EXPERTS in Automotive repair
Jonathan founded the company in 1981 with a dream of running a full service automotive repair station. With modest means he ran the gas pumps while also being the sole mechanic in the repair shop. His first hire came in 1982 with the addition of auto technician Sonny Kramer who is to this day a valued member of our team. After thirty years of vehicle repairs Jonathan has moved into a managerial role overseeing day to day operations.
Shirley is the co-founder and book-keeper of the company. Since day one her behind the scenes role has preserved the financial integrity of the company and maintained positive vendor relations. You can find her working away in the back office every day of the week.
By 1985 the repair shop needed a third technician. Upon Sonny's recommendation we were thrilled to hire his brother Jimmy and welcome him onto our team. With Jimmy's electrical system knowledge, among his many other mechanical skills, we were able to expand our client base. Unfortunately in 2016 Jimmy suffered a back injury so after thirty two years of automotive repair he is now serving our customers well booking appointments at the front desk. His knowledge as a technician has proved invaluable in interpreting customer's needs.
Brian joined the company in 1990. He started out front scheduling appointments and selling fuel but we quickly realized his skills would be better served working on vehicles. We appreciate his meticulous work ethic, fierce loyalty and care for the well-being of our business as a whole. It is also no secret that Fords hold a special place in his heart.
In 2010 we welcomed our son-in-law onto the team after he expressed an interest in joining the company. His previous employment in the army as a flight engineer and Chinook helicopter mechanic gave him a head start in the field of automotive repair. Justin served a tour in Afghanistan and after his marriage to our daughter Stephanie he was called to serve a second tour in Iraq. After the birth of their second child Justin decided to leave the military and pursue a career in the private sector. He is truly family both in life and business. Justin manages all storefront and fuel operations while contributing as yet another skilled technician in our shop.
You know you've run a successful business when you start hiring your employees' children. Jimmy's son Tim came to us eager to work at a young age, starting out front and eventually being promoted to a technician in our shop. Despite a scholarship to technical school he instead chose to learn on the job working alongside his father and uncle. Since 2010 Tim has been a valued asset to our company.
Although Stephanie is not a permanent fixture at the company just yet, she helps out when her schedule allows; her first priority being her two young children. But in due time Stephanie will take on more responsibility in the day to day operations eventually filling her mother's shoes.
