“I take pride in my work and I want my repairs to outlast expectation. I care about presenting a team of competent and courteous employees, creating a working atmosphere that you would feel comfortable coming into. I strive to honor God with the talents and abilities that He has given me, knowing that it is Him I must answer to and not just you, my valued customer.” – Kevin Brown

Kevin is the oldest of his four siblings, and grew up on a dairy farm in Carey, OH. There he learned the importance of properly working machinery, and showed an interest in the inner components and repairs of those machines at an early age. He was good at it and pursued a career through education, internships, and various employment with major dealerships. He saw transmissions as the biggest challenge and knew that if he could master that he could get a job anywhere. But along the way he learned all the other components of the car until knowing how a car worked inside and out became secondhand. He received his ASE Certification as a Master Automobile Technician by 1998, and is up to date on all renewals until 2015.
