Generations of Family Style Caring & Automobile Repair!
Nothing is more unpredictable than survival in business,
so when you see a shop that has been around for 75 years
and four generations, you marvel at how it must have
weathered the storms.
The Earl family story began in 1933 with Grandpa Floyd
opening his first service station. In the mid 50's,
sons Bob Sr. and Norm Sr. developed the family image. Thru
the 70's, Bob Sr. (CEO) groomed sons Jim and Bob (3rd
generation) to perpetuate the family business. In
the late 70's, Jim (President) and Bob (Secretary/Treasurer)
went into the specialized area of Transmission rebuilding
along with general auto repair.
Once a "one-horse proprietorship", Earl Bros.
is now a sprawling business with 6 multi-bay car care
centers that have several other family members working
hard to keep them running smoothly. The main facility
at Renwyck Dr. is managed by Rich Earl (Jim's son).
The radiator rebuilding division is operated by cousin
Norm Earl. Brother-in-law Jeff Booth manages the Secor
Rd location. "We work here", explains
Jim. "It's our family name. We own and
operate our locations....and our customers know that
if they want to come in and meet the owners they can. We're
committed to our family, we're committed to our employees
and we're committed to our customers."
