Roundhouse Harley-Davidson Expanding Into Powersports

Jeff Sanders and Matt Burgmeier are hard at work inside the former Smith Furniture building where total renovations are being done for a mid-February move of Roundhouse Harley Davidson and then Roundhouse Powersports. Jeff is Matt's brother-in-law and in charge of the renovations at the former Smith building.

Roundhouse Harley Davidson in Duncansville has been operated by the Burgmeier Hauling family since 2017. With the recent acquisition of Steve Seltzer Powersports in Pinecroft, the Burgmeiers are expanding their recreational vehicle line, renaming it Roundhouse Powersports.

"We believe we represent the best brands in the business." Burgmeier Vice President Matt Burgmeier said. "By bringing them together we will be able to provide an experience for our customers that no other dealership in our area will be able to offer."

This family driven enterprise consists of Matt, his father, Dave Burgmeier, president, both who are very involved with the day-to-day operations at Burgmeiers Hauling and at the new dealership also. Matt's brother-in-law, Jeff Sanders, is a key person at Burgmeiers, allowing Matt and Dave time required to develop the dealerships.  Jeff is also overseeing the construction project at Smith Furniture.  

Matt's mother, Deb Burgmeier, is also involved in the day-to-day operation at the new dealerships.  His sister, Keri Sanders, also plays an important role at Burgmeiers along with caring for her three sons.

"My wife, Ashley Burgmeier, works as a nurse and does a wonderful job caring for our four children when I'm not home," Matt said.

Tightknit, the family had a vision when Steve Seltzer approached them about purchasing his business. Matt explained that at first they were hesitant, but after some consideration believed they could create some synergies and make the Harley Davidson dealership less seasonal.

Burgmeiers will bring the Powersports business to Duncansville, at the former Smith Furniture location along Route 764. They purchased that property, and after taking the old building to the ground, built two separate dealerships side by side. By combining the two dealerships at one location, Burgmeier foresees the creation of synergies with the two while maintaining separation to highlight the different products. The Powersports product line currently includes Kawasaki, Honda, Husqvarna and Kymco.

Both the existing Roundhouse Harley Davidson building on Municipal Drive in Duncansville and the Seltzer building in Pinecroft will be vacated after both dealerships move to the new buildings. Matt Burgmeier expects to move the Harley Davidson operation by mid-February, after closing shop on Feb. 5 for the moving process.

Pleased with the success to date of Roundhouse Harley Davidson, Matt said, "We hope it doesn't rain as much in 2019."
