Carl Hutchinson, Owner
Carl has been the car industry since 1982, but has worked on vehicles long before that time. He has a passion for engineering, for understanding how vehicles run, and for diagnosing problems. Earlier in his career, Carl worked on carburetors and eventually became an expert in diagnostics for all vehicle makes and models. Carl’s experience in the automotive industry led him to his position as our shop owner, where he works every day to provide quality, valuable service to all customers.
Maureen Hutchinson, Owner
Maureen has been in the car industry since 2008, with previous work in cosmetology. She has a passion for great customer service and enjoys helping customers from Springfield and the surrounding communities. Maureen particularly likes adding a female touch to the shop and automotive repair industry, and she is glad to see that influence on automotive service. Some of Maureen’s hobbies include going to the lake, fishing, and hiking, making jewelry, and traveling. Carl and Maureen also enjoy activities with their sons, Tyler and Trey.
