Bob Anderson began repairing automobiles and welding part-time for hire in a one car garage at 1492 Baxter Road S.E., Salem, Oregon. He bought his auto parts from Mike Eastlund at a parts store that Mike managed a few blocks away. It all started with a box of tools, a welder, and a vice mounted to a coffee table.
A few years later Bob's brother-in-law, Glen Jones, joined him when he moved from Idaho. They rented a building and opened their first real repair facility. This was a two bay shop, located just behind the current business. They both worked on cars for several years with one or two helpers, until the business had grown to the point that they had to become full-time managers.
Today, there are four people in the front office, eight technicians, a service manager, maintenance person, and Bob and Glen. Our current facility totals 18 bays, which includes a drive through motorhome lift and an in-ground dynamometer. Please feel free to stop by with any automotive questions you may have.
