Edgewater Celebrating Small Business Month

In celebration of National Small Business Month, we spotlight a small business customer named Eurotech Motors. Zenop Tuncer is the small business owner of Eurotech Motors located in Edgewater, New Jersey. Tuncer continued in his father’s legacy of working as a mechanic and opened an automotive business to follow his passion and love for cars. He has been in business for over 40 years working on high-end European and foreign cars, with special emphasis on German vehicles. He has built strong relationships with his clientele over the span of his career – taking special care of their vehicles and providing automotive expertise that spans beyond repairs and maintenance. Tuncer takes great pride in his work and offers an attention to detail that shows him to be a true artist.

How did you get started as a business owner?
My love for cars began when I was 8 years old. My father, who was also a mechanic, allowed me to be around cars almost all my life and getting to watch him work was very inspiring. I have been in business for over 40 years. Prior to opening Eurotech Motors I owned several of my own gas stations, but I always felt as if there was something missing. That was when I decided to take a leap of faith and open my own business – and here today stands Eurotech Motors! Every day since then my work does not feel like work, I truly love what I do!

Tell us more about your business?
The Automotive Mechanical Engineering field has immensely evolved over the years, with cars today being a lot more computerized. Here at Eurotech Motors we offer an array of services, from routine maintenance to complex repairs. We particularly deal with high end automotive vehicles like Mercedes, BMWs, Rolls-Royces – as well as classic and foreign cars. I am truly passionate about the art, skill and craft required in my line of work.

What advice would you give others interested in becoming small business owners?
I would tell them to follow their dreams because there are no guarantees in life, but if you are willing to work hard for yourself then you can accomplish anything.

How did the partnership with Spencer Savings Bank form?
I was referred to the bank by one of my longtime customers who really liked banking there for various reasons. I already had my business and I wanted to open a business account. Now I have both a business and personal account with Spencer, a bank that I truly trust. It’s been around for over 100 years and is one of New Jersey’s strongest community banks. It’s safe, stable and secure. It also does a wonderful job serving small business customers.

How has Spencer helped you achieve your business goals?
I’ve found Spencer to truly provide the attention and care busy small business owners like myself need. You won’t find that at many places. With Spencer, you are more than just another customer, another number. I have known Sheerin Shamloo-Clavijo, Spencer’s Edgewater Financial Center Manager, for 6 years since opening my business account and we have become very close. Sheerin is wonderful and provides top-notch service. Whatever I need, the team always makes it easily accessible. Sheerin has been amazing to work with, as well as the entire Edgewater team, and it is always a pleasure to do business with them!

Spencer is proud to support our New Jersey small business community. Small businesses are an essential part of the U.S. economy.
