About Us Precision Auto
My love of cars began as a young boy. My father ran an auto repair shop in Bethesda and we were very close. I spent a great deal of time there "helping" my father. When I got a little older, we built go-carts, re-furbished mini-bikes, and overhauled four-wheelers. We would buy these items cheap because they didn't run, and then we would do a complete overhaul. We had more fun building them than driving them.
In high school, I took Auto Shop. I bought a 1964 Pontiac GTO that was in horrible shape and literally dragged it to the school. My class and I spent the next year restoring the GTO inside and out. I got a job at Germantown Amoco to earn the money to pay for the parts and supplies I needed for the car. The Amoco was only a couple miles from my house and I could ride my bike back and forth to work. At the age of 16, I had one of the coolest cars in town.
After high school, I worked with my father and started evening classes to get my ASE certifications. I became a Master Technician. More importantly, the on the job training I received from my father was priceless. He had an outstanding work ethic and always did a quality repair. He taught me what was right, fair and ethical. When my father decided to retire, I decided that I wanted to own an auto shop in Germantown. I began repairing cars right out of my parent's house, saving my money and looking for a commercial location in Germantown.
I found that property in 1979 and built the shop in 1982. I concentrated on the business, worked long and hard and hired staff slowly as the business grew. With the support of my family and friends, my business became a success.
In 2002, I completed an addition to our shop, expanding it from 5 to 10 bays. Our business has continued to grow and the expansion has allowed us to better serve our customers.
In 2007, my son Andy decided to join us in the business. I was thrilled to have the chance to teach my son and he is working hard.
I haven't forgotten where I came from, or the values that my father taught me. The employees at my shop represent those values every day. I am very proud to say that when you come to Precision Auto, you will get the quality service that you deserve.
