Culture & Benefits


Big things have small beginnings…

As with many great discoveries, Helion started almost by accident. A chance meeting with an Auto Dealer facing technology challenges turned into a partnership that has spanned almost two decades. A true “American Dream” story, Helion Technologies has followed the path of many dynamic tech start-ups like Hewlett-Packard, Dell, Amazon, Apple, Google. Founded in 1997 by Erik Nachbahr in his Baltimore, Maryland basement, Helion has quickly grown up to be America’s largest outsourced technology provider for Auto Dealerships.

Helion brings considerable brain-power and experience to bear on all things “Automotive Technology”. With hundreds of dealerships and body shops under management our staff is keenly in tune with the unique challenges, both technical and operational, faced by Auto Dealers. Beyond competence and expertise our team brings a firm understanding of what matters in Auto Dealerships. Following the Ritz-Carlton motto of “We are ladies and gentlemen serving ladies and gentlemen.” Helion endeavors to bring an un-computer-guy service experience to Dealership staff.
