Our proprietors, Bruce and Jack, first met at Hansel Ortman (a Cadillac dealership) and were inseparable from the very beginning. As the dynamic created by their respective careers all the more strengthened the bonds that powered the company’s growth over the years: Bruce, the mechanic, and Jack, the parts specialist.
Expanding the Business
In 1960, our company capitalized on an opportunity to establish Bruce & Jack Auto Service, opening a shop in a small Chevron station. After a couple of years, we acquired additional land at the corner of Washington and Sutter and built a new garage with a lot of parking space near the Greyhound bus station, officially expanding the business.
A Promising Start
The new downtown location proved to be a huge advantage as the shop succeeded in serving more customers around the area. After 10 years, we had to move again to a different location to make way for the construction of a freeway. By 1971, Jack’s son, Paul began working for the company.
A New Home in Stockton
The company relocated to Orange and Oak, a residential area in Stockton, CA where business continued to flourish. A decade later, we moved to our current location after purchasing an automotive dealership building. We chose this building since it was near both our previous locations, allowing us to provide services to downtown and residential customers.
Pioneers in the City’s Auto Service Industry
During this time, we established the only diagnostic center in the whole city. The facility included equipment and tools that no other repair garage had. Today, we are still the most sought-after diagnostic and service garage in the area, thriving in our sixth decade of automotive service and repair.
Since 1960, Bruce & Jack Auto Service has been the premier auto service and repair facility in the area, providing wonderful service to our valued customers. Call us at 209-466-5364.
