We added two more top-of-the-line, in-ground, hydraulic lifts. Productivity triples when a workspace is equipped with a Lift. We now have 11 lifts total in our shop. Only four workspaces left for future improvements.
We get a lot of compliments on our clean shop floor, and we wanted our clients to know that it’s no accident! For us, we strongly believe that a good job is a clean job. Continuously cleaning is only half the trick, because it’s a repair shop after all, and the floors do wear down. So, every 2 to 4 years the shop floor is ground down and recoated professionally. It's a messy and expensive undertaking, but so worth it.
The 21st Annual Mercedes Club Oktoberfest was again a great success! The tradition started in 1994 the month after TGA opened for business, and soon evolved from tech sessions to the consistently, most attended event of the local club chapter.
