About Us

Help! I love turning a wrench but my company needs me in the office and talking to customers. Our shop specializes in diesel fleet accounts. As a tech I loved working for fleets, less approval needed, big jobs, and overall a better experience. As an owner, I strive to have the majority of our work come from fleet accounts. At Curry Auto we know our mechanics are the backbone of our business. We strive to give our team members all the tools and recourses needed to get the job done right. I have no problem with helping with diagnosing and problem jobs but when an employee wants to take classes and training that is when I get excited. I live for giving all my employees any training they want or need.
