ABOUT CAR CRAFT AUTOMOTIVE
Business owner, Master Ford Technician, and dedicated husband and father to four children. He’s committed in all that he does, whether that’s running a successful repair shop, performing high-quality mechanical repairs or raising a healthy, happy family.
The combination of growing up on a farm and working with his father in various family businesses from the farm, excavating, fixing ski lifts to an automotive shop helped Tony develop a strong work ethic and integrity.
Tony had a successful career working as a Master Ford Technician yet yearned to be of even greater service. He opened his own custom-built garage and worked evenings and weekends. The little business thrived.
Customers love Tony’s mechanical skills and exceptional customer service so much so that some of them bring their trucks up from the lower mainland just to have Tony fix them.
When the opportunity to take over ownership of Car Craft became available in October 2013, Tony seized it. Everything about Car Craft appealed to Tony’s values and his belief in what a great automotive repair shop could be.
Tony’s credentials include
- Being a Master Ford Technician (this is the highest level achievable by Ford Technicians)
- 17 years Ford Diesel engine repair and Fords in general
- Won the Canada Skills competition for automotive technicians
