Commencing business in 1993 with only himself and an apprentice, Spiro Papadimatos began to carve himself a reputation based on a simple but fundamental business premise :- never let a vehicle leave unless the repairs are 100% right.
It was not long before Spiro needed additional staff to handle the burgeoning work load that came his way – mainly from referrals from existing customers, and within a year the staff had grown to 4 mechanics, plus Spiro. With this ever increasing work load came a need for more specialised equipment, and in 1995 we took delivery of a state-of-the-art Dyno Dynamics 4WD Dyno, the only one of its type in NSW at the time.
As computer technology played an ever increasing role in the operation of the modern motor vehicles, we also moved with the times and installed sophisticated fuel injection and computer testing equipment to keep abreast of this growing technology .
Interestingly, many new car dealerships send their problematic vehicles to us to rectify – a testimony to our skills in this demanding niche. Granted a Unichip dealership in 1997, Autotech moved into the engine management recalibration market, a natural extension to the EFI work in which we were already recognised as market leaders.
By this time we were bursting at the seams, so purchasing the property next door seemed an obvious move – to house our newly formed exhaust division. Catering for the standard family car or developing custom big bore performance exhaust systems for racers, Autotech Exhausts are developed in-house to maximise volumetric efficiency whilst maintaining legal noise levels – which translates to more efficient operation of your vehicle.
Today Autotech comprises 12 specialist staff, most of who have been with us since its inception back in the early 90’s. We also have an Operations Manager, a Sales Manager and dedicated account managers working with the specialist staff on the shop floor, ensuring repairs are carried out in a pleasant, convenient and hassle free manner - getting you back on the road quickly, safely and cost effectively.
It is easy to see how we have grown from a small two man operation to become one of Sydney’s, if not Australia’s most comprehensive specialist automotive workshop. Log book servicing, general repairs and maintenance, fleet maintenance, brake repairs, automatic transmission servicing/ rebuilding and all exhaust work is handled effortlessly under the one roof.
It’s no wonder that statutory bodies such as CAMS even rely on our skill and expertise – they consulted us on various technical engine issues when formulating the new Australia-wide “Saloon Car” series.
We have the skills, the staff, the professionalism and the commitment to offer nothing less than the very best in customer service when working on your vehicles.
