Gary "Doogie" Shop Owner

Gary "Doogie" | Made in America Roseville

My name is Gary, also known as "Doogie". in 1995 I graduated from Purdue with a BA in aircraft manufacturing and repair. I came to CA in 1996 and I needed employment until the aircraft industry had growth. So I took a job with Made in Japan and never left. I found that I believed in the shop's mission and decided to make it my career. Auto repair and great customer service proved to be a rewarding experience for me. In 2004 I took over ownership of the Fulton location and moved it to Howe Ave with the determination to take our shop to the next level of our evolution by providing a unique experience for both our clients and our crew. At the end of 2011 I was asked to step in as the new owner of the larger Roseville location. Our efforts keep us focused on our clients and their total experience here. We are also committed to providing a safe and enjoyable work environment for our staff. By providing constant education and up to date equipment, our staff has the support they need to always provide the very best service for our clients. We enjoy what we do and look forward to what the future has in store for us.

I've also worked with B.A.R (Bureau of Automotive Repair) in Licensing, ASE NATEF, ATI (Automotive Training Institute), and currently sit on the PAC advisory board for UTI (Universal Technical Institute) here in Sacramento. 

It is my mission to set the bar to which other shops are measured against.  Most shops claim to be the best. We will do anything to prove that we are the BEST! Anything less is unacceptable!

Our latest news is the opening of Rent 2 Wrench. At the beginning of 2015 we decided to open 9 of our bays to Rent 2 Wrench, a "Do It Yourself" automotive repair shop at the Roseville location in our second building. Now some of our clients can perform some of their own maintenance and repairs themselves under our guidance.

Things just keep getting better here at Made in Japan-Made in America!

Steffan ASE Master Technician and Service Manager

My name is Steffan, I am a Master Certified Technician with over 20 year experience and now the Service Manager here at Made in Japan-Made in America in Roseville. I met Doogie in a tech class over 17 yrs ago and he got me hired here back in 1999. We are very like minded and he has become one of my best friends. Today we might as well be brothers. I am proud to be working for him here at the Riverside location. I wouldn't have it any other way. Not many people can say they were able to find a job where the company shares the same level of passion that they do. Well, I can tell you, I am one of the lucky ones! Working here is like being part of an extended family, literally! I've never worked at a shop that values it's employees and clients as much as we do!

As the Service Manager, I get to share my expertise and experience with our clients. I am focused on my commitment on excellent customer service. I know our clients have many choices when it comes to choosing a shop, I want to make sure we are your only choice! It's my job and way of life to build a long and trusting relationship with each one of our clients and help them stay educated and reach their goals.

Aaron ASE Service Technician

Aaron | Made in America RosevilleMy name is Aaron and I am also an ASE Certified Technician here at Made in Japan-Made in America. I have over 10 yrs experience in the field with extensive training in under car steering and suspensions. Previously I had always worked for a large corporate stores. A few years back I got injured at work and was off for quite a while in physical theropy. Honestly, due to my experience and treatment at corp shops, I wasn't sure that I even wanted to get back into auto repair. Doogie found my resume on line and gave me a call. We had a great converstion and got inspired to try and give auto repair another chance. I'm so glad that I did. Working here has rekindled the passion that got me started in the first place. It has been a great experience work here with the rest of the team. I'm happy to be a part of something that actually makes a difference in people's lives.

 


Jackie Audit Specialist | Made in America Roseville

Jackie Audit Specialist

My name is Jackie, I came to Made in Japan-Made in America back in 1997. When ownership of the shops changed in 2004, I followed Gary to the Howe Ave shop. Now that he has taken over the Riverside location, I'll be working at both locations. I can't say enough about how much my life has changed by being apart of this family over the years. It is truly a blessing to be a part of his journey. Gary is like a son to me and it's been a true pleasure to watch him grow and evolve the business in to what it is today.

 

This area is reserved for someone special. If you are this person, stop by the shop to drop off a resume and meet our crew. We are always looking for new talent as we continue to grow.
