BENSALEM, Pa., July 17, 2018 (Newswire.com) - East Coast Cycle Center, Inc. (ECCC), was organized in 1971 and was owned and operated exclusively by Mr. Walter (Walt) J. Young. The business began operations in a 4000 sq. Ft. leased building at 1400 Street Road, Bensalem, PA, which Walt subsequently purchased, and then expanded through the years. Walt added additional product lines, and after obtaining a state inspection license, opened a new and larger state inspection service center.
