A & C Automotive Machine

I started out working in a gas station in 1972 on weekends and after school. in 1975, I attended Pine Technical College for Auto Mechanics for 2 years. I then attended Bemidji Technical college for automotive machining. I spent the next 7 years in a heavy duty industrial machine shop where I gained experience in machining and rebuilding engines. In 1985, my wife and I started A & C Engine Specialists in a small town near our home. We did custom machining and engine rebuilding for cars, light trucks and light industrial. in 1990 we moved to our current location and began offering engine installation and general auto repair. We eventually phased out of the machining to focus on general auto repair.

Our goal for our customers is a safe, reliable vehicle that lasts a long time. We want to help you make your vehicle last as long as possible and be as trouble free as possible.

5 Star review by Marv Widmark
I Have used A&C for about 15 years with all my vehicles. They are fair and honest, and their rates are reasonable. They have never tried to upsell unnecessary parts or services, and always give multiple options for repair. Would recommend highly. Services: Steering / Suspension, Air conditioning, Brakes, Engine repair, Exhaust
5 Star review by Eric Longtin
Absolutely fantastic service. My car broke down just north of North Branch, and this is where it was towed to. Little did I know how lucky I was at the time. The repairs were explained thoroughly, a fair estimate was given, and the staff updated me every step of the way. The total cost was even under the estimate as well! They do top-notch work, and I would recommend them to absolutely anyone. Well done A&C!
