Arrow has been in existence since 1947, and was originally owned by our illustrious Joe DiShanni. Robert Faris purchased the shop in 1975, and partnered with Dawn DeVroom and Dave Nguyen 20 years ago. Arrow has seen many changes since 1947 but is currently a complete mechanical repair business located on the corner of Irwindale Avenue and First Street.
Arrow has always been a part of the community, in part by its simple longevity, but more importantly through our dedication to building strong community relationships. These relationships are characterized by a service orientation, community outreach, and involvement in our community’s current affairs.
Arrow makes a commitment to providing strong lasting relationships. Part of building these relationships is providing service to others. Arrow has always been involved in local athletics, and has donated time and money to programs such as Kare Youth League and Habitat for Humanity. Arrow has also made charitable donations to many church programs.
Dawn DeVroom, CEO/CFO, has been an active Board member of the Charter Oak School District PTA, and has donated to many projects over the past 13 years to support the Charter Oak School District. She is currently on the Irwindale Chamber of Commerce Board, Irwindale Public Library Foundation Board, South Hills Professional Board, Charter Oak High School Golf Tournament Board, and actively involved in many other valuable programs.
Chamber of Commerce Activity
Arrow has been so excited to be part of the Chamber’s events and to support the outstanding programs that are available. Arrow has donated time, money, and energy to the Chamber Golf Tournament, Chamber committees, and events whenever possible.
