their support helps me as I re-create this community automotive business,” said Orray.

Maximum Automotive wants to be your ‘dealership alternative’, saving you travel time and offering conveniences like a free customer shuttle. They provide a thorough explanation of potential work before any job commences. The seating area is comfortable with a fresh pot of coffee and water free, while you wait. Orray is hands-on, either at the front desk or in the bay    at work.

He can also boast his participation in the Port Jefferson Station/Terryville Chamber of Commerce Winter Fundraiser. Passing out cookies, pop corn, hot chocolate and jingle bells to kids and their caregivers was a great help at a recent viewing of The Polar Express. He also attended the recent Train Car Lighting. “When you’re a member of the Port Jefferson Station/Terryville Chamber of Commerce, you have a sense of belonging. What we do is all about connecting with the community,” he said, adding, “I’d like to connect with school students for a car wash fundraiser this Spring.” Our Chamber of Commerce can help him make that connection.
