The Milam Story

Milam Mazda began as Grant–Milam Oldsmobile in August of 1959. The company added a Jeep franchise just one year later, making us the oldest Jeep dealership in the great state of Washington. In 1974, Mazda and Subaru were introduced to the Milam family, establishing the third oldest Mazda dealership in America. Our Subaru and Oldsmobile franchises have since been discontinued allowing us to focus solely on Mazda.

President and Owner Kenneth Dinsmore began his career at Milam in 1976 at 13 years old. He has worked his way through every aspect of the company from his start washing cars, to sales, and finally becoming owner in the mid-1990s. Ken and his wife Stacey have lived in the Puyallup area for 30 years, raising 4 beautiful children, three of which have worked or currently work in the family business! We are always doing our best to carry out Milam's principles.

We believe honesty, trust, and integrity are the reasons that Milam continues to be a cornerstone in our community. We offer a comfortable, "down-home" buying experience for all our customers, past, present, and future. We look forward to meeting you and helping you make the right decisions for all of your automobile needs.
