BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — A pioneer for the carwash industry, Bill Morrison, recently passed away, according to secwa.org.

Morrison began his career in the carwash industry in 1955 at the Broad Street Car Wash in Chattanooga, Tennessee, stated the release, and in 1959 he moved to Atlanta, Georgia, to manage Mr. Kennon’s Minit Car Wash.

Morrison installed new carwash equipment across the Southeast for Automatic Car Wash Equipment Company, a Sherman distributor, and many carwash packages installed by Morrison are still in operation today, reported the release.

In 1969 Morrison bought Cars-A-Poppin Full Serve Car Wash located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, continued the release, and after eight years he sold the carwash in 1976 and established his equipment company, which “built, equipped and [serviced] carwashes across Southern Florida.”

In 1998 Morrison retired from the carwash industry to build and restore vintage cars, noted the release.
