About DeGreeve Auto Upholstery

DeGreeve Auto Upholstery Building

Being the oldest auto upholstery company in Alberta, DeGreeve Auto Upholstery is trusted among its customers for quality-workmanship. We began operations in 1930 as a proprietor firm under Theodore DeGreeve Senior. 

Born in Amsterdam, Holland, Theo Senior came to Alberta in 1926 and laid the foundation of Theo DeGreeve Auto Upholstery in 1930. With his hard work and dedication, he gained the trust of the residents and became a household name for all automotive-related services. And in 1952, he built the little yellow brick building which was located by the riverfront behind China Town near the Center Street Bridge. It was such a simple setup that you could only fit two cars inside at a time.

After Theo Senior, it was Theo DeGreeve Junior, who took command in 1966. Theo Jr. decided to drop the “Theo” from the name of the business, and that’s how DeGreeve Auto Upholstery came into existence. 

In 1983, Theo’s eldest son Darryl joined the company full-time, skillfully learning the family trade. He has maintained the quality of craftsmanship and creation. As the business flourished, the company outgrew the little yellow brick building, and in 1992, a new home was built on 10 Street & 10 Ave.

The business continued to thrive under the watchful care of Theo Jr. until 2005 when he decided to finally retire after his successful career of 40 years, and Darryl took over as the new owner of DeGreeve Auto Upholstery with 22 years of experience under his belt.

Now several years later, the company has seen many changes but continues to be the leader in the auto upholstery industry. We stand by our work and therefore, everything we do is guaranteed. With a team that has been in the business for decades, we specialize in high-quality and unique auto customization. You can contact us to get a free estimate.

Customer Reviews

Quick Service at Reasonable Prices

“DeGreeve did a perfect job replacing the leather and vinyl panels of the driver's seat bolster in my 4Runner. Some of the best customer service I've received in a long time. Price was reasonable, and the job was done fast. Also appreciate that this is a long-standing family business.”

Very Happy With the Service

“Requested an insert for the backseat of my Shelby GT350 for my dog's comfort (and to keep my interior undamaged), and they succeeded above & beyond my expectations. It's absolutely perfect: flat & cozy for my boy, and all in one day! Excellent work; we're very very happy. Thank you guys!”

On-Time Service

“These guys are the best. The repair was done on time and on budget on very short notice. The price quoted was a fraction of what the dealership quoted and Darryl also repaired a rip in the seat. I would not hesitate to return. Top of the line professional.”

-          Trevor L.

Quick and Fair Priced

“The guys work great and quick, are fair priced and professional. Very pleased with their work! Will definitely recommend to anyone.”

Affordable Services

“My passenger seat was having trouble moving back & forth. Dealership told me it sounded like the seat motor was failing, and since the seat motor is integrated into the new seat I would need a new seat, costing $2000! I took my vehicle into Darryl and his team, they diagnosed my seat and found out all I needed was a $15 part. Seat runs just like new now!! Thank you Degreeve, customer for life.”
