Bumbera’s Performance Associates is a family owned and operated business which opened in 1992 near the intersection of Hwy 6 & Memorial Dr. After almost 20 years at this location the family moved the well-established business a few minutes west to the historic old town of Katy, Texas. Bumbera’s Performance Associates now make its home on Hwy 90 in a remodeled century old building. The building itself has many stories within its walls and now serves as the most unique and talked about automotive business in the Houston area.
In the first two years of business, Bumbera’s grew quickly, doubled the size of the shop, becoming an authorized repair facility for many top manufacturers.
Bumbera’s has received awards for exhibiting “Outstanding Christian Character” in their day to day business practices from notable Christian organizations.
“Bumbera’s success is attributed to a high level of customer satisfaction which we believe is the result of honesty and a lot of hard work. We thank God and you, our customers, for our success and for making our jobs an adventure each and every day,” says Kenny Bumbera. “We’re proud to be serving the 3rd generation of some families we’ve known over the years.”
