A hobby turned biz, this car shop focuses on European car portfolio
EUROTECHNIK Auto Parts & Services has fared a long way since its humble beginnings in 2012, when it serviced to just around three to five cars a week, in a secluded 40 square meter property right along Panagdait in Cebu City. It was never meant to be a business, says founders Kyle Uy and Joeven Lee, and that the idea of it was simply inspired by their enthusiasm for driving and tinkering with cars. They said that their friends used to get their help for some car troubles, until finally the two decided to get a space for their hobby. Word-of-mouth got around, and from their friends to their friends’ friends, their clientele grew in a span of two years.
Starting May 2014, Eurotechnik has been located in a roomy facility that can now cater up to 30 units at a time, complete with up-to-date and first-class tools and equipment, not to mention, a cozy waiting lounge slash mini bar right on the second floor. As the name implies, it caters to European cars, and only European cars including Mercedez Benz, BMW, Mini, Volkswagen, Audi, Porsche, Volvo, Peugeot, Jaguar, Land Rover, Lamborghini and Ferrari.
“We’re strict on the portfolio here because we’ve invested in equipment, tools and diagnostic computers specifically for these European brands,” explains Kyle Uy. The shop does general servicing, minor and major repairs, unit modifications, engine and transmission rebuild, call-out service, and houses genuine and OEM replacement parts, among others. Their staff is composed of specialist mechanics who have long been trusted on their work with European cars. Then to keep their systems up-to-date, they have overseas consultants who monitors the shop’s service and processes regularly.
“In a nutshell, it’s a hobby turned into a business,” Kyle sums up. As car owners and aficionados themselves, they know the kind of experience that is preferred, which they have made sure to offer in Eurotechnik: high-quality workmanship, faster lead time, personalized service, and competitive rates.
